Uploading media to twitter using API in electron app


Trying to get my electron app to upload to Twitter directly using the Twitter API, but I’m worried that the code would expose the app’s Twitter oauthCredentials. How big a security problem would this be? Would best practice suggest I use an intermediate server to handle the API request?

Thanks in advance.


Generally speaking if this is a concern, then yes, you might want to consider that, or any other way to obfuscate the credentials.
