Python Retweet Bot

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.

How to start:

  • Depends on http://tweepy.github.com/ (pip install tweepy)
  • Copy 'config.sample' to 'config'
  • Define your hashtag or search query
  • Add your Twitter app credentials
  • (Tune some other options if you like)
  • $ python retweet.py
  • Add this call to your crontab (or something similar) to retweet all new tweets regularly
You can’t perform that action at this time.
