NOTICE: Based on current web trends and our own usage data, PubNub's Python Twisted SDK is deprecated as of May 1, 2019. Deprecation means we will no longer be updating the Python Twisted SDK but will continue to support users currently using it. Please feel free to use our other Python SDK offerings as they will continue to be supported and maintained. If you would like to use the Python Twisted SDK specifically, we would love to work with you on keeping this project alive!
The simplest way to get started is to install PubNub Python SDK via pypi:

Instantiate a new Pubnub instance. Only the
subscribe_key is mandatory. Also include
publish_key if you intend to publish from this instance, and the
secret_key if you wish to perform PAM administrative operations from this Python-Twisted V4 instance.
For security reasons you should only include the secret-key on a highly secured server. The secret-key is only required for granting rights using our Access Manager.
When you init with
