Here are some code snippets to help you out with using Tweepy. Feel free to contribute your own snippets or improve the ones here!
auth = tweepy.BasicAuthHandler("username", "password") api = tweepy.API(auth)
auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler("consumer_key", "consumer_secret") # Redirect user to Twitter to authorize redirect_user(auth.get_authorization_url()) # Get access token auth.get_access_token("verifier_value") # Construct the API instance api = tweepy.API(auth)
# Iterate through all of the authenticated user's friends for friend in tweepy.Cursor(api.friends).items(): # Process the friend here process_friend(friend) # Iterate through the first 200 statuses in the friends timeline for status in tweepy.Cursor(api.friends_timeline).items(200): # Process the status here process_status(status)
This snippet will follow every follower of the authenticated user.
for follower in tweepy.Cursor(api.followers).items(): follower.follow()
