The Trump administration has made fast and furious moves since the president took office, and frankly, it's damn near impossible to keep track of it all (opens in new tab). Here, in no particular order, we rounded up a few of our favorite feeds offering up-to-the-second POTUS updates. Worth pointing out: They're all women. 👊

Maggie Haberman (opens in new tab) (White House correspondent, New York Times)

Haberman's dogged reporting and behind-the-scenes intel translate into an incredibly comprehensive news feed. Haberman, whose byline drew an "eye-popping" 141 million page views in 2016 (opens in new tab), shares her insights on Trump-related stories of all shapes and sizes. Her feed is addictive, and consistently fascinating.

Jennifer Rubin (opens in new tab) (Conservative blogger, Washington Post)

Wondering what happened to principled conservatives? Look no further. Rubin writes the Washington Post's "Right Turn (opens in new tab)" blog and posts multiple times a day—but still finds plenty of time for incisive tweets.

3 Hend Amry (opens in new tab) (artist and writer)

Dubbed the "Queen of Muslim Twitter, (opens in new tab)" Hend Amry mixes sardonic wit with a social justice bent. Amry, who grew up in the United States and is the child of Libyan immigrants, is currently an expat living in Qatar. "At the end of the day," she told MuslimGirl.com (opens in new tab) last year, "I'm just one of many people who have moved into the online space to follow the news and share their views on all of the crazy events unfolding at what feels like breakneck speed."

4 Sarah Kendzior (opens in new tab) (columnist, Globe and Mail)

Unmatched in both clarity and urgency, Kendzior, a St. Louis based columnist for Canada's Globe and Mail, is also an anthropologist who specializes in authoritarianism. Her feed, and her writings, are cold-eyed shots of realism served with little snark or sugarcoating.

5 Joy Ann Reid (opens in new tab) (anchor, MSNBC)

Equal parts fire and fun, Reid, who hosts MSNBC's hard-hitting weekend morning show AM Joy, is a master of the conversational quote atop a retweet—and she's not afraid to call out the powerful.

6 Louise Mensch (opens in new tab) (journalist and former British Member of Parliament)

For those watching the Trump Administration drama unfold like the latest season of The Americans, this is the feed to follow. The former British politician and current (slightly controversial (opens in new tab)) journalist is sleuthing the potential links between Trump and Russia—and a crew of unnamed sources in the intelligence community have gone to Mensch with some major leaks. Hanging with Mensch can feel a bit like entering a limited-run series at episode eight, but it's a show you can't take your eyes off. (Bonus fact: Her husband manages Metallica.)

7 Mindy Finn (opens in new tab) (former vice presidential candidate)

Who better to oppose Trump than someone who ran against him? Finn, a former advisor to George W. Bush and Mitt Romney, ran as Vice President on Evan McMullin's independent ticket in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. She and McMullin co-founded @StandUpRepublic (opens in new tab) to lead "Americans in the promotion of liberty, equality and truth." Her tweets appeal to the same high-mindedness.

8 Maxine Waters (opens in new tab) (U.S. Representative for California's 43rd Congressional District)

Maxine Waters is not here for President Donald Trump, and she is not mincing words about it. The 78-year-old has served in the House since 1991, and she's described her distaste of the new POTUS with a fiery candor that's refreshing—and sometimes shocking—from a long-serving politician.

9 Rebecca Traister (opens in new tab) (writer at large, New York magazine)

The author of All the Single Ladies (opens in new tab), the bestselling "investigation into the sexual, economic, and emotional lives of women," tackles the Trump Administration's efforts (or lack thereof) with women's rights and social issues.

Lydia Polgreen (opens in new tab) (editor-in-chief, Huffington Post)

Polgreen's feed could double as a newswire. It's article-rich and a great way to stay on top of the latest news about President Trump. She also offers helpful stand-alone takes about what certain White House behaviors may mean.
