YA world explodes as J.K. Rowling tweets John Green


Well, maybe explodes is a strong world. But it’s certainly worth an awwww.

J.K. Rowling responded to a Tweet sent by John Green on May 8th, and it’s so cute, we felt we had to share it.

There is no need to explain who either author is. The only YA author more well-known than Green (author of The Fault In Our Stars) is Rowling (author of the Harry Potter series). Both Green and Rowling spend time chatting with their fans online, but while Green often chats with other authors, this is the first time I know of that Rowling has replied directly to a compliment paid her by a fellow YA author.

It’s also no secret that Green is a huge Harry Potter fan – he’s mentioned it actively on his Vlogbrothers channel on YouTube. No doubt he was geeking out as much as any of us would if noticed by J.K. Rowling.

What would you do if Rowling responded to your Tweet? Sound off in the comments below!
