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

Multiple Errors in try block

I'm not sure why the code isn't working. Do you need to raise?

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?  ")
# Your code here
try:
    tweet(message)
except CommunicationError:
    print("An error occurred attempting to connect to Twitter. Please try again!")
except MessageTooLongError:
    print("Oh no! Your message was too long (...)")

The instructions state: Where ... is the text from the exception. Instead of printing ... you are to print the exception text.

Thank you. I figured out what to do.
