Defines functions lists_users

Documented in lists_users

#' Get all lists a specified user subscribes to, including their own.
#'
#' @param user The ID of the user or screen name for whom to return results.
#' @param reverse optional Set this to true if you would like owned lists
#'   to be returned first. See description above for information on
#'   how this parameter works.
#' @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 parse Logical indicating whether to convert the response object into
#'   an R list. Defaults to TRUE.
#' @return data
#' @examples
#' \dontrun{
#'
#' ## get lists subsribed to by Nate Silver
#' lists_users("NateSilver538")
#'
#' }
#'
#' @family lists
#' @export
