  • Last Updated : 21 Jun, 2020

In Reddit, a redditor is the term given to a user. Here we will see how to check whether a redditor is an employee of Reddit or not. We will be using the is_employee attribute of the Redditor class to check whether a redditor is an employee of Reddit or not.

# initialize with appropriate values
client_id = ""
client_secret = ""
username = ""
password = ""
user_agent = ""
  
# creating an authorized reddit instance
reddit = praw.Reddit(client_id = client_id, 
                     client_secret = client_secret, 
                     username = username, 
                     password = password,
                     user_agent = user_agent) 
  
# the name of the redditor
redditor_name = "spez"
  
# instantiating the Redditor class
redditor = reddit.redditor(redditor_name)
  
print("Is " + redditor_name + " an employee of Reddit? : " +
      str(redditor.is_employee))
