Derek Thompson

You could just follow Thompson on Twitter and probably feel pretty current on the news. The Atlantic senior editor and business columnist fills his feed with a great mix of news on everything from sports and cord cutting to tax code and hipster beards. His sense of humor comes through in every tweet, and he has a way of making dense topics easy to understand — even in 140 characters. —Callie Schweitzer
