Two core functions of graphTweets are gt_edges and gt_co_edges which come with sister functions: gt_edges_bind and gt_co_edges_bind that help bind edges together to build more complex graphs.

Let’s get some tweets again.


# 1'000 tweets on #rstats, excluding retweets
tweets <- search_tweets("#rstats filter:mentions", n = 100, include_rts = FALSE)

In other sections we detailed, amongst other things, how to build 1) a network of hashtags and 2) a network of users connected to the hashtags they use in their tweets: how about we bind these two?

Functions are built in such a way to you can bind any edges together.
