Readme

Updated scripts for developing networks of users in Twitter. It requires the following info:

require("devtools")
devtools::install_github("mkearney/rtweet")

List of scripts

  • tw_accounts.R. Retrieves list of twitter users who follow and are followed by a given user.
  • tw_matrix.R. Still under development. Given a set of twitter accounts it creates a matrix of relations depending on who follows who.

Old script

  • friendsnet(user): Search through list of people User A follows and indicate relation between them. Due to rate limit restrictions this function takes some time. Max rate limit is 15 for every 15 min.

This function uses the twitteR package available in CRAN and developed by Jeff Gentry. This library uses the REST API of Twitter. You are also required authentication via OAuth.
