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

I've been stuck on this for awhile now can anyone help me out
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

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

Hi Charles, Your code seems to be correct, can you pinpoint where exactly are you stuck?

What version of Python are you using. Format strings (print(f"Oh no...")) are only allowed in Python 3.6 and higher. Try print("Oh no! Your message was to long {}".format(err)) and see if that helps. You might have an extra set of round brackets, too. Should it be {err} rather than ({err})?

Thanks, Leslie that help me out tremendously thanks again.
