Twitter Bot for various Activities:

auth.set_access_token('','')

api=tweepy.API(auth)

# public_tweets=api.home_timeline()
# for tweettts in public_tweets:

Web Scraping Code:

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import pprint

res= requests.get('https://news.ycombinator.com/news')
res2=requests.get('https://news.ycombinator.com/news?p=2')
#print(res.text)
soup=BeautifulSoup(res.text,'html.parser')
soup2=BeautifulSoup(res.text,'html.parser')
#print(soup.body.contents)
#print(soup.find_all('div'))
links=soup.select('.title')
subtext=soup.select('.subtext')

links2=soup2.select('.title')
subtext2=soup2.select('.subtext')

mega_links=links+links2
mega_subtext=subtext+subtext2

def sort_stories_by_votes(hnlist):
    return sorted(hnlist, key=lambda k:k['votes'])

def create_custom_hn(links,subtext):
    hn=[]
    for indx,item in enumerate(links):
        title=item.getText()
        href=item.get('href', None)
        vote=subtext[indx].select('.score')
        if len(vote):
            points=int(vote[0].getText().replace('points',''))
            if points>50:
                hn.append({'title':title,'link': href, 'votes': points})
        return sort_stories_by_votes(hn)

pprint.pprint(create_custom_hn(mega_links,mega_subtext))
