Python – API.statuses_lookup() in Tweepy
  • Last Updated : 05 Jun, 2020

Twitter is a popular social network where users share messages called tweets. Twitter allows us to mine the data of any user using Twitter API or Tweepy. 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.

API.statuses_lookup()

The statuses_lookup() method of the API class in Tweepy module is used to get the statuses specified by the status IDs, up to 100.

Syntax : API.statuses_lookup(parameters)

Parameters :

  • id_ : A list of Tweet IDs to fetch, up to 100
  • trim_user : A boolean indicating if user IDs should be provided, instead of complete user objects, the default value is False.

Returns : a list of objects of the class Status



Example 1 :




# 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)
  
# list of status IDs to be fetched 
id_ = [1266978261701210112, 1266735261012111360, 1266342841648898049]
  
# fetching the statuses
statuses = api.statuses_lookup(id_)
  
# printing the statuses
for status in statuses:
    print("The status " + str(status.id) + " is posted by " + status.user.screen_name)
    print("This status says : \n\n" + status.text, end = "\n\n")

Output :

for status in statuses:
    print(status.user.id)

Output :
