Retrieving Twitter Engagements in R

Bryan Shalloway continues looking at Twitter data:

This is a follow-up to a short post I wrote on R Access to Twitter’s v2 API. In this post I’ll walk through a few more examples of pulling data from twitter using a mix of Twitter’s v2 API as well as the {rtweet} package.

I’ll pull all Twitter users that I (brshallo) have recently been engaged by (e.g. they like my tweet) or engaged with (e.g. I like their tweet). I’ll lean towards using {rtweet} but will use {httr} in cases where it’s more convenient to use Twitter’s v2 API.
