She then added another tweet, tagging her friend, ‘it’s @kristinbhopkins and honestly the power of her charisma has always terrified me!!’ 

She then re-enacted part of their conversation from the subway that night, stating, ‘girl, this man is creepy. He’s hitting on you.’ ‘how could he possibly be hitting on me?? he told me maybe i could babysit for his daughter. LOL.’

Battle concluded her thread with a final tweet, adding, ‘run-on sentences are very funny to me, punctuation is a prison — i didn’t know the man was hitting on me, he was a rando we met at the event, she stayed with me so he’d leave me alone and that’s all folks yay another run-on.’

Hopkins would ultimately retweet the first tweet in Battle’s thread, with the hashtag #TheBachelor.

It seems this gained her a substantial amount of new followers, which Hopkins addressed in another tweet.

‘So many new friends here thanks to the wonderful @SydneyBattle. Happy Sunday to you all! This is a fun and positive space, sprinkled with some petty here and there. Let’s get it,’ Hopkins said.

Hopkins’ bio on The Bachelor website describes her as, ‘fiercely loyal, intelligent and credits her unmatched work ethic to her incredible mother who raised her.’

She is looking for someone who isn’t afraid to be ‘openly affectionate,’ since being with her means, ‘personal space goes out the window.’ 

The lawyer is ultimately looking for someone, ‘who will let her be their biggest cheerleader and who will in turn be the same for her.’
