Tweetdeck groups

Tweetdeck has a function with which you can create groups of all your twitter contacts. It's really a nice function when you have many contacts and want a column in Tweetdeck dedicated to updates of people you really want to stay up-to-date with (family, close friends, etc..). Seems like a useful function right? Well, the thing is that when you follow more and more people (thus the function becoming more and more useful), loading the list of your contacts will take forever (or at least 70 seconds in my case). I don't know of this is a shortcoming in Tweetdeck or twitter itself, it's not helping the groups function either way. Since my twitter group is growing quite fast I can only hope this will improve, let me know if there are any good alternatives to this!

A hierarchy of evidence (or levels of evidence) is a heuristic used to rank the relative strength of results obtained from scientific research. I've created a version of this chart/pyramid applied to CRO which you can see below. It contains the options we have as optimizers and tools and methods we often use to gather data.

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that. Recorded live with audience pre-covid-19 at the Conversion Hotel conference in november 2019 on the island of Texel in The Netherlands. (oorspronkelijk gepubliceerd op https://www.cro.cafe/)
