I am using the latest version of Anaconda Navigator 2.10 and jupyter Notebook 6.4.4.

I have regenerated API tokens. How do should I fix this?

I am getting the exact error reported above.

I had to upgrade my version of Anaconda and then installed tweepy version 4.1.0 and from there the following command is not working for me:

tweepy.Cursor(, q=ht, since=since_date_str).items()

Any idea how to solve it? do I have to go back to a previous version of tweepy? if so, which version?
