It's no secret that J.K. Rowling is a talented author who obviously has a way with words. The same can be said for when the Harry Potter creator takes to Twitter. Rowling can't help but drop the mic every time she logs onto her social media account.

Whether she's expressing her opinion about politics (ahem, Donald Trump), taking down Harry Potter haters, standing up for human rights or showing trolls who's boss, Rowling is the queen of Twitter.

If you aren't following her yet, then you need to remedy that immediately. Rowling's Twitter deserves your time, energy and dedication. Also, seeing how she will soon celebrate her 51st birthday (July 31), Rowling would probably appreciate a Twitter follow. Plus, it's a great way to wish her a very Happy Birthday.
