Derek Thompson

May 02, 2014

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
