How to reply to Twitter to Tweet?

Hi Everyone, I am trying to auto-comment to a tweet. My difficulty is that there is NO reply module to a twitter tweet. There is only a create a tweet module, which is useless for my purpose. Anyone can help?

Hi there,

Since there is not an inbuilt module in the Twitter app for the purpose of creating a reply or even a module for making an API call, I would suggest that you use the HTTP module in order to connect with the Twitter API endpoint.

Set up your Twitter API credentials

consumer_key = 'your_consumer_key'
consumer_secret = 'your_consumer_secret'
access_token = 'your_access_token'
access_token_secret = 'your_access_token_secret'

# Authenticate with the Twitter API
auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler(consumer_key, consumer_secret)
auth.set_access_token(access_token, access_token_secret)
api = tweepy.API(auth)

# Tweet reply
tweet_id_to_reply_to = 'tweet_id_to_reply_to'
reply_text = 'Your reply text here.'

api.update_status(status=reply_text, in_reply_to_status_id=tweet_id_to_reply_to)

Hope this helps!


Hi, Thanks for this step-by-step process on how to reply using the HTTP module. I’m also trying to set up an automation where I can auto reply to tweets in a twitter list using chatgpt. Please how can I achieve this?

Hi @Amadio_Gabriel I am trying to get my bookmarked tweets as a trigger.
I understand I have to do it via a “HTTP make a request” module, but I need to get authenticated first.
Your “Set up your Twitter API credentials” guide, has to be used with which http module ? Could you provide a example screenshot?
Thx :slight_smile:

Continuing the discussion from Creating a Twitter Thread:

Hi, could you be more specific about those connections? Which module did you use? Can you share some screenshot examples?

(Make bot closes topics too quick)

Hello There,

It has to be “HTTP/Make a auth request 2.0” since Twitter accept OAuth-based connections.

Also please note you need to decompose the OAuth flow into separate HTTP requests. It works for all the Twitter v2 API endpoints that require OAuth 2 with PKCE. Important is when generating the access token to include offline scope.



Thanks for the info.
I am not used to work with APIs. I don’t really know how I should configure everything. Would you have a complete configuration example for authentication and reply on twitter?

Hi, being an absolute beginner, I am stuck at the authentication step with the error: Accounts verifyfailed. Below a screenshot. Client ID & Secret come from Twitter Dev portal.

@Amadio_Gabriel What’s your take on what I do wrong?
