Mike Allen is the journalist most followed on Twitter by members of Congress
There's not much overlap in the Top 10 entities that Republican and Democratic members follow on Twitter, according to information compiled by New York magazine's Dan Amira and the firm Twiangulate. But 62.9 percent of members of Congress over all follow The Hill, with Politico a close second at 61.2 percent.
Politico's Mike Allen is the top journalism follow for both Republicans and Democrats. From there, the road branches sharply: MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is Democrats' No. 2 follow; Fox News' Chad Pergram holds that spot for Republicans. Nate Silver is Democratic members' No. 12 follow; he does not appear among Republicans' top follows.
