Twitter source label alerts the user about the app you are using to post the tweets and appears right next to the date and time stamp. You might have seen some people using completely different source labels on Twitter. If you are also interested to change it for your tweets, just follow the steps below.

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

Twitter Source Label comes from the app you are using like Twitter for iOS, Flamingo for Android, Twitter Web App, etc. In order to change the source label of your tweets, you need to create your own Twitter app. The process may take around 20 – 30 minutes, but once done, you can tweet as many times as possible.

How to Change the Twitter Source Label

The steps are easy to follow if you pay attention to the guide but a little lengthy. Once you are done with the initial setup, I promise subsequent posting of tweets won’t take more than a few moments.

1. To create your own Twitter app, navigate to the Twitter Developer website, and log in with your Twitter account by clicking on the sign-in button at the top right.

2. Then click on the Developer Portal option beside it.

7. Give your app a name; remember that this name will be shown on your tweets as a source label. You cannot name your app with an existing name like Twitter for Android or a name that is being used by another app. So give it a unique name and click Next at the bottom of the page.

13. Once the authentication is turned on, go to Keys and Tokens tab at the top. Here you will find API keys and API Tokens.

14. Just click on the Regenerate and Generate buttons respectively to create a fresh API key, API Key Secret, Access Token, and Access Token Secret. Copy and save these 4 keys aside as they will be useful later.

15. Now you have access to Twitter APIs. To create a Twitter app, you need to download Python. Open the Python website and download the python for your OS.

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

16. Open the downloaded Python file and install it just like you install any software. Once done, close the installer.

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

17. Now, open the file location where you installed python. If you haven’t changed the default installation location, you should find it here:

C:Users”YourUserName”AppDataLocalProgramsPythonPython38-32

Now open the Scripts folder and copy the complete location. It should now look like this. You can also replicate the same process on Mac.

C:Users"YourUserName"AppDataLocalProgramsPythonPython38-32Scripts

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

Tip: If you don’t see a folder called AppData in your user account, type AppData at the end in the location bar and it will open.

18. Open Command Prompt or Terminal on Mac and type cd, give space, and paste python file location you just copied, and press Enter.

cd C:Users"YourUserName"AppDataLocalProgramsPythonPython38-32Scripts

19. Now type the command below to install Tweepy and press Enter.

pip install tweepy

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

20. Once installed, close the Command Prompt. Now in the python scripts folder, right-click and click on New > Text document to create a new text document.

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

21. Now open that document and paste the code below inside and save the file.

import tweepy auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler("CONSUMER KEY HERE", "CONSUMER KEY SECRET HERE") auth.set_access_token("ACCESS TOKEN HERE", "ACCESS TOKEN SECRET HERE") api = tweepy.API(auth) tweet = input(" ") api.update_status(status =(tweet)) print ("Done!")

The above code will be useful to post tweets with text only. If you want to add images, gifs, or videos to your tweet, add the image line to your code and paste this code instead. Replace the IMAGE LOCATION HERE with the actual location of the image in your local storage.

import tweepy auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler("CONSUMER KEY HERE", "CONSUMER KEY SECRET HERE") auth.set_access_token("ACCESS TOKEN HERE", "ACCESS TOKEN SECRET HERE") api = tweepy.API(auth) tweet = input("") image="IMAGE LOCATION HERE" api.update_with_media(image, tweet) print ("Done!")

If you need to reply to a tweet, use the below code. Replace the TWEET ID HERE with the id of the tweet you want to reply to.

For example, in the below Twitter tweet URL, 1537326974519382017 is the tweet id.

import tweepy auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler("CONSUMER KEY HERE", "CONSUMER KEY SECRET HERE") auth.set_access_token("ACCESS TOKEN HERE", "ACCESS TOKEN SECRET HERE") api = tweepy.API(auth) tweet = input("") api.update_status(tweet, in_reply_to_status_id = TWEET ID HERE) print ("Done!")

22. Now replace the placeholders with your Twitter APIs. Remember that there are 4 APIs to change – API Key, API Secret Key, Access Token, and Access Token Secret. If you are adding an image or replying to another, don’t forget to change those placeholders too as mentioned above. Once done, it should look like this

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

23. Now save the file and name it something that you will remember, but update the Save as type field to All files and add “.py” at the end of the file name to save it as a python file and click Save. Look at the screenshot below for more clarity.

How to Change the Twitter Source Label, Internet

24. Now open that Py file you just created. That’s it. You can now use this to tweet or reply to a tweet in the format we discussed above. You can use this py file to tweet as many times as you want.

It is a pretty cool hack but it is more than that. If you are creative, you can use it to promote your brand, product, and whatnot. The initial setup process is lengthy but once you have the py file ready and functioning, you just need to update a few lines of code with data like tweet id and you are good to go. Try it a couple of times and you will get the hang of it.
