where am getting wrong please help

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(massage)
    except communicationError:
        print("an error occured attempting to connect to Twiter.Please try again!")
    except massageTooLongError as err :
        print("Oh no!Your massage was too long ({})".format(err))

Looks like you understood the basic goal of the challenge. Let's build on that.

Python depends on exact indentation to nest code-blocks. In both cases of the "except" it needs to be lined up with the "try" block.

Python is also case sensitive and spelling sensitive. I marked the lines below where I corrected that.

Good luck with Python.

try :
    tweet(message) # corrected typing error
except CommunicationError: # corrected indentation and case error
    print("an error occurred attempting to connect to Twiter. Please try again!")
except MessageTooLongError as err : # corrected indentation error, case error, and typo
    print("Oh no! Your message was too long ({})".format(err))
