Abstract

In January, 2021, Twitter announced the “Academic Research Product Track.” This provides academic researchers with greatly expanded access to Twitter data. Existing R packages for querying the Twitter API, such as the popular rtweet package (Kearney, 2019), are yet to introduce functionality to allow users to connect to the new v2 API endpoints with Academic Research Product Track credentials. The academictwitteR package (Barrie & Ho, 2021) is built with academic research in mind. It encourages efficient and responsible storage of data,given the likely large amounts of data being collected, as well as a number of shortcut and query building functions to access new v2 API endpoints.
