Not a single thing in this world has been as divisive as the enigmatic Severus Snape. Dumbledore’s confidante and healer, yet apparently his murderer, Snape terrorized Harry Potter almost as much as He Who Must Not Be Named, gaining momentum as one of the most controversial characters ever to have existed.

But there’s a fun side to Snape not many knew existed. The Twitter account Professor Snape brings out all the dark online musings that may as well be put in The Great Hall.

Both savage and painfully hilarious, the tweets are making sure “no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations” are allowed on the thread.  Because if there’s anyone who can give that much-needed grain of salt to all the turmoil we are going through right now, it must be Snape. And a whopping 1.2 million followers show it works wonders.

If people can give birth wearing a mask, we should stop complaining about how stuffy it is wearing it. #Karens

Bored Panda contacted Taylor Nikolai, a social media connoisseur and self-proclaimed Snapchat guru who made a bunch of memes back in the 2010s. Taylor now runs the marketing company Viral Spark and he is also the mind behind the Professor Snape Twitter page.

In an interview, Taylor stuck to the whole Snape world concept and took the answers as his new alter ego. Thus, in a couple of deliberately short-spoken sentences, he presented himself: “My name is Severus Snape, and I am proud to say that I was a Hogwarts professor who worked his way to the top.”

Taylor then kept on explaining how Snape is such an iconic character because “I'm not only relatable on a fundamental human level, but I show people that you can redeem yourself after you have done wrong.”

Snape, aka Taylor, believes that the on-point and bold statements are precisely what makes his Twitter account so successful: “My tweets are so funny because they are true.”

He then added that the replies were done in Snape’s true voice and “it'd be ruining the fun to do any more.”

In this short meta-interview, we (kinda) get the point. Speaking, or rather tweeting, like Snape doesn’t do much, but the laconic voice combined with salty remarks give us a glimpse of what Snape would probably have been like if he had the internet.

That wasn't really her fault, though. The film writers seriously dropped that ball.
