Even when filtering by the relatively sober #rstats hashtag, I find twitter to be the stream of consciousness of an undisciplined collective mind: disjoint and ephemeral. Nevertheless, on any given day some useful R resources float by, and it is frequently the case that interesting items disappear downstream before I can record them. Here are a few I did manage to fish out recently.
