Can I make an account separate from my personal one to make a bot with?


#1

Whilst testing out the API I made a program with tweepy that tweeted out quotes from Dracula. I’d like to put these tweets on a different account, however as far as I can see there’s no way to make the tweets appear on an account other than my personal/developer twitter. Does anyone know how to make an app that can tweet to a different account other than making a new developer account?

Thanks in advance, and apologies if i’ve not tagged this correctly or its in the wrong place.

You need to use the sign-in with Twitter flow to get access tokens for another account. This is completely possible and a very common use case. You could use twurl to get the access tokens for your other account if you aren’t sure how else to implement the sign-in flow.
