Python

I am attempting to crack/break into a program that is not updated/supported any longer. Does anyone know if that is possible with Python?

The program is TweetAdder. It was used to add tweets to a Twitter profile. That is all I want to use the program for. Other people used the program to mass follow/unfollow people and in doing that violated Twitter's API rules. I know there will be someone to tell me to use a different program but everything I have tried was nothing like TweetAdder and I miss it. I do not want to follow/unfollow people. I just want to have tweets posted to my profile.

I have downloaded Python but I honestly do not understand how to get it to open a program. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe you just need a new API key?

Question: Do you have programming experience?
If not, you might want to learn python first.

I was going to try and add my own Twitter API key. No I know nothing about any type of programming. I was just attempting to try and see if I could do it.

You would need the source code not the program. And then use the language it is written in. You could "hack" the program itself, but that is very very difficult, since you would need to manipulate the binary files. Helpfull could then be knowledge in machine code and maybe assembler. Python is useless in that case. In short: You won't be able to do it

Thanks dickloraine. I did not know that. I guess I will be searching Google for a source code.

And since it is python, there is no machine or assembler code.

If it isn't open-source, you can still extract compiled python bytecode in the worst-case scenario, and that isn't too hard to modify.

I don't know if the program is even written in python, I think the OP thought that you could use python to write code into any program.

You are correct dickloraine. I do not know if the program was written in Python. I am guessing. But then I have searched good and cannot find any source code so I guess the programmer did not release that at any time.

Huh, I see...

Not happening.
In order to modify a program you either need source code.
Or it must be written in a scripted language like python or perl which are their own source (and you freeze binaries with the actual source appended to a stub launcher).
Or written in Java which is easily decompiled (if you don't mind the typical obfuscation).
