Turns out tweets sound better out loud... especially when read by Game Of Thrones actor Jonathan Pryce

Sometimes things just sound better out loud than they do written down – take tweets, for example.

In Audible’s first video as part of their ‘Voices Of Interest’ series, they teamed up with presenter Greg James and acclaimed Shakespearian actor – and the High Sparrow himself – Jonathan Pryce to celebrate the power of voice.

The Game Of Thrones actor did a sterling job of reading out such famous tweets as Harry Styles “avocado ruins a lot of great sandwiches” and Ed Balls’s “Ed Balls”.

However, things began to unravel as Jonathan read Geri Halliwell’s tweet that reads: “That wind is just lovely can you feel it? (No not ur bottom burp kind)”. The star erupted into fits of laughter.

Not that we blame him.
