The ThingTweet action

You need to automatically send tweets from your Raspberry Pi. Today I show you, How to Sending Tweets Using ThingSpeak with Raspberry Pi. for example, to irritate people by telling them the temperature of your CPU.


≡ Components Required  :


Here is a list of the hardware we suggest for this tutorial on ThingSpeak Tweets Raspberry Pi

  1. Raspberry pi
  2.  Micro SD Card
  3. Ethernet cable
  4. Power Supply

This book will help you to gain more knowledge of Raspberry pi  Software and Hardware Problems and Solutions

≡ Create  ThingSpek Account :


ThingSpeak is similar to Raspberry Pi Email send with IFTTT but is pointed squarely at IoT projects. It allows you to create channels that can store and retrieve data using web requests, and also contains a number of activitiesincluding ThingTweet, which provides web services wrapper around Twitter. This is often less demanding to utilize than the Twitter API, which needs you to register your application with Twitter.

≡ Preparing your Raspberry Pi for this project:


In this sectionwe’ll be showing you how to  Raspberry Pi for this project. if you First-time run project you have to need to update your raspberry pi You’ll do this by running the following commands.
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Now you have to need library install for this project You’ll do this by running the following commands. 

pip install urllib3

Or
sudo apt-get install urllib2

≡ Code ThingSpeak Tweets Raspberry Pi:


The Python program to ThingSpeak Tweets Raspberry Pi

import time, os, urllib, urllib2

MAX_TEMP = 37.0
MIN_T_BETWEEN_WARNINGS = 60 # Minutes

BASE_URL = 'https://api.thingspeak.com/apps/thingtweet/1/statuses/update/'
KEY = '68LZC4LBMXLMMYDY'

def send_notification(temp):
    status = 'Hello Raspberry Pi getting hot. CPU temp=' + temp
    data = urllib.urlencode({'api_key' : KEY, 'status': status})
    response = urllib2.urlopen(url=BASE_URL, data=data)
    print(response.read())

def cpu_temp():
    dev = os.popen('/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp')
    cpu_temp = dev.read()[5:-3]
    return cpu_temp
    
while True:
    temp = cpu_temp()
    print("CPU Temp (C): " + str(temp))
    if temp > MAX_TEMP:
        print("CPU TOO HOT!")
        send_notification(temp)
        print("No more notifications for: " + str(MIN_T_BETWEEN_WARNINGS) + 
" mins")
        time.sleep(MIN_T_BETWEEN_WARNINGS * 60)
    time.sleep(1)

Before running the program, you’ll have to get an get to the key for the Maker Action channel by selecting Channels, and after that searching for Maker. Paste the key into thingtweetl.py on the line that begins KEY= and then run the program using the screenshot below:
