  • Last Updated : 18 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the number of lists a user has been added to. The listed_count attribute provides us with an integer denoting the number of public lists a user has been added to. Private lists are not counted.

In order to get the number number of public lists a user has been added to, we have to do the following :

  1. Identify the user ID or the screen name of the profile.
  2. Get the User object of the profile using the get_user() method with the user ID or the screen name.
  3. From this object, fetch the listed_count attribute present in it.

Example 1: Consider the following profile :

We will use the user ID to fetch the user. The user ID of the above mentioned profile is 57741058.






# 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 user
id = 57741058
  
# fetching the user
user = api.get_user(id)
  
# fetching the listed_count
listed_count = user.listed_count
  
print("The number of lists the user has been added to are : " + str(listed_count))

Output :

The number of lists the user has been added to are : 141

Example 2: Consider the following profile :

We will use the screen name to fetch the user. The screen name of the above mentioned profile is PracticeGfG.




# the screen name of the user
screen_name = "PracticeGfG"
  
# fetching the user
user = api.get_user(screen_name)
  
# fetching the listed_count
listed_count = user.listed_count
  
print("The number of lists the user has been added to are : " + str(listed_count))

Output :

The number of lists the user has been added to are : 6
