Ousted FBI director James Comey’s Senate testimony is being played up as one of the biggest TV events of the year and not just on C-SPAN. But if you don’t want to or can’t watch, here’s a Twitter cheatsheet of who to follow to keep up.

Comey’s set to start testifying at 10 a.m. ET Thursday to the Senate Intelligence Committee. That’s the group leading the Senate probe into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign leading up to the 2016 presidential election.

Twitter will be inundated during the Senate testimony with #ComeyHearing, #Comey, and #ComeyTestimony tweets, so here’s a breakdown to get the most out of the online chatter.

We made a list filled with politicians, journalists, experts, and more to make it easier to cut through the noise, but it’s still going to be noisy. Hold on tight.

Sen. Richard Burr @SenatorBurr

He’s the chair and the Republican leading the hearing.

Sen. Kamala Harris @KamalaHarris

@realDonaldTrump

Aka POTUS.

(You won’t see any of this account’s protected tweets, but this might be Comey’s Twitter: @projectexile7.)

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn @GenFlynn

Flynn’s brief stint as Trump’s national security advisor is quite the mess. Comey says Trump asked him to let go of FBI investigation into Flynn and his connection to Russian officials. Flynn’s Twitter account has been dormant for months, but maybe Thursday’s testimony will inspire him to tweet.

For anyone who wants to watch and be on Twitter, Bloomberg will be livestreaming from the platform.

That should cover you.
