Something strange is happening on Twitter since the Brazil election results came out.

In case you don't know, the people of Brazil have just elected a man, Jair Bolsonaro , as president who is described unflatteringly as the 'Brazilian Trump'.

What might be considered a bizarre reaction, the people of Brazil have cried out for help from one person in particular; Harry Potter author J.K Rowling.

All of the tweets are referencing Harry Potter in some way, invoking the feeling of surpassing evil and it's equal parts funny, charming and heart-wrenching to see.
