In this lesson, our bot will tweet hello to the Twitter world! We'll do this by using Twit's POST method to post our status to the statuses/update endpoint.
00:01 First, we'll need the twit library. Then we'll make our bot by giving it all of our consumer keys and access tokens, and a timeout for HTTP requests.
00:20 To tweet, the syntax is bot.post. We're going to post to statuses/update with a status which is our string we want to tweet, and then a callback.
01:03 If we run this, we can see that our tweet has been tweeted.
