TWITTER WATCH: HAMILTON's Lin-Manuel Miranda's #HamOfThrones Mash-up Inspires Revolutionary GAME OF THRONES Tweets


The trend seems to have started months ago with the Twitter account @HamiltonAsTV, which sent out tweets and created memes that mashed up Lin-Manuel Miranda's smash hit Broadway musical with television favorites. 2,500 followers later, fans naturally started creating their own entries.

It wasn't long before HBO's long-running fantasy drama "Game of Thrones" was recruited as #HamofThrones.

But apparently, none of this had reached Lin-Manuel Miranda, so yesterday when he sent out his own #HamOfThrones he included the hashtag #HasThisBeenDone.

And that's all it took for Miranda's 448,000 Twitter followers to start matching up "Game of Thrones" moments with HAMILTON lyrics. #HamOfThrones has been blowing up the Internet since.

@Lin_Manuel get your right hand back. Yeah you gotta get your right hand back #HamOfThrones

Of course, Miranda's own right hand man, arranger, orchestrator and musical director Alex Lacamoire went the extra mile.
