Of all the different social media platforms out there, Twitter always gets the best of me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve downloaded the app, tried to follow and navigate it, then ultimately deleted it. I envy the people that have mastered it. Luckily, because of regrams and screenshots I never miss the best of the best tweets. Unexpectedly, J.K. Rowling is bae when it comes to the best of the best.
She’s outspoken, opinionated and the master of tweet backs – especially to those pesky internet trolls. I’ve rounded up what I think are her 10 best (and personal favorites) tweets below.
When a Trump supporter threatened to burn her books.
When someone said Serena Williams was ‘built like a man’
When she tweeted a fan a handwritten spell
When someone called her a ‘pasty bitch’
When a fan couldn’t see Dumbledore as gay
When she turned a troller into a lover
When Twitter criticized the casting of Noma Dumezweni as Hermoine in the Cursed Child
When she gave a corrected version of her rules for success.
When she was all of us at the end of 2016
And most recently…When she trolled Sean Spicer
I think it’s pretty great that someone like J.K. Rowling – with all her wealth and fame – can be, how can I put it, such a human? I mean that in the best way possible. With all of social media’s faults and flaws, it’s an amazing outlet for human connection. What did we ever do without it?! What did we ever do without J.K. on Twitter?!
Until Next Time!
