Be sure to keep a look out for these exceptions and handle them properly.
If Twitter returns an error response you may wish to retry the request
again. To help make this easier Tweepy allows you to configure it to do
this for you automatically when such error codes are returned.
Here is an example of performing a request and retrying if it fails.
We will tell Tweepy to only attempt up to 5 retries and wait 5 seconds
between each attempt.
tweepy.api.friends_timeline(retry_count=5, retry_delay=5)
except tweepy.TweepError, e:
# If all 5 attempts fail a TweepError will be thrown
print 'Failed to get timeline: %s' % e
By default Tweepy will only retry when a status code of 500, 502, or 503
is returned by Twitter. All other codes result in an immediate TweepError.
If we do not provide a retry_delay Tweepy by default does not wait between requests.
Let's say we want to retry on status code responses of 400 only.
Here is how we do that...
tweepy.api.user_timeline('twitter', retry_count=3, retry_delay=5, retry_errors=[400])
except tweepy.TweepError, e:
print 'Failed to get timeline: %s' % e
