How to integrate social media plugins if developing locally?

Hi there- should I wait to host my site live first in order to use the social media plugins? I've noticed that Twitter asks for a callback url- so far, the site is on my localhost.

Any ideas/suggestions would be helpful!

You may need to setup a staging environment that is still testing but is online in order to get certain web websites like that working.
