Leslie Jones can be hilarious on Twitter, especially when she is live-tweeting shows like Game of Thrones. She’s started doing the same thing for the Rio Olympics with hilarious results, which prompted Jim Bell, NBC’s executive producer for the games to invite her down to help out.
First, let’s take a look at some of Jones’ funniest tweets (so far!):

That’s just a small taste of what her feed has been like the past couple of days. One of her followers, Mike Shoemaker tweeted at Bell, suggesting that they invite her down to Rio:
note to my friends @jfb & #nbcolympics:— Mike Shoemaker (@shoemakermike) August 7, 2016
Get @Lesdoggg to Rio & give her a microphone.

Bell seemed to think that it was a good idea:
@jfb @shoemakermike hmmmm don't play cause y'all need me! I would have the whole Olympics pumped!!— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) August 7, 2016
@shoemakermike OK @Lesdoggg you're officially invited to Rio. Want to come?— Jim Bell (@jfb) August 7, 2016
The offer appears serious, and the two will apparently be chatting about it.
@Lesdoggg wow is this what good Twitter feels like? Great call @shoemakermike TY. Leslie will connect wu tomorrow. Everyone else stay tuned!— Jim Bell (@jfb) August 7, 2016
Hopefully, we’ll get to see Jones doing this live before too long. Even if it doesn’t pan out, it’s clear her Twitter feed is going to be the place to get the best commentary.
