Correct - that’s what the legend at the top clearly states: CPI compared to the same month of the previous year.

The tweet chart seems to plot monthly inflation rate, which I take to be the rate of increase from month to month.

This distinction is often overlooked when inflation figures are “reported”, leading some to think that a low rate of inflation increase from one month to another indicates that CPI prices may somehow be coming down, where in fact it is cumulative.
