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

    And of our hearts.

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

    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.
