The data will be tweets extracted from the user. The first thing to do is get the consumer key, consumer secret, access key and access secret from twitter developer available easily for each user. These keys will help the API for authentication.

The show_list_member() method of the API class in Tweepy module is used to check if a specified user is the member of a specified list.

Syntax : API.show_list_member(parameters)

Parameters :

  • list_id : ID of the list.
  • slug : slug of the list.
  • user_id : ID of the user to be checked in the list.
  • screen_name : screen name of the user to be checked in the list.
  • owner_id : ID of the owner of the list.
  • owner_screen_name : screen name of the owner of the list.

Returns : an object of class User



Example 1 : When the user is the member of the list.




# import the module
import tweepy
  
# assign the values accordingly
consumer_key = ""
consumer_secret = ""
access_token = ""
access_token_secret = ""
  
# authorization of consumer key and consumer secret
auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler(consumer_key, consumer_secret)
  
# set access to user's access key and access secret 
auth.set_access_token(access_token, access_token_secret)
  
# calling the api 
api = tweepy.API(auth)
  
# the ID of the list
list_id = 
  
# the user to be checked in the list
screen_name = "geeksforgeeks"
  
# checking the user is present in the list or not
api.show_list_member(list_id = list_id, screen_name = screen_name)
  
# if there is no exception then the user is present
print("The user " + screen_name + " is present in the list.")

Output :

api.show_list_member(list_id = list_id, screen_name = screen_name)
  
# if there is no exception then the user is present
print("The user " + screen_name + " is present in the list.")
