Adventures with rtweet and tidytext

We have always suspected it: Twitter and #rstats go hand in hand. In this tutorial we will do some web-scraping with the rtweet package and look at various fun ways to analyse this data taking advantage of the tidytext package. Join this tutorial if, for example, you want to learn how to make a colourful word cloud out of everything you ever tweeted or if you want to plot what people have been saying about the Great British Bake Off over time.
