1/ This is a magnificent graphic.
2/ 👀👀👀 at the joint byline for both @billmarshnyt@twitter.com (the visual journalist) and the New York Times in general.

This is how it should be: bespoke artistry like this deserves full, named credit. twitter.com/adam_bonica/status

Extremely nerdy Halloween idea spurred by some @ftdata@twitter.com chat: what would go in your house of horrors?

Worst offenders in mine:
• A bubble chart with circles sized by radius instead of area 😱
• A dual axis line chart where the lines cross at an arbitrary point ☠️
