“Tidy Tuesday is a weekly social data project in R. Every week Thomas Mock; and the R for Data Science Community; post a new dataset and ask R users to explore it and share their findings on Twitter with #TidyTuesday. Since the first dataset was posted on April 2nd, 2018, there are now over 40 datasets and more than 800 #TidyTuesday tweets from 221 users!” —
