Aggregation of point data to polygons MKII – US states

After a colleague of mine requested an illustration of the aggregation technique that was part of an introduction to spatial data in R, I decided to revisit aggregation. The first article I posted here on the subject used data from London; this one is slightly different, using Twitter data aggregated to the state level in the USA. All example code...
