This is a nice way to visualise and discern patterns in the timing of Twitter posts. It's clear which accounts are automated and which are operated by humans. It also means #rstats' `ggplot2::coord_polar(...)` has utility beyond pie charts!

Ahmed Hasan (@ahmedrhasan; 160): My new website is live! This has been a fun side project over the past few weeks after I decided I wanted to switch from Jekyll to Hugo + blogdown. It was a bit tricky at times but I’m super pleased with the results!

Caroline Ledbetter (@C_line_sealion; 151): The amazing @apreshill helps me so much! I use her “making slides …” EVERYTIME I make a presentation, after failing all day to deploy my new blogdown site on netifly and nearly giving up to the rescue 12

Matt.0 (@MattOldach; 32): HI MY NAME IS MATTHEW AND I HAVE AN ADDICTION. I’m powerless to writing SO posts at 11pm when pleas for help fall on deaf-ears on #rstats 😪 What am I doing wrong with the academic theme for #blogdown here 🤷‍♂️

Matt.0 (@MattOldach; 20): @apreshill @thomas_mock Thank you very much Alison! Sorry I was just reading through all of these blogdown’s to try and figure it out: I followed a guide to setting up this structure but I won’t name names as I’ve been breaking/learning things going along 🙄

Omar Gonzáles Díaz (@o_gonzales; 11): After a long time I’ve a new post for my block: its a Rmd file. I’ve knit it to get an html file. Then I’ve run blogdown::build_site() and blogdown::serve_site() but this new entry is not being recognize. Any hint on why this is happening? #rstats #blogdown

Matt.0 (@MattOldach; 10): @apreshill @thomas_mock FWIW I think many blogdowns are missing Rmd versions on Git 😱 When I started this blog ~1year ago it still seemed like the wild-west when it came to “best-practices” for blogdown. I think next time I do a re-design I’ll go through all the wonderful work u did! This works! 🙏

Alison Hill (@apreshill; 10): @MattOldach @thomas_mock haha no worries! I have a preferred folder structure with content/ and the source files there, but whatever works! It is easier to get help when people can see the md/Rmd versions of docs too, as opposed to the html versions. I have lots of stuff on how to blogdown!

David Keyes (@dgkeyes; 155): Question for #rstats people who write long-form books using the {bookdown} package: do you actually write in RStudio or do you write somewhere else and then copy into RStudio? The lack of real time spell check, among other things, has me considering this approach.

Damien C-C (@dccc_phd; 114): @realnelsongon @IsabellaGhement And all three of these #Rstats books are available online for FREE! >

श्रवण वसिष्ठ / Shravan Vasishth (@shravanvasishth; 70): The more fancy and cutting edge one’s R code, the more brittle it gets. At least that’s been my experience. From one day to the next, I can go from being able to compile bookdown to not being able to compile it. All I did was upgrade R (my fault).

Simon Kapitza (@simonecology; 50): @sanadsaad @AcademicChatter 1) Zotero, it is and will stay freeware.

Glenn Tattersall (@TattersallG; 10): @ruralcolonialNS I hear you are moonlighting as a programmer/pirate: ;-)

Yihui Xie (@xieyihui; 10): @Esclaponr Not much. You can find all changes in the release notes: Most changes are minor. It is just that some new features have been added to the bookdown package, which are not reflected in the book, but I don’t think they are super important.
