Washington Post: We’ve created a Twitter bot that provides hourly updates on the situation in Puerto Rico. “On Wednesday we added a new tool: A Twitter account, @pr_recovery. Every hour, when our system checks status.pr for new data, the account will tweet an update on the efforts on the island. Each hour we’ll include numbers on power and water access; on other hours, we’ll add in other figures, too, such as the extent of phone coverage or bus service.”
