This is a very simple app, with a very simple objetive: Reply with data the question "how many women write in argentinean newspapers?"ColumnistOS (those who write the "opinion" columns in the newspapers, empathizing the ending of the word, that in spanish is masculine) is a bot that sweeps the main printed media outlets homepages and finds out who are signing each opinon newspiece. It then genderizes the authors (based on the names, with a little help from humans if needed) and tweets every day at 10am, the results from the previous day, in percentages. Every month (or two), we manually make a dataviz of the elapsed time, the evolution and some important remarks in the middle.
