Ted Cruz turns 47 years old today, and we could think of no better way to celebrate than taking a look back at some of his most electrifying moments on Twitter.

The Senator for Texas never shies away from an opportunity to make someone look foolish on the social media site, especially when it comes to left-leaning nonsense out there.

The latest example of that was Cruz’ comments against “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill over net neutrality of all things. He handled Hamill with ease, citing examples from his own franchise films to obliterate his argument.

Then there was that time Deadspin wrote a piece doubting that Ted Cruz can play basketball and tweeted the story out asking for photographic evidence.

Cruz responded in hilarious fashion with a photo of Duke’s star player Grayson Allen, who bears a striking resemblance to the Senator.

Deadspin was not in the mood for jokes.

But that didn’t stop Cruz from making them look childish.

That’s not the only time Cruz has landed a hilarious joke on social media. Back in May the Free Beacon tweeted out a strange, candid photo of senator Chuck Schumer and Ben Sasse, calling for a caption contest. Cruz might have had the best of them all.

The idea of Schumer rocking a RompHim is enough to make anyone laugh out loud.

It’s not often a United States Senator tweets like Cruz does, but those are just a few examples of what can happen when a politician lets loose and doesn’t take himself quite so serious for a second. And while we can’t be sure that Cruz fired these Twitter flames himself, we sure like to think so.

Here’s to another year of entertaining Twitter moments from the Texas Senator.
