getTimeline connects to the REST API of Twitter and returns up to 3,200 recent tweets sent by these user. If the total number of tweets sent by this user is less than 3,200 tweets, it will return all tweets.

Usage
getTimeline(filename, n = 3200, oauth_folder = "~/credentials", screen_name = NULL, id = NULL, since_id = NULL, trim_user = "true", sleep = 0.5, verbose = FALSE)

filename
file where tweets will be stored (in json format)
n
number of tweets to be downloaded (maximum is 3,200)
oauth_folder

screen_name
user name of the Twitter user for which his/her tweets will be downloaded
id
id of Twitter user for which his/her tweets will be downloaded (Use either of these two arguments)
since_id
id of the oldest tweet to be downloaded. Useful if, for example, we're only interested in getting tweets sent after a certain date.
trim_user
if "true", downloaded tweets will include user object embedded. If "false", only tweet information will be downloaded.
sleep
numeric, number of seconds between API calls. Higher number will increase reliability of API calls; lower number will increase speed.
