Problem with my application


I am using Tweepy for python to implement my bot. His behaviour consist in reading links from tweets where he has been mentioned, download those links and transform their content into pdf files. Then he reply to the user with a new link from with his pdf file and deletes all temporary files.

The problem is, when I write a tweet with a link and I mention my bot he starts the process and it takes to him like 30s - 1min to complete the job and reply with the new link, but Tweepy returns me this error: “This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can’t complete this action right now. Please try again later. Code: 226”, but all the work is done because if I click on the link of the result I can see the pdf file, It is just Tweepy doesnt allow the bot to tweet.

I have sent an email to Twitter support and they said this application is not restricted but they dont provide technical support. Any ideas?

For more information this is the source code of my bot:
Thank you,


This is not a Tweepy restriction but the Twitter API Spam protecting preventing you from posting it.


Then what I have to do? Because I’ve seen real spamming bots and they can post links…


There isn’t much you can do about, I am afraid. Maybe @andypiper knows what to do in this case?
