Tweeting with Python tweepy on the Raspberry Pi, from RasPi.TV:

In late October I started a series on Twitter and Python tweepy. Then it got pushed to one side by HDMIPi. But now I’ve managed to find some “recreational” time to play with tweepy a bit more.

So in this post, which is part 2, I’m going to show you how to post a tweet using a Python program on the Raspberry Pi.

Create Your Twitter App

Create a twitter app on your twitter account, as we did in part 1 here

Give Your App Permission to Write

Then make your app read/write. You won’t be able to tweet unless you give it permission to write. Newly created apps are read-only by default. Click on the settings tab and scroll down until you see this…

Give your app Read and Write permissions
…then make sure that Read and Write is selected. Then click “Update this twitter application’s settings“.

Install Tweepy (if you haven’t already)

Here’s how you install tweepy.

Now We’re Ready to Code

A lot of our code from last time can be re-used. But if you’ve created a new app, or changed the permissions on an old one, you might have to create new ‘Access tokens’….

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
