This holiday I'm partnering with @RayDalio and friends to give away 20,000 $50 charity gift cards. There are no strings attached - our hope is that you experience the joy of giving. Visit https://t.co/mv4r9BQbNM to claim yours. Let's #RedefineGifting

@PapaLamb77 @tvladeck Deaths do not influence Rt - rather the other way around but likely lagged between 2-3 weeks. You may see spurious correlation because of that lag

Just launched a brand new https://t.co/qOXHZuNuPJ - state detail pages and a much improved model. We built this so we can see how our actions have helped or hindered the spread of #COVID19. Short answer: the current trajectory is very concerning.

@bspenn Doesn’t account for lockdowns - just looks at the data. You’ll see Maine has a high R but the absolute number of cases is tiny. If you have 50 people infecting only 50 people every 4 days you aren’t in that much trouble. R is one part of the picture

@ErikaSWang And this pizza was 👌🏻

@ErikaSWang The increase in daily cases is likely due to increased testing. We show raw new cases not the case curve the model uses.... known issue!

If you're cooking more, make a simple gantt chart to plan backwards. Helps get dinner on the table on time!

@realMikeMartin It’s less bi direction than omnidirectional ;) we tried to account for this by showing the last 5 days are - - - as those days are likely far more variable.

@realMikeMartin @mikeyk You’re correct. Everything is moving so fast that we prioritized getting results out before publishing a clean notebook. I’m going to do my best to get this out soon.

New model run is up - VA, PA and CT all changed to be far more reasonable descriptions of their situations. Missing data at src manually corrected and now fine. NY showing an uptick but likely noise and short-lived.

A challenge w/rt model is that it considers all data at once, not sequentially. This means recent values change in light of new data (more accurate). However it can be jarring if you expect to see a single new value each day. How do you resolve?

I’d like to share a bit more about the model now up at https://t.co/n2akgQFToy - it’s extraordinary what help we’ve received from experts to improve this measure. (1/many)

It's been about a week or so using Twitter actively. It's been so useful for building https://t.co/qOXHZuNuPJ and has enriched the whole experience. Hadn't given it enough time since signing up in 2006 so just want to give credit where it is due to @jack and his team.

It's late, so more tomorrow but quick summary: new model up at https://t.co/qOXHZuNuPJ - more accurate, more resilient to reporting spikes, etc. Model source notebook in footer.

"It's like driving a car 100mph down a freeway trying to control it by looking in the rear view mirror," says @Kevin on #COVID19 data. "That's part of why we built the site--we wanted to give people an insight into how the stats are actually developing with a reliable algorithm."

We're open sourcing the code behind the https://t.co/WHbhp7XhWx website, too: https://t.co/FTYcd6ijD3 If you're interested in the JS + d3 code that powers the visualizations on the site, it's now there for you to explore

Recorded a new #podcast with co-founder and former CEO of @instagram, @kevin Systrom, last night. We talked wealth & happiness, meditation, https://t.co/nIfTEqcduz, Bayesian modeling, #PyMC3, and much more. Catch up on old episodes here: https://t.co/p2uALnYPKn

Today I had a chance to interview @kevin, co-founder of Instagram. Here is the link to the Youtube live recording: https://t.co/rO732xNT8h Kevin shares some really interesting lessons since his last talk @Stanford nearly a decade ago. @ECorner

Made some big performance improvements to our main visualization at https://t.co/sg5xAHDjS3 when animating or highlighting states that have reopened/never sheltered— give it a try :)

Just launched: you can now easily share any state graph's Rt curve. Hover over the chart and click "Share"; chart will show up as a Twitter card https://t.co/ekBhRmJ8hf

New on https://t.co/sg5xAHDjS3 — the state charts mark Shelter-in-Place being lifted in some states.

Just pushed a set of visual tweaks & performance improvements to https://t.co/sg5xAHDjS3. Thx to @yoavweiss for the detailed perf ideas & to @rauchg & the next.js team (ported it over to Next as part of changes)
