Step 9: Create a Python Test Script

Keep the Consumer Secret a secret. This key should never be human-readable in your application.

yes indeed, check out these examples (both mine)JustDiedBot – a Twitterbot that scrapes Wikipedia and tweets RIPs for recent deaths:SelfiesBot – a Twitterbot that tweets images of itselfhave fun!

I have by own ISP and about 10 Twitterbots, and so I create an email address for each one through my ISP. My Twitterbots also value their privacy, so the ISP option is a good one.

File tweet_test.py, line 2, in module

Word of warning:Youll want to be cautious about over-tweeting or spamming people with replies. This behavior might get your account suspended.

So have to try this. Have you gotten a chance to publish[ing] the code and an Instructable on Twitter-scraping

Run the latest package updates and upgrades, just to make sure everything is current you will have to have wifi access for this step. Type in the commands:

ImportError: No module named requests_oauthlib

Great tutorial! I have a question though. Do you have any thoughts on how to address what twitter says:

Open the Terminal window and on the command line, type:

We dont need the mobile phone number on your Twitter account, so go back to this screen and chooseDelete phone

i wonder how can i tweet the picture by using this method ?

Hey guys, great article! What are your thoughts on tools like and similar sites? Ive been using their service to get more followers on my Twitter account, great stuff!

(I know, I know, the variable names are different in the screenshot than the script I wrote. Busted).Add TipAsk QuestionCommentDownloadStep 10: Run the Python Script and Check Out the Tweetexecute the Python script

return self.request(endpoint, POST, params=params, version=version)

i have added a gpio push button to upload tweet from a choice of random messages .

Youll need this for a later step, but do it now. To activate a Twitter app, youll need a mobile phone number tried to your account for verification. We can remove this later.

Hi, the various threads on Stack Overflow will be help answer this question:

from requests_oauthlib import OAuth1, OAuth2

In the meantime, do check outJustDiedBot it is up and running as of today!

Turn off text notifications at the next dialog box and then leave this tab open in your browser.

One thing youll want to check out is using the crontab, which will let you do timed operations such as send a Tweet out every hour or once a day.

The first thing youll need to do is change the permission, click onmodify permissionson the Access level tab

accessToken = 1239821-dakos81koamow9918ma0sads电话

Still kinda curious, how can I get what someone said on a website, and tweet that?

Did you make this project? Share it with us!

At the Create an Application dialog box, enter:

File /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/twython/api.py, line 14, in module

So i want to make the bot tweet random quotes i set up, How may i do that? Im a beginner in coding and i cant find this anywhere!

Im using the Mac OS for this guide, but you can extend the principles to other operating systems.

One of my art projects for 2014 has beenBot Collective an ongoing project where I make Twitterbots that live on the Raspberry Pi and have physical bodies. Ive defintely become familiar with how to make a Pi into a Twitter engine and want to share my knowledge.

I learned most of this fromthis makeu搜索引擎优化f guide, which was nearly complete. I wanted to cover the additional steps of setting up your application via Twitter. But the rest of this guide has been invaluable to me.

File /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/twython/endpoints.py, line 112, in update_status

– Link to valid URL (this can be changed later)

I had the same issues with this. To correct it I ran: sudo pip install twython –upgrade

This may change if Twitter changes their application protocol, but heres the procedure for the time being:

Id like to see many Bot Friends in the Twitterverse.

I tried as you wrote but some error appear :

Ive written many how-to guides for the Raspberry Pi in my quest to learn this platform.

This may take a minute, so hit refresh on your browser after a few seconds until you get a dialog box like this (once again, Ive blacked out my private information).

ssh into your Raspberry Pi, or else use the monitor. In this case, I prefer ssh, since I can copy-and-paste the application keys directly.

your twitter consumer and access information goes here

This Instructable will show you how to set up your Raspberry Pi to send Twitter messages.

Yes, you can. Its been awhile since Ive done this, so I cant remember off the top of my head.But, my SelfiesBot project does this and here is the code on my GitHub repo, which you are welcome to adapt and try out.Good luck!Scott

Copy the alphanumeric strings for the API key, API secret, Access token and Access token secret to a secure location like 1Password at least to a text file or to Evernote.

Click on theAPI Keys Tab, and you will see a dialog with your API keys. What we want to do now is create your Access Token. Click on theCreate Access Tokenbutton and you will be given an Access token + secret.

