If you’re interested in a list of Twitter accounts for the current US Senate (115th Congress), here’s what I’ve found. The accounts are assigned to one of three categories:
- Official Senator accounts, where the tweets are identified as coming from the senator or seem to be in first person,
- Senate staff accounts, where the tweets are identified as not coming from the senator or speak of him/her in third person, and
- Campaign / other accounts, where it could be the senator’s private account, the campaign account, or some vestige of a previous account. It may not be active.
At this time, many incoming senators do not have official Twitter accounts or their account names represent their former positions. I expect this to change over the next month or so. Consider this list provisional for now.
Please send any corrections my way!
