Defines functions lists_members

Documented in lists_members

#' Get Twitter list members (users on a given list).
#'
#' @param list_id required The numerical id of the list.
#' @param slug required You can identify a list by its slug instead of
#'   its numerical id. If you decide to do so, note that you'll also
#'   have to specify the list owner using the owner_id or
#'   owner_user parameters.
#' @param owner_user optional The screen name or user ID of the user
#'   who owns the list being requested by a slug.
#' @param n Specifies the number of results to return
#'   per page (see cursor below). For `list_memberships()`, the default and
#'   max is 200 per page. Twitter technically allows up to 1,000 per page,
#'   but above 200 frequently results in an over capacity error.
#'   For `lists_members()`, the default, and max number
#'   of users per list, is 5,000.
#' @param cursor optional Breaks the results into pages. Provide a
#'   value of -1 to begin paging. Provide values as returned in the
#'   response body's next_cursor and previous_cursor attributes to
#'   page back and forth in the list.
#' @param parse Logical indicating whether to convert the response object into
#'   an R list. Defaults to TRUE.
#' @param token Every user should have their own Oauth (Twitter API) token. By
#'   default \code{token = NULL} this function looks for the path to a saved
#'   Twitter token via environment variables (which is what `create_token()`
#'   sets up by default during initial token creation). For instruction on how
#'   to create a Twitter token see the tokens vignette, i.e.,
#'   `vignettes("auth", "rtweet")` or see \code{?tokens}.
#' @param ... Other arguments used as parameters in query composition.
#' @return Either a nested list (if parsed) or an HTTP response object.
