Foreign Policy’s Twitterati 100: Which think tankers tweet good foreign policy news?

Foreign Policy magazine put together its list of 100 must-follow Twitter feeds (“The FP Twitterati 100”). Only seven think tankers made the cut — even with a “Wonks” category.

And here they are:

•Andrew Schwartz (@handrewschwartz) — Senior VP at the Center for Strategic & International Studies in Washington and a great aggregator of national security news.

•Tyler Cowen (@tylercowen) — Professor of economics at George Mason University, author, ethnic food expert, and pioneering econoblogger (and Cato Institute adjunct scholar).

•Sadanand Dhume (@dhume01) — South Asia analyst at the American Enterprise Institute.

•Michael Clemens (@m_clem) — Wide-ranging scholar at the Center for Global Development.

•Andrew Exum (@abumuqawama) — Former Army Ranger, blogger, and counterinsurgency guru at the Center for a New American Security.

•Joshua Foust (@joshuafoust) -- Irascible former intelligence analyst, blogger, and expert on South and Central Asia; unforgiving media critic.

•Micah Zenko (@MicahZenko) — Analyst at the Council on Foreign Relations; drone critic.

Who’s on the rest of the list? And which foreign policy think tankers would you add?

Allen McDuffee writes about politics and policy and covered think tanks for The Washington Post from 2011 to 2013. He freelances and hosts a podcast at and is currently working on a book about the influence of think tanks in Washington.
