Engage with your Congress
This project listens for and aggregates tweets from members of Congress, linking them to each members' profile for posterity, trend derivation, and general sentiment surrounding current topics & legislation.
Every Congress member can be found in the database where each has a profile that includes their background, legislative and financial activity, social media accounts, and contact information.
congressfeed is a mashup of the ProPublica Congress API, Twitter Filtered Stream API, YouTube Data API, and the DuckDuckGo Instant Answer API, with supplemental member data from the @unitedstates public repository.
