Weiner was named to Time magazine’s list of America’s top tweeters, released Monday. His response was swift: “Honor the Jewfro!” he tweeted.

Weiner was one of 10 politicians who made the list of what Time said were 140 tweeters who are “shaping the conversation.”

The other politicians include Sens. Harry ReidHarry ReidConservative Senate candidate calls on GOP to end filibuster Ex-Reid aide: McConnell's 'original sin' was casting ObamaCare as 'partisan, socialist takeover' GOP faces growing demographic nightmare in West MORE (D-Nev.), John McCainJohn McCainSenate healthcare bill appears headed for failure Trump backers eye GOP primary challenges for Flake, Heller Manchin bashes GOP candidate for pushing McCain to resign MORE (R-Ariz.), Chuck GrassleyChuck GrassleyTrump Jr. adds to legal team ahead of Senate meeting Pentagon to address M spent on untested Afghan camouflage: report Franken: Trump Jr., Manafort need to testify under oath MORE (R-Iowa), Scott Brown (R-Mass.) and Claire McCaskillClaire McCaskillPentagon to address M spent on untested Afghan camouflage: report Federal Election Commission must not shy away from Russia probe Senate Dems warn potential Missouri GOP recruit with opposition research dump MORE (D-Mo.), along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker (D), former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.).

The magazine noted that Brown and McCaskill regularly add “a personal touch” to tweets. It also called Palin and Weiner “feisty” and said Grassley occasionally likes to “let loose” on his Twitter feed. 

Pelosi garnered props for breaking news on her feed. Capitol Hill denizens likely remember when she announced her intention to be minority leader after Democrats lost the House last fall.

Booker also got special mention for turning “his Twitter handle into an online help hotline” during the 2010 snowstorms that blanketed the Northeast.
