This code replicates the plots used in this analysis by The New York Times using Python and R.

Blog post.

Just edit config-sample.py with the development credentials obtained for your account and rename it to config.py. Then:

  1. Run python get_data.py account_name to get data for that account.
  2. Run Rscript plot_data.R account_name to save a JPG file with the desired plot. Alternatively, you can start R in interactive mode and call the save_username_plot function to obtain a ggplot2 object.
