Visualizing the Tweets of the U.S. Congress

by Michael McLaughlin
Congressional tweets about peaked in May.

The Pudding has created a data visualization tool that allows users to visualize the people, places, and things that members of the U.S. Congress most frequently tweet about. Users can filter the data by member, time and topic, including health, military, and guns. In the past year, members of Congress tweeted the most frequently about health and immigration and they mentioned China in a tweet more than 1,000 times. The Pudding used a machine learning algorithm to classify the tweets and will update the tool daily until 2021. 

Take a look.
