Prerequisites

  • TwitterAPI
  • Python 2.7

Configuration

Open up config.json and make the values correspond to your Twitter API credentials.

Change your Twitter Account settings to allow dm's from anybody.

Installation

1: Find and Open up Command Prompt

2: In Command Prompt Run: pip install TwitterAPI

Errors: Search Google. Typically it's about python not being installed correctly.
