The two researchers—Heathers has called himself "a data thug"—have been..effective at uncovering problematic data—and publicly airing their concerns on websites and in the media. Their work has led to corrections to dozens of papers, and the full retractions of about 20...the duo concedes that their..style might rub some scientists the wrong way, they've attracted..little criticism from academic peers.

Some of us left Twitter not just because of one thing or another but because the entire tone of the place was destructive to our mental health. Ok, me. I did.
