[R-pkg-devel] Help with making a package for Twitter Authentication

I just use and external program: bti [1] and let it handle authentication
(there is a set up step).  That works beautifully for two cronjobs:
CRANberries [2] (which has tweeted thousands of times) and the CRAN Repo
Policy changes watcher [3] which tweets whenever the policy document is
updated.  I use bti because the R twitter clients were at the times shutout
from twitter, and I also had a devil of a time making them work. I never
looked back.

That said, I have not attempted to read in bulk.

Hth,  Dirk
