Whodunnit?

For accessibility, the following is a transcription of the colors. The colors of each egg (b/p/y) from top to bottom are listed in each string. Eggs in a row are separated by spaces, and rows of eggs are separated by newlines.

    $\begingroup$ Is there any chance you could provide a transcription of the colors here? $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Apr 12 at 16:13

    $\begingroup$ @noedne Both. I am colorblind, so the transcription would help that way, but it would also make things less tedious for whatever processing of these eggs is necessary. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Apr 12 at 16:58

    $\begingroup$ @Deusovi You're right, and I've now added a transcript. I wasn't sure the best way to format it, but I hope it's sufficient. $\endgroup$ – noedne Apr 12 at 17:27

This is a nice little Easter puzzle :) It turns out there are:

20 pairs of matching Easter eggs in this image. This is hinted at by the hashtag '#twinning' and the use of "20|20" in the title - it doesn't just happen to be the current year but also a nod to how many pairs of eggs there are.

(I should admit that I used the supplementary text version to enable me to find them more easily using Excel and a LOT of Ctrl+F...)

The next thing to do is:

Notice that for each pair of eggs there isn't ever too much distance between the two matching eggs. There are also several instances where one of the pair occupies the top line and the other occupies the bottom line in the same column. This suggests to me that we might be expected to draw straight lines linking each pair and see if this produces an image, akin to a dot-to-dot.

Doing this produces the following:

enter image description here

If we are to presume that the question 'Whodunnit?' translates as 'Who has hidden the eggs?', well the answer is now right before our eyes!

The straight lines appear to spell out the letters of 'RABBIT'. It's that Easter Bunny again!
