So I looked into who I follow on twitter (WOULD BE A GREAT GENERAL BLOGPOST) And I follow a lot weird accounts. If you are like me, many are bots, and that is ok.
To be clear, I know these are automated accounts, because they say so. I follow most of these accounts because they brighten up my twitter feed. Because my twitter experience is so much better when I see the occasional happy dogger between Trump breaking down everything in the US (even if I block Trump himself I get all these posts!), global warming and plastic polution.
One of the main reasons I’m on twitter is actually a beacon of hope and fun, and that is the #rstats community. Many people learning R, showing of cool visualisations and displaying new R packages.
So what can you do to brighten up your twitter wall? Check out and pick one or more of the following accounts that I spend an hour curating and sorting from general to oddly niche:
