It turns out we were right to be over the moon about legendary Broadway diva Patti LuPone's first tweet last month, because the queen has issued another royal decree.
At first, LuPone tweeted her dismay at the "dumbing down of America," and how it's permeating into theatre with a lack of trained performers. Then—with no apparent correlation—the tweet turned to 2020.

People hoped that Buttigieg's husband (and die-hard LuPone fan), Chasten Buttigieg, was sitting down when he read the tweet.

@PattiLuPone This is the most #LuPone thing to ever #LuPone. Also, someone check and make sure @Chas10Buttigieg is still alive...— Bryan Songy (@Bryan Songy)1557627423.0
Surprisingly, neither Buttigieg has responded, but we're sure they feel the love.
This isn't the only tweet from the queen that's featured some prime content either. She recently posted about her arrival in St. Louis, Missouri (and a former lover she had there).

Twitter has become a much better place with LuPone.
