In advance of E3 next week, Twitter users have hit the hype train hard by combining movies and Nintendo games under the hashtag "NintendoAMovie." Check out some of our favorite examples below. A few of these would make really great films!
If I had a dollar for every time I saw a "I didn't get my letter from Hogwarts" joke, I'd probably have as much money as JK Rowling, who apparently now has the luxury of spending her days responding to fans on Twitter.
The author's latest entry into the JK Rowling Twitter Hall of Fame (seriously, she's basically the president of the great nation of Twitter at this point) reminds you that even if your letter didn't arrive by owl, you definitely went to Hogwarts. So wipe those tears from your eyes and let the books be your Hogwarts Express.
J.K. Rowling confirmed a fan June 5 in their celebration of the character Draco Malfoy's birthday. She even let slip his age.
At the ripe, old age of 35, Draco can now officially be elected the President of the United States. Except for the fact that he was probably born in England. Or in the Wizarding World. Or whatever.
But if his parents took a portkey to America for the birth of their son and he was naturalized in the colonies, he could still make a run for it.
Rowling didn't stop there.
She amazingly took on a fan who doubted the legitimacy of Harry's naming his son after Serverus Snape.
What a basic fan complaint. Why do you engage with this J.K.? Don't you have things to do? Where are your children?
This shining beacon of a fan counted his lucky stars at getting so close to Arya Stark actor Maisie Williams.
Maybe he had just been drinking or the girl was a terrific liar, but the real Williams had to set him straight on Twitter.
Keep searching, you sensitive soul.
After Harry Potter author and resident Twitter Goddess JK Rowling tweeted a message of love and admiration for Ireland's recent gay marriage vote outcome by proposing a marriage between Dumbledore and Gandalf, the Westboro Baptist Church (regarded as the resident cesspool of humanity) challenged her fantastic meme by saying they'd picket any such union:
Rowling shut them down deftly, but one twitter user suggested that may not have been the right thing to do:
JK rebutted by saying the WBC wasn't what was important, but rather her show of support for those who need it:
You go, JK Rowling!
By the way, those above tweets are what Domino's considers an official announcement via their social media channels. Because #brands.
The idea is that you'll be able to register your Twitter handle with your existing Domino's pizza account, at which point you can throw a tweet at the Domino's corporate handle. They'll send you an automated direct message, and then BOOM. Pizza to your door.
What beautiful times we live in.
It's unclear whether she means "hey, sorry, I wish I hadn't killed him" or "hey, what a bummer, it makes me sad too," but JK Rowling has started a new tradition of apologizing for character deaths with the one and only Fred Weasley.
After an initial tweet said she was sorry about Fred, one fan asked about Tonks and Lupin. Rowling replied, "I thought I might apologise for one death per anniversary. Fred was the worst for me, so I started with him." I'll just be sitting here waiting on apologies for Hedwig and Dobby.
Another fan sought inspiration from the author, who provided a few lovely and humbling images that may get you through a future rough day:
D'aww. That cute little sloth makes up for Fred...a little.
This morning, DC Comics, creators of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and countless other iconic heroes, officially closed their New York Offices, their home since 1934.
Marvel responded to the news, by offering a tearful gif of Rocket Raccoon. While, DC Comics is fine and will thrive in their new LA home, NYC was the birth place of hero comics, and has been a part of their culture from the very beginning.
New York will miss you DC Comics.
Purportedly, One Direction means something to some people.
So when The Cute One/The Bad Boy/The Muslim One Zayn Malik announced he was leaving mega-popular 1D, the earth stopped on its axis and the nuclear winter that descended reflected the insides of our souls.
Here's what that looked like on social media:
Somehow the story is even worse than that sounds.
Kam Brock, @Akilahbrock, was pulled over by New York police and her car impounded when officers suspected she was driving under the influence of marijuana (none was found in the vehicle). After getting upset with officers and undergoing a medical evaluation, doctors thought she was suffering from a mental disorder - thinking her claims of being followed by Barack Obama on Twitter were bunk.
The only problem is that Barack Obama DOES follow @AkilahBrock, and around 640,000 other people. And now Brock is faced with thousands in medical bills after being sent to a facility. She's now pursuing legal action as a result of these stupid, insane events.
