unicode – UnicodeEncodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t encode character u’\u2026′

When working with the Twitter API I recently ran into a Unicode error saying “can’t encode character u’\u2026′ “. Doing a little research it became apparent this was a know issue in Python converting between Unicode and ASCII. The way to deal with this is simply encode the unicode object before printing like this:

print resp_dict[‘text’].encode(‘utf-8’)




print post.text.encode(‘utf-8’)
