Using the Twitter API

Understanding Twitter Results I

We've done a lot of work, but we still haven't seen any data from Twitter. Let's fix that!

The GetUserTimeline() method returns will return data from Twitter in the form of a Python list, so we can use a for loop to print out the tweets from the data we retrieved.

For example:

statuses = twitter_api.GetUserTimeline(screen_name=handle, count=200, include_rts=False) for status in statuses: print status
