#StuffDataGeeksSay - And That's A Wrap!

By Jonah-Kai Hancock 19 Jan, 2012

Thanks so much for helping us celebrate the launch of #Tableau7 and #StuffDataGeeksSay! Like we said before, you data geeks are a pretty funny bunch!

We hope it was as much fun and useful for you as it was for us. We appreciate all of the great questions, feedback, tweets, comments and wordplay.

Tweet Stats:

  • We had over 300 tweets about #StuffDataGeeksSay
  • Of those, over 40% were re-tweets. You must have enjoyed them as much as we did.
  • Best of all, 50 of you are getting t-shirts. We wish we had more time, because everyone deserves one.

Unfortunately we had to choose some of our favorites even though every tweet, quote and comment is near and dear to our heart.

The criteria we used was the following:

  • Does it relate to data.
  • Is it something a Data Geek would say. (some were hilarious but not applicable)
  • How many re-tweets, comments, etc. did the tweet have.
  • Which tweets did the Tableau Data Geek team like the most.

After a very complex mathematical process (actually it was just addition), we chose our winners!

If you're tweet is on here, send us an e-mail: social@tableau.com with your name, address, and shirt size (e.g. Men's Medium). And, again, thanks for the support.

If you still haven’t tried Tableau 7, check it out here.
