Visit to app/Model/User.php and set fillable property put the below code here :

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Laravel\Fortify\TwoFactorAuthenticatable;
use Laravel\Jetstream\HasProfilePhoto;
use Laravel\Sanctum\HasApiTokens;

class User extends Authenticatable
{
    use HasApiTokens;
    use HasFactory;
    use HasProfilePhoto;
    use Notifiable;
    use TwoFactorAuthenticatable;

    /**
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'name',
        'email',
        'password',
        'twitter_id',
        'oauth_type',
    ];

    /**
     * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.

        'password',
        'remember_token',
        'two_factor_recovery_codes',
        'two_factor_secret',
    ];

     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $casts = [
        'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',
    ];

    /**
     * The accessors to append to the model's array form.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $appends = [
        'profile_photo_url',
    ];
}

Next step, Go to app/database/create_users_table.php and put the below code here :

<?php
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
class CreateUsersTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->increments('id');
            $table->string('name');
            $table->string('email')->unique()->nullable();
            $table->string('provider');
            $table->string('provider_id');
            $table->timestamp('email_verified_at')->nullable();
            $table->string('password')->nullable();
            $table->rememberToken()->nullable();
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }
    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('users');
    }
}

Step 6: Add Routes for Twitter App

To routes in the web.php file. Go to /routes/web.php file update the following routes into it:

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\TwitterController;

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
*/
 
Route::get('auth/twitter', [TwitterController::class, 'loginwithTwitter']);
Route::get('auth/callback/twitter', [TwitterController::class, 'cbTwitter']);

Step 7: Create Controller

Open command prompt and run the following command to create a controller name TwitterSocialController.php file:

php artisan make:controllerTwitterSocialController 

Then navigate to app/http/controllers directory and open TwitterSocialController.php file. And update the following code in TwitterSocialController.php file:

<?php
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Auth;
use Exception;
use Socialite;
use App\Models\User;
class TwitterController extends Controller
{
    public function loginwithTwitter()
    {
        return Socialite::driver('twitter')->redirect();
    }
       
    public function cbTwitter()
    {
        try {
     
            $user = Socialite::driver('twitter')->user();
      
            $userWhere = User::where('twitter_id', $user->id)->first();
      
            if($userWhere){
      
                Auth::login($userWhere);
     
                return redirect('/home');
      
            }else{
                $gitUser = User::create([
                    'name' => $user->name,
                    'email' => $user->email,
                    'twitter_id'=> $user->id,
                    'oauth_type'=> 'twitter',
                    'password' => encrypt('admin595959')
                ]);
     
                Auth::login($gitUser);
      
                return redirect('/home');
            }
     
        } catch (Exception $e) {
            dd($e->getMessage());
        }
    }
}

Step 8: Install Laravel Livewire and Jetstream Packages

Run the following commands on terminal to install livewire and jetstream package:

composer require laravel/jetstream

npm install

npm run dev

php artisan migrate

Step 9: Update Login View

Visit views/auth/ directory and open login.blade.php file, and update the following code into it:

<x-guest-layout>
    <x-jet-authentication-card>
        <x-slot name="logo">
            <x-jet-authentication-card-logo />
        </x-slot>
        <x-jet-validation-errors class="mb-4" />
        @if (session('status'))
        <div class="mb-4 font-medium text-sm text-green-600">
            {{ session('status') }}
        </div>
        @endif
        <form method="POST" action="{{ route('login') }}">
            @csrf
            <div>
                <x-jet-label value="{{ __('Email') }}" />
                <x-jet-input class="block mt-1 w-full" type="email" name="email" :value="old('email')" required
                    autofocus />
            </div>
            <div class="mt-4">
                <x-jet-label value="{{ __('Password') }}" />
                <x-jet-input class="block mt-1 w-full" type="password" name="password" required
                    autocomplete="current-password" />
            </div>
            <div class="block mt-4">
                <label class="flex items-center">
                    <input type="checkbox" class="form-checkbox" name="remember">
                    <span class="ml-2 text-sm text-gray-600">{{ __('Remember me') }}</span>
                </label>
            </div>
            <div class="flex items-center justify-end mt-4">
                @if (Route::has('password.request'))
                <a class="underline text-sm text-gray-600 hover:text-gray-900" href="{{ route('password.request') }}">
                    {{ __('Forgot your password?') }}
                </a>
                @endif
                <x-jet-button class="ml-4">
                    {{ __('Login') }}
                </x-jet-button>
            </div>
            {{-- Laravel Login with Twitter Demo--}}
            <div class="flex items-center justify-end mt-4">
                <a class="btn" href="{{ url('auth/twitter') }}"
                    style="background: #1E9DEA; padding: 10px; width: 100%; text-align: center; display: block; border-radius:4px; color: #ffffff;">
