rtweet: Collecting Twitter Data

An implementation of calls designed to extract and organize Twitter data via Twitter's REST and stream APIs. Functions formulate GET and POST requests and convert response objects to more user friendly structures, e.g., data frames or lists. Specific consideration is given to functions designed to return tweets, friends, and followers.
