How to use ionCongress.com

ionCongess.com includes tens of thousands of pages that update hourly, daily and monthly with fresh data. The main navigation bar is where to start. Each section is then easily navigated simply by scrolling up and down, similar to other live feeds you are familiar with, like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Here is a breakdown of the sections in the main navigation bar:


The News section consists of live twitter and RSS feeds from most Senators and Representatives. This section is updated hourly. The news "chunks" are organized by date, with the most recent news at the top of the feed. By default only chunks with RSS feeds are present, but by selecting "show all news" you will also get information from live twitter feeds that do not have a corresponding RSS feed.
