New R Package: storywranglr v0.2.0

By Christopher Belanger August 1, 2021

We’re pleased to announce that version 0.2.0 of the R package storywranglr is now available on CRAN.

This package makes it easy to use the Storywrangler API to explore large-scale patterns in social media usage captured in Storywrangler, a data set of over 1 billion tweets from 2008 to 2021 (Alshaabi et al., 2021). This data is very helpful for tracing macro-trends in consumer interests and behaviour, and opens up a range of research avenues in marketing and the social sciences.

We’re working on a white paper, but in the meantime you can get the package from CRAN here, see the code on GitHub, and read an open-access paper from Storywrangler’s authors on Science Advances.
