Get Twitter list members (users on a given list).

Get Twitter list memberships (lists containing a given user)

lists_members(list_id = NULL, slug = NULL, owner_user = NULL,
  n = 5000, cursor = "-1", token = NULL, parse = TRUE, ...)

lists_memberships(user = NULL, n = 200, cursor = "-1",
  filter_to_owned_lists = FALSE, token = NULL, parse = TRUE,
  previous_cursor = NULL)

Arguments

list_id

required The numerical id of the list.

slug

required You can identify a list by its slug instead of its numerical id. If you decide to do so, note that you'll also have to specify the list owner using the owner_id or owner_user parameters.

owner_user

optional The screen name or user ID of the user who owns the list being requested by a slug.

n

Specifies the number of results to return per page (see cursor below). For `list_memberships()`, the default and max is 200 per page. Twitter technically allows up to 1,000 per page, but above 200 frequently results in an over capacity error. For `lists_members()`, the default, and max number of users per list, is 5,000.

cursor

optional Breaks the results into pages. Provide a value of -1 to begin paging. Provide values as returned in the response body's next_cursor and previous_cursor attributes to page back and forth in the list.

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.

parse

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

...

Other arguments used as parameters in query composition.

user

The user id or screen_name of the user for whom to return results for.

filter_to_owned_lists

When set to true . t or 1 , will return just lists the authenticating user owns, and the user represented by user_id or screen_name is a member of.

previous_cursor

If you wish to use previous cursor instead of next, input value here to override next cursor.

Value

Either a nested list (if parsed) or an HTTP response object.

Details

Due to deleted or removed lists, the returned number of memberships is often less than the provided n value. This is a reflection of the API and not a unique quirk of rtweet.
