Okay, you might not agree with that 1am online quiz you took saying you belong in Slytherin, but it’s undeniable that author J.K. Rowling moulded the childhoods of a generation with her beloved characters Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Creator of a fantastical world of wizards and witchcraft - the literary series evolved into a $7.7 billion dollar movie franchise - who would have pegged the British writer as the one to hold D-Trump accountable, set straight her fanatical fans’ theories and generally be one of the most entertaining people to follow on social media?

As it happens, the avid Tweeter chose her medium well, matching the POTUS’ preferred method of communicating with the world. She has such strong views on the US President that, irate with her constant and vocal criticisms, he blocked her Twitter account.

So, on her 53rd birthday, we celebrate her Twitter presence with some of her finest tweets.

So, on her 53rd birthday, we celebrate her Twitter presence with some of her finest tweets.

1. The time one follower was crazy enough to use ‘can’ instead of ‘may’

2. When truth was stranger than fiction...

3. When Eurovision brought back painful childhood memories

4. When she schooled Westboro Baptist Church

5. And again defended the LGBTQI community

6. When she was faced with some unusual fan art…

7. The time one follower asked what to do with their life...

8. When a Trump supporter tried to challenge her

9. The time she *nearly* lost her patience

10. When Brexiters challenged her favourite animal

11. The time she got writer's block and could related to Aussie landmarks like Mount Hopeless

12. And finally, when she was humble about her literary achievements
