Sketching Connections Between US House and Senate Tweeps

Node size is proportional to betweenness centrality measured over the directed graph where edges go from one person to a person they follow. The edge set is limited to edges between members of the four @huffPostPol lists: republican-senators, democratic-senators, democratic-members, republican-members.
