Is it a data frame or a tibble?

Is it a data frame or a tibble?: Learning the R Tidyverse
Is it a data frame or a tibble?: Learning the R Tidyverse

The author uses data frame and tibble almost interchangeably. Correctly, a data frame is from base R and is designed for handling rectangular data. Tibbles are the reimagining of the data frame and are more efficient, prettier, and generally better. They're the data structure of the tidyverse. It's very easy to convert between the two—therefore continue to misidentify data frames as tibbles as they're easier to pronounce.
