CongressTweets

Collaborating with Andrea Bradshaw, we created an interactive data visualization of the Twitter habits of United States Congressmen.

We used data from the Twitter API, the Sunlight Foundation and the New York Times Congressional API. Using the interface, users could compare attendance at votes, voting with or against party records, according to twitter activity, represented region, party and gender.

Our project was featured on a Swiss data visualization site, +DataVisualization.ch and noticed by Tweet Congress and New York Times Openblog.
