Donald Trump blocked Stephen King on Twitter, so J.K. Rowling stepped in

Two popular authors teamed up digitally against Donald Trump on Tuesday in a series of tweets that's got the internet talking. 

The Twitter drama unfolded when popular horror writer Stephen King tweeted claiming the president had blocked him on the social networking site. 

King, an outspoken critic of the president, hasn't held back his online judgment in the past.

Just hours before tweeting about getting blocked, King mocked Trump's unusually praise-filled Cabinet meeting held on Monday. The author's account is full of similar critiques of the commander in chief:

But just after King announced his banishment from the president's Twitter following, a fellow author came to his rescue.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling quoted King's tweet, saying she would send Trump's posts to him. 

Rowling is also a vocal opponent of Trump.

The internet responded accordingly.
