What would you like to do?
Fixed version of twitterMap.R by Simply Statistics Blog. Fixed because currently you need oAuth to query user data. More details here http://lc0.github.io/blog/2013/08/25/twitter-word-cloud-with-r/

# These functions depend on the packages: twitteR, maps, geosphere, and RColorBrewer. It will
# attempt to install them if they are not installed when you source this function. Care
# should be used when using this function since the twitteR API has rate limiting in place.
# If you have a large number of followers, or run the function many times, you may be
# rate limited.
#
#
# How to use:
# # Source the function
# source("http://biostat.jhsph.edu/~jleek/code/twitterMap.R")
#
# # Make your twittermap
# twitterMap("simplystats")
#
# #If your location can't be found or latitude longitude can't be calculated
# #choose a bigger city near you. The list of cities used by twitterMap
# #can be found like so:
# data(world.cities)
# grep("Baltimore",world.cities[,1])
#
# # Then make the map using that big city
# twitterMap("simplystats",userLocation="Baltimore")
#
# #If you want both your followers and people you follow in a plot you can do:
# twitterMap("simplystats",plotType="both")
