Why I Build SocialUniqorn?
I love Twitter! I'm spending a lot of time on it, having conversations with other developers, promoting content by others and myself.
But composing Twitter Threads on Twitter is not easy. If you are a content creator, you know what I mean.
You don't get an overview of all your tweets, especially if you copy your content from your blog.
I think using your already written content for Twitter Threads is a great idea, but using Twitter.com or the app is painful.
To make this simpler, I created SocialUniqorn. I started it for myself first but realized others could benefit from it as much as I do 😁
How Did I Build SocialUniqorn?
The frontend is built entirely with Next.js. The styling is mainly done in Styled-components , and talking to the Twitter API is done via the excellent Netlify Functions (I used TypeScript).
The super-easy service of Auth0 does the authentication. You can get started for free, so that is awesome.
This application is ultimately built by packages from the OpenSource community, so I would love to thank everyone that contributes to those packages 🙏
Here is a list of all the packages I used for the project.
- React Icons
- Twitter Lite
- Auth0 / Nextjs-auth0
