follow (redirect_request_options = {})

A get is invoked on the url stored in the response headers under the key ‘location’ and the new Response is returned.

The follow_redirects_count and follow_redirects_limit options should be present. follow_redirects_count will be incremented by 1.

This method will raise a Wrest::Exceptions::AutoRedirectLimitExceeded if the follow_redirects_count equals the follow_redirects_limit.
