Can anyone please explain this question ??

using_a_function.py
"""
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?  ")

For this challenge one function tweet() and two error types MessageTooLongError and CommunicationError have been imported for you:

from twitter import (
    tweet,
    MessageTooLongError,
    CommunicationError,

A message is defined to be set by user input.

Your task is to use the tweet() function to send the message input by the user. Hint: try calling the tweet function with message as an argument.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
