In this article we will see how we can get the ID of a status. Each status or tweet has a unique ID. The id attribute of the Status object provides us with the ID of the status/tweet. Identifying the ID in the GUI : In the above mentioned status, the ID can be found in the URL, the ID here is : 1271031982189879297
In order to get the ID of a status, we have to do the following :
  1. Identify the status ID of the status from the GUI.
  2. Get the Status object of the status using the get_status() method with the status ID.
  3. From this object, fetch the id attribute present in it.
Example 1 : Consider the following status : We will use the status ID to fetch the status. The status ID of the above mentioned status is 1272771459249844224.
# 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 status
id = 1272771459249844224
  
# fetching the status
status = api.get_status(id)
  
# fetching the id attribute
id = status.id 
  
print("The ID of the status is : " + str(id))

                    
Output :
The ID of the status is : 1272771459249844224
Example 2 : Consider the following status : We will use the status ID to fetch the status. The status ID of the above mentioned status is 1272479136133627905.
# the ID of the status
id = 1272479136133627905
  
# fetching the status
status = api.get_status(id)
  
# fetching the id attribute
id = status.id 
  
print("The ID of the status is : " + str(id))

                    
Output :
The ID of the status is : 1272479136133627905
