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

Can anyone let me know where i am messing up?

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?  ")
CommunicationError = "An error occurred attempting to connect to Twitter. Please try again! "
MessageTooLongError = "Oh no! Your message was too long (...) "

except CommunicationError:
    print("An error occurred attempting to connect to Twitter.  Please try again! ")
except MessageTooLongError as err:
    print("Oh no! Your message was too long ({})".format(err))

You shouldn't be defining CommunicationError or MessageTooLongError, they are already imported for you, delete those lines of code.