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgradeThere will be a lot of waiting and Linux garble, so take break and pet your cat. Now, install the Twython libraries, which will let you use Twitter from Python using these three commands:sudo apt-get install python-setuptools sudo easy_install pip sudo pip install twythonYoull see more Linux stuff and then you should be good to go.Add TipAsk QuestionCommentDownloadStep 2: Create Email for Account

and if i can what is the thin that i need to do?

Please be positive and constructive.

Before doing this Instructable, please make sure you have your Raspberry Pi up and running, which you can do withThe Ultimate Raspberry Pi Configuration GuideInstructable.

Click on theDetailstab and then youre back at the Application Settings dialog. Wait for a minute and click on Refresh until your Access level changes to Read/Write.

File /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/twython/__init__.py, line 23, in module

We are done with the basic tutorial.

Go toSettingsand check out theMobiletab.

Choose eitherRead and WriteorRead, Write and Access direct messages, the latter if your Twitterbot will parse DMs.

Step 7 of my Launch Python script on Startup for Raspberry Picovers timed events with crontab, as well as directing any crontab errors to an appropriate logfile.

File /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/twython/api.py, line 194, in _request

File /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/twython/api.py, line 258, in request

Soon, I will be publishing the code and an Instructable on Twitter-scraping

Tweeted: RIP Peeraphan Palusuk, 68, Thai politician, Minister of Science and Technology (since 2013), MP for Yasothon (since 1985)Now go to Twitter and you should see your Tweet!Add TipAsk QuestionCommentDownloadStep 11: Improve on the Technique

note: these are garbage strings and wont work

Twitter will take you to a page for Application Settings (I blacked out my API key for security reason).

And substitute your own api key, api secret, access token and access token secret instead of using these.

accessTokenSecret = saklasooqjdoajfj8f9981mska01mdka09

This is another comprehensive crontab guide.

Add your phone number and verify the text with Twitter (GO 40404).

Click onUpdate Settings. If you get the error that you need to add your mobile phone to your account, then you probably skipped the Add mobile phone to account step of this Instructable.

Youll have to decide what kind of Twitterbot youll want to do. Quotebots are an easy way to start and the first 6 bots forThe Bot Collectivewere quotebots.

You can register for a free account with Yahoo, Gmail and many others.

api = Twython(apiKey,apiSecret,accessToken,accessTokenSecret)

python tweet_test.pyand youll see the tweetStr output. In the case ofJustDiedBot, it is this:

nano tweet_test.pyTry this script, only with your API key, API secret, Access token and Access token secret. Put a different string in than my RIP string this is for testing JustDiedBot.

Im using ssh to access to Raspberry Pi. My IP address for the SD card for this is 10.0.1.62. Your IP address may be different just change the address accordingly.

File /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/twython/api.py, line 268, in post

Modified the script to accept message from argument. Ill use it on my startup script to send me when it powers up, might also set it up for the ncid server, motion and temperature tweets 🙂

can some 1 help me out with this error:

This is pretty straightforward, but login to Twitter and make a Twitterbot handle.

Now you should have sent single tweet.

I would like to say thanks for providing this valuable stuff and this one is perfect post which told me the perfect way to control Raspberry Pi Twiiterbot.

File /usr/lib/python3.4/tkinter/__init__.py, line 1536, in __call__

return self.post(statuses/update, params=params)

retry_after=response.headers.get(X-Rate-Limit-Reset))

tweetStr = RIP Peeraphan Palusuk, 68, Thai politician, Minister of Science and Technology (since 2013), MP for Yasothon (since 1985)

Once I did that it took care of the issue and my script started working.

I made this, but I want to add a times tamp to the tweet it sends . What would be the best way to incorporate this in to the script?

Youll have to go through their steps of following several people or organizations and verification via email.

for 1st button press the tweet is uploaded succesfully but for the second time onwards i get this errror

Read the terms of agreement and agree to them and then OK the dialog

Every Twitter account requires an email address, and your Twitterbot will need to have a unique one.

File /home/pi/mirror2.py, line 27, in callback

ssh [email protected] you are running directly hooked into the monitor, you can skip this step.

Thanks for the instructable, got it running quick. I do get warnings InsecurePlatformWarning and SNIMissingWarning but the tweets get posted. installed various libraries/updates but still warns, but its working.
