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 ReidThe Memo: Trump pulls off a stone-cold stunner The Memo: Ending DACA a risky move for Trump Manchin pressed from both sides in reelection fight MORE (D-Nev.), John McCainJohn Sidney McCainSenate's defense authorization would set cyber doctrine Senate Dems hold floor talk-a-thon against latest ObamaCare repeal bill Overnight Defense: Senate passes 0B defense bill | 3,000 US troops heading to Afghanistan | Two more Navy officials fired over ship collisions MORE (R-Ariz.), Chuck GrassleyCharles (Chuck) Ernest GrassleyGrassley: 'Good chance' Senate panel will consider bills to protect Mueller Overnight Finance: CBO to release limited analysis of ObamaCare repeal bill | DOJ investigates Equifax stock sales | House weighs tougher rules for banks dealing with North Korea GOP state lawmakers meet to plan possible constitutional convention MORE (R-Iowa), Scott Brown (R-Mass.) and Claire McCaskillClaire Conner McCaskillGOP sees fresh opening with Dems’ single payer embrace Senators blast internet subsidy program It is time to make domestic terrorism a federal crime 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.
