New Feature: Dynamic Updates to "Twitter on THOMAS" Now Available on THOMAS Homepage

From an In Custodia Legis Blog Post by Andrew Weber:

Today we launched another update to THOMAS: our @THOMASdotgov Twitter feed is now dynamically updating on the homepage in the right column.  It is just below the Weekly Top Five.

One of our goals with the Twitter account is to provide timely alerts about legislative developments and, with this change, now we can do that directly from the homepage.

We’ve added a new way to browse legislation: by subject terms.  If you browse through the list you can see how many items have been tagged with each subject during this Congress.  A sample of the terms available to browse by includes education, energy, immigration, health, and law.

Also added to the Help section is a page on Putting THOMAS on Your Site.
