Get Twitter trends data.

Description

Get Twitter trends data.

Usage

get_trends(
  woeid = 1,
  lat = NULL,
  lng = NULL,
  exclude_hashtags = FALSE,
  token = NULL,
  parse = TRUE
)

Arguments

woeid

Numeric, WOEID (Yahoo! Where On Earth ID) or character string of desired town or country. Users may also supply latitude and longitude coordinates to fetch the closest available trends data given the provided location. Latitude/longitude coordinates should be provided as WOEID value consisting of 2 numeric values or via one latitude value and one longitude value (to the appropriately named parameters). To browse all available trend places, see trends_available()

lat

Optional alternative to WOEID. Numeric, latitude in degrees. If two coordinates are provided for WOEID, this function will coerce the first value to latitude.

lng

Optional alternative to WOEID. Numeric, longitude in degrees. If two coordinates are provided for WOEID, this function will coerce the second value to longitude.

exclude_hashtags

Logical, indicating whether or not to exclude hashtags. Defaults to FALSE–meaning, hashtags are included in returned trends.

token

Expert use only. Use this to override authentication for a single API call. In most cases you are better off changing the default for all calls. See auth_as() for details.

parse

If TRUE, the default, returns a tidy data frame. Use FALSE to return the "raw" list corresponding to the JSON returned from the Twitter API.

Value

Tibble data frame of trends data for a given geographical area.
