This time it’s the Australian Bioinformatics & Computational Biology Society Conference 2017, including the COMBINE symposium. Looks like a good time was had by all in Adelaide.
A couple of quirks this time around. First, the rtweet package went through a brief phase of returning lists instead of nice data frames. I hope that’s been discarded as a bad idea :) There also seem to be additional columns, new column names and list-columns in the output from the latest
search_tweets(), so there goes my previous code…
With thanks to Andrew Lonsdale for clearing up my confusion and pointing me to Twitter extended mode, the answer is “yes, somewhat”. Plenty of tweets are still hitting the 140 limit though: time to update those clients?
