Day 10: Exploring #FolkloreThursday using rtweet

The Twitter API, for instance, allows you some (limited) access to tweets, and in the past I have played around with the twitteR package to set up an R based twitter client. The rtweet package seems to be a slightly more recent version of the same thing?
