Python Retweet Bot

alt text

This script retweets all Tweets containing your search term. To limit Twitter requests a savepoint file marks Tweets found before. It's Twitter API v1.1 ready.


  • Tweepy

pip install tweepy

  • Or alternatively

pip install -r requirements.txt

How to start:

  • Define your hashtag or search query in the config file
  • Define the number of Retweets at a time (This avoids overloading -Limit is 180 RT/ 15 mins)
  • Add your Twitter app credentials in the config file
  • (Tune some other options if you like)
  • $ python
  • Add this call to your crontab(unix)/task scheduler(windows) (or something similar) to retweet all new tweets regularly
