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



On the next line, print out the statuses using a for loop. Use status as the iterator. Use the example above to help you.
