This is one of the first posts from our Best of Washington feature, where we rank the very best people, places, and things to do in Washington. To read the whole list now, grab our July 2015 issue—available on newsstands or purchase the digital edition here—and come back to the website for more stories over the next few weeks.

@beschlossdc

Historical photos and forwardable facts from highly quotable Washington historian Michael Beschloss.

@conradhackett

A fire hose of Pew Research data from Conrad Hackett, one of the world's most exciting demographers.

@dcwater

News, rapid customer service, and the odd water joke.

@elaheizadi

Few Washington Post reporters are also standup comics. Elahe Izadi's feed is a source for news, comedy, and panda hatred.

@jmsummers

NPR reporter Juana Summers covers congressional news, but she also tweets about beer.

@margarita

Internet culture and ukulele talk from Margarita Noriega, Vox's "short-form editor."

This article appears in our July 2015 issue of Washingtonian.
