Python Practice Creating and Using Functions in Python Practice Functions Use an External Function

This is importing a function named `tweet` from a file
    that we unfortunately don't have access to change.

You use it like so:
>>> tweet("Hello this is my tweet")

If the function cannot connect to Twitter,
    the function will raise a `CommunicationError`
If the message is too long,
    the function will raise a `MessageTooLongError`
from twitter import (

message = input("What would you like to tweet?  ")
# Your code here
def tweet(message):
    message = ("Hello this is my tweet")

You do not have to recreate a tweet function. As the instructs states "The code in the using_a_function.py is making use of an external function named tweet.". Use this function instead. So the first part can be solved with a simple tweet(message).

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!
