Description

create_topwords(
  topic,
  country_codes = c(),
  date_min = "1900-01-01",

  with_retweets = FALSE,
  location_type = "tweet",

)

Arguments

topic

Character(1) containing the topic to use for the report

country_codes

Character vector containing the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 countries to plot, default: c()

date_min

date_max

Date indicating end of the reporting period, default: "2100-01-01"

with_retweets

Logical value indicating whether to include retweets in the time series, default: FALSE

location_type

Character(1) this parameter is currently being IGNORED since this report shows only tweet location and cannot showed user or both locations for performance reasons, default: 'tweet'

top

numeric(1) Parameter indicating the number of words to show, default: 25

Details

Produces a bar chat showing the occurrences of the most popular words in the collected tweets based on the provided parameters. For performance reasons on the aggregate_tweets function, this report only shows tweet location and ignores the location_type parameter

This report may be empty for combinations of countries and topics with very few tweets since for performance reasons, the calculation of top words is an approximation using chunks of 10.000 tweets.

This functions requires that search_loop and detect_loop have already been run successfully to show results.

Value

A named list containing two elements: 'chart' with the ggplot2 figure and 'data' containing the dataframe that was used to build the map.
