Top Ten Tuesday – Characters I’d Follow on Social Media

“Abandon all hope ye who enter here…”

First line in American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

Hi, guys and welcome to my Top Ten Tuesday post for the week. This week’s topic is so awesome: Characters I’d follow on social media. I had way too many options for this but I managed to narrow it down to 10. 

I’ve picked characters from worlds that don’t have social media (mainly fantasy books) and tried to imagine them in our real life world. For each character I’ve specified on which platform they have their account and what kind of content they post. Hope you enjoy!


Wit (The Stormlight Archive)

Social media: Twitter

Type of content: Comedic outbursts that are often offensive. Somtimes, some profound saying that you don’t completely understand but will make you question everything you thought you knew.

Nikolai Lantsov (The Grisha Verse)

Social media: Instagram

Type of content: Mostly selfies (and who would complain) but also pictures of friends caught in embarrasing situations. The occasional political statement.

Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games)

Social media: YouTube

Type of content: Baking tutorials. Learn how to bake bread with Peeta. Also, cake decorating.

Dandelion (The Witcher)

Social media: YouTube

Type of content: Singing his own songs, often about some dude named “Geralt”. Very intriguing stuff. He also tells stories (but be aware that he will go off on a tangent quite a lot).

Magnus Bane (The Shadowhunter Chronicles)

Social media: YouTube

Type of content: A lifestyle channel. He talks about fashion, gossip and home life. Expect all kinds of guests (seriously, ALL kinds) but espcially family members. Among his followers there has for some reason been a huge demand for a specific video: The Boyfriend Tag.

Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre)

Social media: Blog

Type of content: Her own detailed life experiences. Very relevant if you’ve ever wanted to become a governess. Her blog also has a special feature called “This Month’s Creepy Marriage Proposal” (also referred to as TMCMP).

Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter)

Social media: Twitter

Type of content: Words of wisdom is the main thing you can expect from him. However, sometimes he will post something that doesn’t make sense. Not even to him.

Haymitch Abernathy (The Hunger Games)

Social media: Twitter

Type of content: Random exclamations that makes you wonder whether he was sober or not when writing it (he wasn’t). Most of them are fun but you’ll also see him question those in power in a way he probably shouldn’t.

Fred and George Weasley (Harry Potter)

Social media: YouTube

Type of content: Pranks on friends, family members and strangers. A lot of the pranks involve people eating something weird (the twins never really explain what) and then they have funny reactions. Well, fun for the people watching at least.

Tyrion Lannister (A Song of Ice and Fire)

Social media: Twitter

Type of content: Roasting people he doesn’t like. He gets very creative with his insults. He mixes it up with some serious political statements and proposals once in a while. Those are mostly ignored.

There you have my post for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic. I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun putting a post together. Now I’m just sad that none of these accounts actually exist. But oh well, I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know your favorite and who you’d follow in the comments.

  1. Oooh, Dandelion’s a good one! I would follow the heck out of him, and I’m sure he’d be a huge YouTube hit. I would also absolutely LOVE to be able to follow Fred and George and keep up with all their hijinks (you know, from a safe distance, of course).

    Here’s my TTT post.

  2. I would totally subscribe to Magnus Bane, Peeta Mellark and Fred and George on Youtube! Also, Haymitch and Dumbledore would be AMAZING on Twitter! Honestly your answers were SO on point! Anyway, I hope you’re having an amazing day 🙂
