Even now that she’s working on her second installment of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, J.K. Rowling is maintaining her fierce twitter presence. The author is known for shutting down trolls and sending out encouragement to her many fans. Rowling is a master communicator when it comes to her fans and her twitter feed.
A fan tweeted, tagging Rowling, a picture with the following quote;
“One day in the middle of my life the news headlines will be ‘J.K. Rowling Died Today’. My children won’t fully understand why I left the room crying, or why I picked up a book titled, Harry Potter. Millions will pull out old toy wands. Cloaks and round rimmed glasses will be dusted off. Wands lit, they will take them to the streets, holding them high, from speakers and phones. Hogwarts will come back to life as a new generation is introduced to The Boy Who Lived.”
J.K. Rowling responded to the tweets as things quickly ran amok with people discussing her eventual demise.
This is very sweet, but I won’t be offended if you untag me when making plans for my death. pic.twitter.com/LfLSTuTxQO

Seriously, tweet whatever you like. I just don’t want to be tagged in on the funeral plans. It’s… weird. https://t.co/d98WEwsvKl

Not all of her fans were gearing up for a funeral, though. There were many supportive tweets following the initial post.
We look forward to many more years of writing and amazing tweets from “Queen Rowling” and hopefully a sneak peek at Fantastic Beasts number two!
