I made a Twitter Bot that reports stock trades made by U.S. Lawmakers

I’ve been working on this for about a month and finally have something that I am proud of. There are two goals here: (1) giving more visibility on Congress violating the STOCK Act and (2) give everyone insight into what the “Insiders” are trading.

There are a few things to note:

  • I can only post transactions as they are disclosed, which could be a few days or some even as much as 45 days old (if they are following the law).
  • I recently added the House of Representatives which do WAY more transactions since there are 435 (vs 100 Senators) of them so I’m thinking things could get messy if there are 30+ transactions per day (or more!). Maybe consolidating them would be a good idea in the future.

I am welcoming any suggestions / feedback. What would you like to see anything added or taken away? Is this useful at all?
