AssertionError: False is not true : Make sure you catch the CommunicationError in a try except block
I cannot for the life of me figure out why I can't get this code right. Help please!
""" 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 ( tweet, MessageTooLongError, CommunicationError, ) message = input("What would you like to tweet? ") tweet(message) # This is from Task 1 - good job! try: tweet("message") # You should still be using your successful code from the previous task here. except CommunicationError: print("An error occurred attempting to connect to Twitter. Please try again!")

You're really close. All you need to do is remove the extra tweet() of the message.
message = input("What would you like to tweet? ") try: tweet(message) # tweet from the previous task goes in the TRY block. except CommunicationError: print("An error occurred attempting to connect to Twitter. Please try again!")
That was it! Thank you so much for your help.
