It seems too good to be true, but an eighth Harry Potter book will be available this summer. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child — based off of the script for a play of the same name, and the book is essentially the script in an accessible form — is a welcome return to the wizarding world for author J.K. Rowling.

However, Rowling's presence has been felt in a similar magical world: Twitter. For years, she's championed for feminism and LGBTQ rights, taking out any ignorant cave trolls in her way. Here are some of her best Twitter moments.

She's supported the gay marriage legalization in neighboring Ireland:

As a follow-up, she challenged the highly controversial and much maligned Westboro Baptist Church for honing in on her — and absolutely destroyed them:
.@WBCsigns Alas, the sheer awesomeness of such a union in such a place would blow your tiny bigoted minds out of your thick sloping skulls.

Similarly, when Rowling cheered on Serena Williams for capturing her sixth Wimbledon title, she defended the tennis star from a misogynistic tweeter, who said the reason Williams is successful is because she's "built like a man."

As the author of one of the best fantasy series of all time, Rowling has a huge on social media, and she's used it to champion and support important social causes. Finally, a note of caution for the trolls and misogynists: Don't mess with her, unless you want your verbal takedown illuminated in the digital space for all to see.
