Welcome to the first edition of the Software Survey! This is a weekly showcase of software will teach you a little bit about possibly new library, and request your quick annotation of the software for criteria and taxonomy categories. This week we are showcasing ropensci/rtweet

If you want to jump right in, you can:

or learn more about it in the following sections.

What is rtweet?

rtweet is an R client to interact with the Twitter API. This means that you can easily “scrape” data from Twitter for a personal, academic, or other kind of project. Examples might include creating:

  • a map of tweets that meet some filter criteria
  • a network graph that shows users and followers
  • looking at frequencies of various kinds of tweets over time to make inferences

How do I cite it?

See this page for details on citation.

  year = {2019},
  note = {R package version 0.7.0},
  journal = {Journal of Open Source Software},

How do I contribute to the software survey?

or read more about annotation here. You can clone the software repository to do bulk annotation, or annotation any repository in the software database, We want annotation to be fun, straight-forward, and easy, so we will be showcasing one repository to annotate per week. If you’d like to request annotation of a particular repository (or addition to the software database) please don’t hesitate to open an issue or even a pull request.
