In this article, we will learn how to create a Twitter bot using a module called simpletwitter

  1. Install the simpletwitter module

pip install simpletwitter

Yes we have successfully installed the module

Now get into the code,

from simpletwitter import SimpleTwitter

Create an instance for the class SimpleTwitter

email = "Twitter_User_Email_Address"

password = "Twitter_Password"

user_name = "Abipravi1" 
#here i have entered my twitter username but you need to enter your's in this case

no_of_tweets = 10 
#this value is necessary how many no of tweets you want to perform operation

bot = SimpleTwitter(email, password, no_of_tweets, user_name)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That's all we set up all the necessary requirements, Now let us go and perform the Twitter operations…..

hashtags = ['#abipravi', #pythonmodule', '#twitter_bot']
tweetmessage = "My first tweet by simple twitter"

# unlike the liked tweet
