React, Redux and Firestore

One of my goals in creating the Twitter Clone Application is to transition my personal base template from Firebase to Firestore.  At first this seemed like a fairly trivial task - I rooted through some documentation and with not too much trouble I was able to pull back a simple document collection.  However, I quickly...
