Hi Guys,

I am trying to install tweepy module in my Linux system, but it is showing me the below error.

$ pip install tweepy
Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/Users/user_name/anaconda3/bin/pip", line 6,
    in <module> from pip._internal.cli.main import main
    File "/Users/user_name/anaconda3/lib/python3.6/site-
    packages/pip/_internal/cli/", line 10, in <module>
    from pip._internal.cli.autocompletion import autocomplete
    from pip._vendor import appdirs as _appdirs
      ImportError: cannot import name 'appdirs'

How can I solve this error?
