            How to solve AttributeError: 'Client' object has no attribute 'apply_auth'?
            Asked 2022-Apr-08 at 20:48

            I'm having trouble with new and old documentation of tweepy, it seems that everything that worked in previous versions, but there are a lot of changes, I have a problem making it work right now. Any ideas why I have this error?



            Answered 2022-Apr-08 at 18:25

            First of all, you should IMMEDIATELY refresh all your personnal and applications tokens.

            Anyone can access the Twitter API on your behalf, it's like sharing your password publicly.

            About your question: the tweepy.Client is used to access the version 2 of the Twitter API, while the tweepy.API is used to access the version 1.1 of the Twitter api.

            So you can use them side by side, but they can not be mixed that way.

            A quick fix could be:



            Get number of followers of a twitter account within a specified period
            Asked 2022-Apr-05 at 06:37

            I have the user ids of various twitter accounts. Now I need to find number of followers those users has within a specified time period. How can i do that. I have been using tweepy. There is a method to find the total number of followers of a user. But there is no method to find the total number of followers within a specified time interval.

            i used the following code

            bearer_token= 'xxx'

            client = tweepy.Client(bearer_token)

            res = client.get_users_followers(user_id)

            This program return the total number of followers a user has till this date. I need to retrieve total number of followers a user has within a time period



            Answered 2022-Apr-05 at 06:37

            Your question has the answer in itself.
            "There is no method to find the total number of followers within a specified time interval". That is correct, as you can see by the API documentation as well.
            Here's another thread that specifies that this isn't possible for your use case.

            From the error message:

            453 - You currently have Essential access which includes access to Twitter API v2 endpoints only.

            So, you are only allowed to use v2 endpoints, but api.home_timeline() is a v1.1 API, so the v2 endpoint for reading the timeline is:



            How do i reply to a certain tweet using Tweepy?
            Asked 2022-Mar-13 at 15:26

            I am trying to reply to create a code to reply to simply reply to a (given) tweet, i only know that api.update_status tweets but not how to reply to one, i did some researches but all are outdated and "in_reply_to_status_id" doesn't seem to work anymore

            api = tweepy.API(auth)



            Answered 2022-Mar-13 at 15:26

            In order to reply to a tweet using the Twitter API v2, you need to use the in_reply_to_tweet_id. This works as follows.



            TypeError: Consumer key must be string or bytes, not NoneType when authentication
            Asked 2022-Mar-08 at 12:51

            Planning to use variables to authorize tweepy with Twitter's API, but it shows the following:
            TypeError: Consumer key must be string or bytes, not NoneType when authentication

            Code below:



            Answered 2022-Mar-08 at 12:42

            Perhaps a typo problem? NoneType is caused because one of the methods is receiving None, which is returned by get() if the environment variable does not exist.

            Check if your environment variables' names are correct.

            If your problem persists please indicate in which line the error occurs.



            Tweepy does not return url media field while using Twitter API v2 methods
            Asked 2022-Feb-28 at 22:15

            I am requesting Twitter API v2 to get the Tweet's details and using a Client object which is required to authenticate.



            Answered 2022-Feb-28 at 22:11

            If you are simply printing the objects and looking at that output, the string representations of API v2 models/objects only include the default attributes that are guaranteed to exist.

            The objects themselves still include the relevant data, which you can access as attributes or by key, like a dictionary.

            Answered 2022-Feb-20 at 15:23

            It appears message is reused and you keep doing attach(payload).

            Call set_content() instead.

            If you look at the modules, the correct way to reference StreamListener is tweepy.streaming.StreamListener, not tweepy.StreamListener.



            Timespan for Elevated Access to Historical Twitter Data
            Asked 2022-Feb-22 at 12:25

            I have a developer account as an academic and my profile page on twitter has Elevated on top of it, but when I use Tweepy to access the tweets, it only scrapes tweets from 7 days ago. How can I extend my access up to 2006?

            This is my code:



            Answered 2022-Feb-22 at 12:25

            The Search All endpoint is available in Twitter API v2, which is represented by the tweepy.Client object (you are using tweepy.api).

            The most important thing is that you require Academic research access from Twitter. Elevated access grants addition request volume, and access to the v1.1 APIs on top of v2 (Essential) access, but you will need an account and Project with Academic access to call the endpoint. There's a process to apply for that in the Twitter Developer Portal.



            Twitter API throws error : 'API' object has no attribute 'search'
            Asked 2022-Feb-08 at 10:37

            The following code I wrote was intended to retweet tweets with #programming. But, anything I run the code I get an error "search" object is not an attribute of the Twitter API. The error is posted below the code. Thanks



            Answered 2022-Feb-08 at 10:37

            The Cursor expects a regular api method, but looking at its reference doc there is no search only, but :

            • search_30_day
            • search_full_archive
            • search_tweets
            • search_users
            • search_geo

            Maybe you meant one of them ?
