Big Data
I've recently collected data from the Twitter Streaming API and now the JSON sits in a 10 GB text file. I'm looking to have R handle all the big data but I'm not sure if it could do a few things, such as:
  • Read / process the data into a data frame
  • Descriptive analysis
  • Plotting
Can R do this? Or do I have to write a Python script for this? I would appreciate the help.
