When I started learning R, I also needed to learn how to collect Twitter data and map it for research purposes. Despite the wealth of information on the internet about this topic, I found it difficult to understand what was involved in collecting and mapping Twitter data. Not only was I was a novice to R, but I was also unfamiliar with the technical terms in the various tutorials. Despite these barriers, I was successful! In this tutorial, I will break down how to collect Twitter data and display it on a map in a way that even novice coders can understand.
