I'm not sure what they are asking - it looks like they already wrote the code - Ugh!

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,

message = input("What would you like to tweet?  ")

Hey Anthony Costanza!

The code written above is importing several functions from another file. The function is called tweet() and it takes in an argument in the parenthesis. For the first part, it is asking you to call the function and pass in the message variable as an argument.

A function call looks like this:

function_name(argument)

Hope this helps!
