    18 Times J.K. Rowling Was The Undisputed Queen Of Twitter

    And of our hearts.

    1. When she taught us all to dream for a new dream job.

    'What would you like to be if you weren't a writer?' An otter weigher.

    2. When she gave us an insight into past heartbreaks.

    .@UTG_manchester I remember you vividly. You left without ever telling me why. Still hurts.

    3. When she taught us an important lesson about social media.

    4. When she was sorrynotsorry for making mistakes.

    Typos. The curse of the passionate tweeter.

    5. When she was adorably self-effacing.

    I can't say I consider myself a 'world leader' though. Maybe of worlds inside my head? In the real world I can barely lead my dog.

    6. When she took a moment to commemorate a heartbreaking event in everyone's lives.

    It's the 16th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. I'm having a moment's silence over my keyboard. I hated killing some of those people.

    7. When she showed some love for even the bad guys.

    Happy pride day to all Slytherins, you devious little serpents, you.

    8. When she shut Ross Noble down – in an encouraging, loving way.

    A friend of mine sent me this photo of when I was in slitherin house at Hogwarts

    .@realrossnoble Classic case of a Hufflepuff trying to be edgy. Be who you really are, Ross.

    9. When she taught everyone a new word.

    .@McPottah Ah, the question I've been waiting for all my life. The answer, of course, is no. I am poikilothermic.

    10. When she took down Rupert Murdoch after an anti-Muslim tweet.

    I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I'll auto-excommunicate.

    11. When she inspired fans with this message.

    12. When she saved an overzealous fan from themselves.

    If @jk_rowling answers my question I'll get her face tattooed on my forehead

    .@sirius_birthday That is a truly grotesque thought. I can never answer you now.

    13. When she confounded everyone's expectations for who would attend Hogwarts.

    To everyone asking whether their religion/belief/non-belief system is represented at Hogwarts: the only people I never imagined there 1/2

    14. And then when she gave the most perfect response as to why.

    @jk_rowling I could imagine Luna being a little bit wiccan!

    .@GredxForgex Me too! But it's a different concept of magic to the one laid out in the books, so I don't really see how they can co-exist.

    15. When she paid tribute to one of the greats.

    16. When she and Hermione backed Emma Watson after her speech on feminism.

    @jk_rowling do you think that hermione would be proud about emma watson's un speech? x9

    .@wastsons She'd be extremely proud. Emma's speech was incredible. #HeForShe

    17. When she kept being passionate about writing.

    OK, enough of this skittishness... I've had a very good Writing Day, which always affects me like a couple of strong cocktails.

    18. When she loved her fans as much as they love her.

    We love you J.K!
