@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.
I was laid off from work. I worked less than half of last year. I am looking for work. I work in iron and steel mills and steel products.— censusAmericans (@censusAmericans) March 9, 2018
I have been taking care of my grandkids for about 3-4 years. I live with my grandkids. I don't have health insurance. I am self-employed.— censusAmericans (@censusAmericans) March 8, 2018
