Twitter may have a reputation for being full or fake accounts, bots and trolls, but it also has many very quick-witted people who brighten up the day by their swift responses.

Last week a fan of singer Taylor Swift posted what he/she assumed was a rhetorical question:

“Name a badder bitch than Taylor Swift.”

And so Twitter users did – resulting in many thousands of tweets about history’s “baddest bitches”, including many unsung heroines. Here’s just a few examples:

Jeanne de Clisson, murderous French aristocrat-turned-pirate who named her ship My Revenge after the French king executed her husband. She spent the next decade killing all the French crews she encountered, sparing only 1 sailor to relay her message of vengeance (@greg_jenner)

Mariya Vasilyevna Oktyabrskaya: her husband was killed by the Nazis in 1941 during Operation Barbarossa. She went to the Soviet gov’t and demanded to get a tank to kill Nazis. The gov’t relented and she killed Nazis with her tank. (@shonan_naminori)

Julie d’Aubigny was a French opera singer/swordswoman in the 1600s who killed over ten men in duels over other women and once took holy vows so she could break into a nunnery, sleep with a blonde nun, then burned the church down and escaped with her (@Swordwields)

Fantastic! Read more responses at the source link below.
