[R] Need your favour : twitter sentiment issue while cleaning the corpus

In continuation to my initial mail I also observed that as I include more number of tweets, the likelihood of getting this error increases.

Platform I’m using:
- Mac Yosemite
- R version 3.2.2(RStudio) 

I have below questions:
- Does this error has to do anything with the default locale set in R session? I have had it set from Mac terminal “defaults write org.R-project.R force.LANG en_US.UTF-8” 
- Before creating the Corpus() I had the tweets converted to character by using this command tw_text <- sapply(tw, function(x) x$getText()). Is it the recommended approach ?

How should I go about getting this issue resolved ?
