Get user [account] suggestions for authenticating user

Returns Twitter's list of suggested user categories.

Usage
suggested_slugs(lang = NULL, token = NULL)

suggested_users(slug, lang = NULL, parse = TRUE, token = NULL)

Arguments
lang

optional Restricts the suggested categories to the requested language. The language must be specified by the appropriate two letter ISO 639-1 representation.

token

Every user should have their own Oauth (Twitter API) token. By default token = NULL this function looks for the path to a saved Twitter token via environment variables (which is what `create_token()` sets up by default during initial token creation). For instruction on how to create a Twitter token see the tokens vignette, i.e., `vignettes("auth", "rtweet")` or see ?tokens.

slug

required The short name of list or a category

parse

Logical indicating whether to parse the returned data into a tibble data frame. See details for more on the returned users data.

Details

Currently, this parsing process drops all recursive (list) columns, which mostly means you are shorted some entities data. To maximize users data, however, it is recommended to make an additional lookup_users call using the user IDs returned by this function.

Value

List of recommended categories which can be passed along as the "slug" parameter in suggested_users

Recommended users
