Tweet using Python

PythonProgrammingServer Side Programming

Before using Tweet in Python, we have to follow some steps.

Step1 − at first we must have a tweeter profile and then it has to be added with our mobile number.

First go to - Settings -> Add Phone -> Add number -> Confirm -> Save.

We have to follow these steps. Then turn off all text notifications.

Step2 − Set up a new app.

Follow − Twitter Apps -> Create New App -> Leave Callback URL empty -> Create Twitter application.

Then display message "Your application has been created. You review and adjust your application's settings".

Step3 − By default, the access of tweet is read-only. For sending out tweets, requires write permission.

Follow − Permissions tab -> what type of access does your application need? -> Choose Read and Write -> Update settings.

Display this kind of message "The permission settings have been successfully updated. It may take a moment for the changes to reflect."

Step4 − Take time to get the keys and access tokens.

Follow − Keys and Access Tokens tab.

Click Create my access token.

Display "Your application access token has been successfully generated"

Then verify that the access token/secret - and the read or write permission.

Step5 − last is to installtweety. And the command is pip install tweety.
