Fetching Tweets using R

I introduce how Tweets (posts on Twitter) can be fetched using R Programming using this series of videos.

Fetching Tweets using R is easy using rtweet library.

You will realise that it is rather simple when you know how this is done. However, once the data is fetched from Twitter, a whole world of analysis becomes possible. However, it is required to clean the data appropriately before analysis can be ensued.

One needs to know R Programming before taking advantage of these Videos. To learn basics of R Programming, undertake the course “Learning R through an example“.

One important application of analysis of data fetched from Twitter is to conduct Emotion Analysis. To learn more about Emotion Analysis, undertake the course “Learning Application of R: Part 1 of 3 (Emotion Analysis)“.

The videos include demonstration of Chidiya where these concepts have been applied to create a Data Product.
