Getting started with Twython

In this chapter, we will use Twython 3, which is a Python wrapper of the Twitter API 1.1. We can download the latest version of twython from pypi Python website, https://pypi.python.org/pypi/twython.

Then, we need to unzip and open the twython folder. Finally we install the twython module using the following command:

>>> python3 setup.py install

Or, we can also install Twython through easy_install using the following command.

>>> easy_install twython

We can find complete reference documentation of Twython at https://twython.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html.
