Twitter Clone

A recreation of the Twitter Website

Netlify Status

This is a demo project meant for learning/teaching purposes. It is using a React front-end with a Twitter API developed concurrently in Elixir/Phoenix, but it should work well with any REST API backend.


As this is meant to be a replica of both the back-end and front-end of the Twitter site. The project will have as many features of modern Twitter as possible. This will include:

  • Account Creation
  • User Authentication (Login/Logout)
  • Create and Delete Tweets
  • Follow/Unfollow Users
  • View Timeline of Tweets from Followed Users
  • View Recommendations of Who to Follow
  • Like/Retweet Tweets
  • Filter Tweets by tags
  • View Trends
