21 Times JK Rowling Was The Badass Twitter Needed In 2017

In 1997, JK Rowling became the queen of children's literature with the release of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.”

Now, 20 years later, the 51-year-old author has also become the queen of digital media's favorite social network: Twitter. Sometimes she is tweeting sincere, heartfelt writing advice. Other times she's putting ignorant trolls in their damn place.

One thing's for sure: Jo has mastered Twitter in a way few celebrities at her level have. (Honestly, she's probably even better at Twitter than most of the so-called Twitter professionals I follow.)

Seriously, we're only four month in to 2017, and Rowling's Twitter page has already saved me more times than I can count.

Well, I mean technically I guess I can count the number of times Rowling's Twitter page has saved me. It's 21. That's kind of the point of this article.

Anyway, here you go! Proof that JKR will always be queen, no matter how apocalyptic things gets.

1. When she straight-up destroyed this asshole who burns books.

6. When she decided the time had come to take those “hell” recommendations to heart.

11. And then when she said it again louder, for the people in the back.

12. When she encouraged men to be free, and wear penises on their heads if they so desired.

18. When she politely asked she not be tagged in tweets about her death.

19. When she grew weary of the outdated “‘Harry Potter' is the devil” argument.

20. But she still had a little fun with those devil-worshippers.

21. And finally, when she reminded us all what “Harry Potter” is really about.

Bow down to the Twitter queen, everyone.
