Tweeting the census one real american at a time.
@censusAmericans is a
[…] Twitter bot that mines for details in the [Census] data. […] it tweets short biographies of Americans based on data they provided to the U.S. Census Bureau between 2009 and 2013. Using a small Python program, the bot reconstitutes numbers and codes from the data into mini-narratives. Once an hour, it turns a row of data into a real person.
