Why shouldn't numbers be moved to the right of titles? As a non-designer, I find it nicer to see at a glance what is happening?

That said I agree with the rest of your critique...




takes longer to scan. Also the inconsistency, notice on the right margin he uses numbers to represent data, then later uses it as a control link to filter / edit data. It should only be the latter.

I don't think the problem is 'to-the-right' as much as 'on-the-right-margin'. Lots of tests show keeping values closer to their labels speeds comprehension; with a left-aligned label, and right-aligned value, and varying whitespace width between, interpreting the numbers is slightly slowed. (For example, in the redesign, the number of 'Following' is actually closer to the label for 'Followers'.)
