    @dominickellyuk Keep calm dear!

    Closest so far. I’m guessing the populations are projections for this year from 2017, but close enough for my purposes. twitter.com/hugovk/status/…

    @philgyford There's a CSV download here worldpopulationreview.com with "Current Population 2018", and two-letter codes in the "Flag" column, maybe they be ISO Alpha-2

    @johngoldin Thanks! https://t.co/thiePZdVQa itself has a CSV which includes the country codes too.

    @hugovk Ah yes, thanks! I think I’d seen that page and not tried the CSV, or thought about how they tied the flags into it.

    Anyone know where I can get a list of countries with up-to-date populations and ISO Alpha-2 codes? geonames.org/countries/ is good but is a few years old, judging by en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_c…

    @rachelcoldicutt Looks nice, but not all the user – a #betterinternetter to me would be a website that had working links (or showed all the text by default) when the JavaScript didn’t load, used HTTPS so I know the content hasn’t been altered, and wasn’t 1Mb in size on my 3G data plan...? :)
