Usage

get_favorites(user, n = 3000, since_id = NULL, max_id = NULL,
  parse = TRUE, clean_tweets = FALSE, as_double = FALSE, token = NULL)

Arguments

user

Screen name or user id of target user.

n

Specifies the number of records to retrieve. Must be less than or equal to 200; defaults to 3000, which is the max number of favorites returned per token. Due to suspended or deleted content, this function may return fewer tweets than the desired (n) number.

since_id

Returns results with an status_id greater than (that is, more recent than) the specified status_id. There are limits to the number of tweets returned by the REST API. If the limit is hit, since_id is adjusted (by Twitter) to the oldest ID available.

max_id

Returns results with status_id less (older) than or equal to (if hit limit) the specified status_id.

parse

Logical, indicating whether to return parsed vector or nested list (fromJSON) object. By default, parse = TRUE saves you the time [and frustrations] associated with disentangling the Twitter API return objects.

clean_tweets

logical indicating whether to remove non-ASCII characters in text of tweets. defaults to FALSE.

as_double

logical indicating whether to handle ID variables as double (numeric) class. By default, this is set to FALSE, meaning ID variables are treated as character vectors. Setting this to TRUE can provide performance (speed and memory) boost but can also lead to issues when printing and saving, depending on the format.

token

OAuth token. By default token = NULL fetches a non-exhausted token from an environment variable. Find instructions on how to create tokens and setup an environment variable in the tokens vignette (in r, send ?tokens to console).

Value

Tweets data frame.
