Who Has the Best Twitter Account in Cable News? Jake Tapper


Writing for Mediaite is the best. It involves watching cable news and scrolling through an infinite selection of lists on TweetDeck to find the best stories at the intersection of media and current events. One person has blended those two elements seamlessly. He is an inspiration to everyone at Mediaite and beyond.

Hopefully, he keeps it up for a long, long time. We will surely need more self-awareness and humor as the current election wears on.

Go to his account and see for yourself. It is brimming with treasures.
