twitter-text-python is a Tweet parser and formatter for Python.

It is based on twitter-text-java and passes all the unittests of twitter-text-conformance plus some additional ones.


>>> import ttp
>>> p = ttp.Parser()
>>> result = p.parse("@BonsaiDen Hey that's a great Tweet parser! #twp")
>>> result.reply
>>> result.users
>>> result.tags
>>> result.urls
>>> result.html
u'<a href="">@BonsaiDen</a> Hey that\'s a great Tweet Parser!
<a href="">#twp</a>'

If you need different HTML output just subclass and override the format_* methods.


The source is available on GitHub, to contribute to the project, fork it on GitHub and send a pull request. Everyone is welcome to make improvements to twp!
