Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past couple weeks, you’ve probably heard of and/or watched Leslie Jones cover the Olympics on Twitter. In fact, I feel like more people paid attention to her amazing coverage than any news publication out there.

Not only did her Olympic coverage garner more than 276 MILLION impressions, it also gave her more than 217,000 followers in only 17 days!

Furthermore, the Ghostbusters actress had over 35-million views on her Twitter videos. Leslie Jones should get an honorary gold medal for her absolutely amazing coverage!

Like the time she cheered HARD for Simone Manuel, the first African American woman to win a gold medal in swimming.

And when she BECAME an Olympian.

Remember when she found out she was going to Rio?

And when she hung out with some of the USA swim team?

And finally, when she cheered on Michael Phelps after he won his *22nd* Olympic medal.
