NOTE: Further configuration is needed to enable fetching user emails through your Twitter App. Take a look at Twitter's doc for specifics.

The rule which makes the call to Twitter to retrieve the email is as follows. Do not forget to update consumerKey and oauthTokenSecret properly.

This rule will not persist the returned email to the Auth0 user profile, but will return it to your application. If you want to persist the email, it will need to be done with app_metadata as described here. For example, you can save it under app_metadata.social_email.

Rules can be used to enrich and transform the user profile, deny access to specific users under certain conditions, retrieve information from external services and much more. For more information about rules, please check the documentation
