Description

rtweet provides users a range of functions designed to extract data from Twitter's REST and streaming APIs.

It has three main goals:

  • Compose and request calls to Twitter's API following (the best practices for writing an API package) [https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/httr/vignettes/api-packages.html].

  • Provide functions that can acccept multiple personal access tokens.

  • Make extracting data from Twitter seem a little easier.
