After stealing our hearts with her ‘Harry Potter’ novels, J.K. Rowling has continued to impress, and today, she's celebrating her birthday (as is a certain Mr Harry Potter).

Her wizarding world spin-offs and adult crime novels have been a delight to read, but some of Jo’s best work contains just 140 characters. Yes, we’re talking about her Twitter.

Whether she’s crafting a hilarious response to a former child star’s new, raunchy photoshoot - Matthew Lewis, we’re looking at you - or kind words for a fan who’s having a tough time, J.K. Rowling always seems manages to form perfect responses.

Here are 12 of our favourite moments from J.K. Rowling’s Twitter…
