python external function practice
Help Please...What am I missing??
""" 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 tweet(message) try: tweet("message") except CommunicationError: print("An error occurred attempting to connect to Twitter. Please try again!")

You are very close. When working on Task 2, you need to incorporate your solution from Task 1. That is, the standalone
tweet(message) from Task 1 should be inside the
try statement of Task 2. It's looks like you did have a tweet inside of the
try, but it is using the argument string "message* instead of the variable
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
