A happy data visualisation

As a side project this week, I've been learning how to get data out of Twitter using R. How it's done might be a post for another day (it's not really difficult, except for R's usual quirks...)

For now, here's a Wordle picture of Twitter in a happy mood, searched for "Bank Holiday" at 5pm on the Friday before a long weekend. Have a great break everyone.

Dude, a word cloud????? Mullet of the Internet. Why not just do a 3d pie chart and have done with it.

Nothing wrong with a word cloud as long as you don't pretend it's analysis!

Anyway, the mullet of the internet is the infographic - that's why most of them are so long.
