Twitter *doesn’t* tell you the gender balance of the people *you* follow. But this brilliant person wrote some code to estimate just that. And the good news is I follow only slightly more (estimated) men than women or nonbinary folks. This estimate is also slightly more optimistic about my own followers, placing them at only 75% male, not 80%.

Why does this 'timeline' have such a gender skew that is not representative of the Data Viz community? I will do the labor of asking the question, but you dudes need to do the rest. If it's not fixed, or at least addressed in some way, I will not participate or promote at all. Figure it out. And let me know.
