@Sunlight_Bot is a Twitter bot that tweets public financial disclosure data on Trump administration appointees and staffers sourced from ProPublica's Trump Town dataset. The bot is intended to be a resource to increase the accessibility of data about members of the federal government.

Sunlight Bot features the name and public data of one federal government staffer approximately every six hours. The following data is tweeted, depending on its availability within the dataset:

  • name
  • position title(s)
  • agency
  • salary
  • LinkedIn URL
  • Resume URL
  • financial disclosure form URL
  • ethics waiver URL
You can’t perform that action at this time.
