Twittering All Public Laws


Someone has finally made a useful feed of information with Twitter. Twitter is mostly a collection of people's every minute musings about what they are doing at that very minute ("I'm twittering"). It's sort of an RSS feed of poems from the Zenrin Kushu ("Sitting quietly, doing nothing. Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself"). Josh Ruihley, from Sunlight Labs, however, decided to do something useful with Twitter and created the first Twitter feed of U.S. Public Laws. Everyday new laws are introduced in Congress and with the Public Laws Twitter feed you can now stream the laws introduced in Congress onto a widget on your blog or keep track of the laws for your own purposes through the Twitter feed or through RSS. Check it out.
