Interesting Data Sets and Tools: Monthly Twitter Activity for All Members of the U.S. Congress

Drew Conway:

Today I am pleased to announce that we have worked out most of the bugs, and now have a reliable data set upon which to build. Better still, we are ready to share. Unlike our old system, the data now lives on a live CouchDB database, and can be queried for specific research tasks. We have combined all of the data available from Twitter’s search API with the information on each member from Sunlight Foundation’s Congressional API. […] But be forewarned, working with this system and CouchDB requires a mature understanding of several tools and languages; including but not restricted to; curl, map/reduce, Javascript, and JSON. And that’s before you have even done any analysis.
