Senior contributing editor Lahav Harkov and culture reporter Amy Spiro, two Jerusalem Post journalists, gained spots on the Jewish Telegraphic Agency’s ranking of "The 50 Jews everyone should follow on Twitter."

“Israel news, a healthy dose of snark and more than you ever wanted to know about the Knesset. This is the Twitter feed of Lahav Harkov,” JTA wrote about Harkov’s account.

The senior editor has been writing for the Post for more than eight years and covers politicians from the across the spectrum, from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to left-wing members of Knesset.

Spiro’s feed is “a one-stop shop for your Jewish culture news needs.”

She has written about everything from the latest show to the latest BDS scandal and has worked at the Post for more than seven years.

The two reporters joined the ranks of other journalists from +972 magazine, Haaretz, The New York Times, CNN, Politico, The Atlantic, Al-Monitor and Tablet, among others.

Other notable Twitter accounts that were recommended were those of Trump’s Middle East negotiator Jason Greenblatt and comedian Sarah Silverman.

The ranking covered the gamut, including right- and left-wing rabbis, politicians, comedians and even chefs.
