After more than a year (!), I finally wrote another episode of the "What to consider..."-series. This time I talk about the do's and don'ts of using tables within articles: https://blog.datawrapper.de/tables/
Arrow plots with tooltips 😍 I think the visual design could be a bit better executed (colors, typo, symbols), but I'm in love with the idea. By @NatGeo@twitter.com, via @email@example.com: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/foodfeatures/diet-similarity/

The best interactive story I've seen lately.
I had some fun looking for examples of callout lines in news graphics for a new post: https://blog.datawrapper.de/locatormap-calloutlines/ Thanks to @firstname.lastname@example.org, @ReutersGraphics@twitter.com, @email@example.com graphics team and especially @BBGVisualData@twitter.com for using so many great swoopy & straight lines pointing to things!
That was a fun chart to make in @Datawrapper@twitter.com! (Kudos to @firstname.lastname@example.org's book for the original.) https://blog.datawrapper.de/weeklychart-two-charts-one-scatterplot/
Two great hackathons are happening this weekend in Germany:

A few days ago @1wheel made a nice version of the chart that also shows the individual temperatures as points + linear trend lines

Great piece about how hard it would be to even reach the Paris agreement goals on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Would love to see this for Germany... https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/02/13/climate/cut-us-emissions-with-policies-from-other-countries.html
