302 is a redirect of a URL. We're not redirecting the URL https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize, we're redirecting from https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize to the callback URL.
Using the 302 code would mean we are telling browsers that https://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize is actually callback URL - which is not correct.
