Even with the “Retweets are not endorsements” disclaimer, it’s interesting to see which accounts D.C. journalists and pundits are sharing with their followers.

Spoiler alert: They tend to “keep it in the 4th Branch family.” The 10 most-retweeted accounts by journalists are … well other journalists.

Seven of the 10 most-retweeted accounts are POLITICO and reporters at POLITICO—with most of the retweets coming from their colleagues at POLITCO. The other three reporters getting the most retweet love hail from:

  • The Washington Post;
  • The New York Times; and
  • MSNBC.
