To celebrate this Sunday’s finale of Game of Thrones Season 4, we decided to take a look at our favorite characters and transport them to 2014. Game of Thrones characters love being social, so it was only natural to think about which social media networks would be their favorites. Check it out below, and tweet us (@MBoothPR) which platform you think your favorite characters would use.
Summer may be here, but remember, winter is coming.
(Spoilers up through Season 4 Episode 9)
Tyrion Lannister: Our favorite imp would definitely be a tweeter. Tyrion’s affinity for wine and books would make for many retweetable nuggets of wisdom. For example: “It’s not easy being drunk all the time. If it were easy, everyone would do it.”
Joffrey Baratheon: Long may he reign! Given his narcissism and penchant for violence, the late King Joffrey would have had a fondness for displaying his mischievous antics (and selfies of course) on Instagram. His subjects would be under strict orders to “like” every picture, further building the ego of our favorite villain. If you’re going to follow Joff, expect plenty of beheaded bodies accompanied by the perfect filter.
Margaery Tyrell: Another dead king means another potential wedding for this Tyrell. What better place to look for a new wedding dress than Pinterest? At least now she doesn’t have to pin to her private quoteboard, “Twisted Things Joffrey Said.”
Lord Varys: The Spider would likely use the new social networks Whisper and Secret. These anonymous platforms would give the Master of Whispers all the information he needs on the comings and goings of Westeros’ citizens. He may even be tempted to leave a message of his own about his intricate plans…
Sansa Stark: Poor Sansa Stark would try to find solace in the News Feed on Facebook. Her posts would range from mourning the loss of her family to posing questions about what Littlefinger’s master plan really is. Unfortunately her engagement would be lackluster. (You can’t publicly show loyalty to a traitor.) Also, don’t share any Direwolf memes with Sansa; that would surely bring her to tears.
Tywin Lannister: The current Hand of the King would find great use in LinkedIn. Anyone important in Westeros would want to be connected to Tywin Lannister. If you visit his page, endorse one of his many skills, such as arranging marriages or insulting his children.
Arya Stark: This budding young warrior would be quite the standout on Snapchat. She has the spunk and confidence needed to send deadly snaps to all those on her kill list.
Daenerys Targaryen: Dany would clearly be a user of Tumblr. The visual nature of the platform would be perfect for documenting her journey and fight against injustice and slavery. Let’s not forget the occasional dragon GIF posted to inspire fear in her enemies.
Melisandre: The Red Priestess of the Lord of Light would use Vine to post 6 second clips of her magic and sorcery. Killer smoke babies would definitely go viral.
Bran Stark: The heir of the North who can’t walk would be a constant user of the new question and answer platform, Jelly. What is the three-eyed crow? Why am I turning into a wolf? Why is my whole family dead? How did I just take over the body of my good friend, Hodor?
Jon Snow: Do you really think Jon Snow is posting on social media? He’s stuck between a wall and hard place; Wildings and blue-eyed zombies are approaching. If he has to say anything, he does so via exclusive interviews with the New York Times.
Hodor: HODOR HODOR HODOR (translation: Hodor would use all the social networks, because, quite frankly, he has a lot to say).
Thanks to Bobby, Dana, Carrie, Devon, Gillian, Lauren
