This is my first attempt at writing something in we'll see how that goes.

COMPLETED! It was a good day today. I finally worked out all the kinks and have a functional NX2Twitter system. Follow the instructions below and make one too!

  • 1 × Samsung NX series camera Honestly this is optional as the script will work with just about anything. If you do use something else, make sure you update the code.
  • 1 × Twitter account You will also need to create an app within Twitter in order to get the necessary keys. I used this one:
  • 1 × Gmail account For your mail. Make sure you create a new folder titled 'NX2Twitter'
  • 1 × Raspberry Pi But anything that has an Internet connection and can run Python will do.

    Step 1

    Go to GitHub and check out the latest code into the directory of your choice onto your RPi:

    sudo git clone

    Make sure you have write privileges in the directory as you will be creating a config file and storing your Tweeted images within.

    Step 2

    Open your gmail account and create a new folder titled NX2Twitter. This is where all of the recieved messages from your camera will be stored. It also prevents re-Tweeting the same Tweet.

    Follow these directions to create a new Twitter Application and generate the necessary keys for Tweepy:
