Most liked R-bloggers’ posts from last week (2018-10-07 till 2018-10-13 – based on twitter)

October 15, 2018

I’ve recently added new bloggers to the site, leading to an influx of posts (142 new posts on the site, just last week). And while I love R, I do not have the time to read them all. Luckily, these posts are also published on R-bloggers twitter page, where over 62K followers see the new posts and decide if to give them a “like” or not. So I thought it might be helpful to sort all of last weeks posts (that got at least 15 likes), just to make sure I will not miss out on reading a particular popular post. I’m posting it here in the hopes that this would be helpful to others as well. Here is the list:
