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:
Bell seemed to think that it was a good idea:
The offer appears serious, and the two will apparently be chatting about it.
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.
