Congress Connections

Most US Senators probably like each other. But do they like each other on Twitter?

Let’s find out.

Today is March 24, 2017 That means we’re in the 116th meeting of congress. We got 50 states. That means 100 Twitter handles for 100 Senators. I gathered these and put them in a spreadsheet. Then I used the Twitter API to map all possible connections.

4,950 Connections

I define a connection as a non unique relationship between 2 individual Senators. This means each Senator has 99 connections, but a self connection ain’t one.
