Ryan Reynolds is The King of Twitter but Dwayne Johnson also knows how to do social media right.

It’s the blockbuster king’s 46th birthday today and we decided to mark the occasion by looking back on some of the best messages, videos, pics and exchanges he has shared on Instagram and Twitter over the last couple of years.

With some being super sweet and others laugh-out-loud funny, they make it easy to see why the guy is the superstar that he is.


1. When he opened up about his battle with depression

The actor followed up an interview in which he revealed his decades-long struggle with depression, having witnessed his mother's failed suicide attempt as a teenager, with this message for fans.


2. When him and Davina McCall exchanged some adorable tweets

It followed an interview in which Davina McCall quelled the rumours that she was sending "secret" messages to Dwayne Johnson.


3. When he slammed a Tweeter who criticised Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

And then said Tweeter showed his true love for The Rock.




4. And when he slammed another criticising Tweeter

Again, what could have been an aggressive exchange turned to love and affection. How does he do it??





5. Whenever he shows love for his kids

We especially loved this vid from International Women’s Day of his daughter Jasmine.


6. And the gentler side of his persona

This pic of his newborn Tiana Gia broke our hearts.


Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

7. How he always reaches out to thank fans

Dwayne always remembers the people who made him the star he is, and he is genuinely grateful.


8. When he does the extra little things for fans

Like this time when he stopped traffic just to meet a fan.


9. When he teased DC fans posing with Henry Cavill

Seriously, when is Black Adam hitting the big screen because we don’t know how much longer we can wait.


10. When he shared an Irish cartoonist’s doodle

That was a good day to be Irish.
