Twitter Queens: The Best Female Tweets
FROM reactions to celebrity nudes to J.K. Rowling’s brilliant response to homophobia, here’s your guide to the best female tweets of the week!
If you're waiting for universal popularity, you'll be on Twitter a VERY long time. xxxx
— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) September 6, 2014
Earlier this week, an internet troll tweeted JK Rowling complaining about the fact that she revealed Dumbledore was homosexual. Rowling hit back by advising the troll to follow Brian Souter, a Scottish business man famous for his support of homophobic legislation. After receiving positive support from her fans, Rowling thanked them and paraphrased Dumbledore with this piece of Twitter gold. It just goes to show that Harry Potter quotes are always relevant in every situation!
Don't take nude selfies. Don't wear skirts. Don't drink. Don't go back to his room. This stupid fucking list gets longer every year.

I understand that you give up certain aspects of privacy when you are a celebrity, but this should never happen to anyone.

I'm partial to a titty pic myself! *Throws phone in sea*.

With the recent release of hundreds of nude pictures from celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Ariana Grande, the great debate on the privacy rights of the rich and famous has begun. Although most people agree that celebrities should take extra precautions when it comes to their personal photos, there is really still no excuse when it comes to the violation on basic rights of privacy. One of the primary factors in this instance is that the photos were not ‘leaked’ from a partner or friend of the celebrities in question, but rather they were stolen outright by an unknown hacker. This raised the more serious issue of victim-blaming and the objectification of women, which resulted in Twitter suspending many accounts that were sharing the photos.
Honestly if you just referred to her as Kendall I would 100% of the time know who you're talking about.

Although not quite as much a mouthful as Kardashian, saying Kendall Jenner every single time is so redundant. Can we all just agree to call them by their first names from now on?
I pay for a gym membership so that I don't feel guilty about not going
— Maggie Mull (@IAmMaggieMull) July 30, 2014
I can’t be the only person who does this. I’ll go months without having a gym membership and feel completely guilty the whole time, and then the second I pay for one I feel like the healthiest girl on Instagram. Before I’ve even gone. I would definitely just pay like €100 a month to escape the feeling of guilt.
Can't decide if I wanna keep looking for apartments in LA or pull my eyelashes out one by one
— Lara Parker (@laraeparker) September 1, 2014
As the college year descends upon us, the hunt for uni-adjacent houses begins. The cheap rent, which we have known and loved for the last 6 years is gradually rising, which also means landlords can be a bit fussier about who they’re renting to. While we may not be experiencing Los Angeles-like housing struggles yet, Irish apartment hunting is definitely getting worse.
I swear I only attract spiders and calories
— Jennifer Hassan (@GuinnessKebab) September 3, 2014
It’s that time of year where spiders are making appearances in living rooms, bathrooms and most horrifically, in beds. Even if you haven’t come across one yet, you’ve seen the pictures your friends have posted on Facebook and each night you know there’s one lurking somewhere in your room. Just waiting. Combine that with the upcoming release of the Pumpkin Spice Latte and Mammy’s Irish Stew, winter just makes everybody a magnet for spiders and calories.
If you’ve ever liked a college/nightclub events page on Facebook, you will know this struggle. Every day, notification after notification, with no end in sight, all because the location of your class party has changed, or the time, or the day. The best thing to do is just throw your computer out of the nearest window and become a recluse. Until the next sesh in D2, of course.
Happy Birthday, @Beyonce! You're an incredible role model, a phenomenal mother, and a wonderful friend. Hope you have an amazing day! –mo
— The First Lady (@FLOTUS) September 4, 2014
You know you’ve made it when the First Lady of the United States is wishing you a happy birthday on Twitter. While Queen Bey’s birthday isn’t quite a national holiday yet, as one student tried to convince her professor, with Michelle Obama on her side, maybe someday it could be!
