Twitter faves


If you’ve been following our activities for the past years, you know how much we like Twitter. Arguably the most active social network within the data visualization and journalistic communities, the popular micro-blogging platform continued to grow in 2013, a trend that is sure to continue this year.

During the time we’ve been using Twitter, we collected several insights from folks who work or are interested in data visualization, and we thought it would be fun to pull some of some of our favorites of 2013 in to a single post. We tried to focus on messages without links, and there’s no way we can do a post about Twitter and data visualization without recommending some of the most prolific users, such as Alberto Cairo (@albertocairo), Santiago Ortiz (@moebio) or Andy Kirk (@visualisingdata), just to mention a few.

So, hope you enjoy this selection – and get ready to Retweet a lot!


Have a great selection of Twitter favorites? Well, we’ll be happy to publish it, just let us know… on Twitter (@visualoop).
