Returns a collection of the 100 most recent retweets of a given status. NOTE: Twitter's API is currently limited to 100 or fewer retweeters.

get_retweets(status_id, n = 100, parse = TRUE, token = NULL, ...)

Arguments

status_id

required The numerical ID of the desired status.

n

optional Specifies the number of records to retrieve. Must be less than or equal to 100.

parse

Logical indicating whether to convert the response object into an R list. Defaults to TRUE.

token

Every user should have their own Oauth (Twitter API) token. By default token = NULL this function looks for the path to a saved Twitter token via environment variables (which is what `create_token()` sets up by default during initial token creation). For instruction on how to create a Twitter token see the tokens vignette, i.e., `vignettes("auth", "rtweet")` or see ?tokens.

...

Other arguments used as parameters in the query sent to Twitter's rest API, for example, trim_user = TRUE.

Value
