Top Iowa political tweeters: A Fix List

at 02:17 PM ET, 12/29/2011

The Fix, as anyone who has followed the blog for more than five minutes knows, loves lists. Rankings, winners and losers, top 10s — we just can’t get enough.

And so, we thought it made sense to formalize our love of lists a bit. Today we launch the first of what we hope will be a series of Fix Lists (#FixList on Twitter) that provide an ever-expanding resource for the political junkies of the world.

Our model for the Fix Lists is the best state-based political blogs list we have been maintaining for the last few years. We combine what we know with the collective Fix Hive Mind (kind of like the Borg or Cylons) to put together a useful tool for all of us who can rightly be described as a little too into politics.

With the Iowa caucuses only five days away — goosebumps! — we thought it made sense to kick off the Fix List project with a list of the must-follow Iowa political tweeters. You can check out who made the list below or follow them all with a simple click of a button.

What other Fix Lists do you want to see? This is as much your project as it is ours so let your voice be heard either a) in the blog comments section b) on Twitter (@thefix) c) on Facebook.
