Last night, Beyoncé fans across the globe tuned into Netflix for a Homecoming watch party. The charge was led by Jasmyn Lawson, the editorial manager behind Strong Black Lead and a prominent member of The Hive. Earlier this week, Lawson suggested that fans unite by watching the documentary of her 2018 Coachella performance together on the streaming service.

The day of the unofficial viewing, Beyoncé casually expressed her approval by retweeting Lawson's call for peace and love through virtual connection. Naturally, Lawson was completely floored by the subtle gesture from her absolute fave. As stated in another tweet, "I count on her to help me get through times like this." This move also marked the star's first-ever RT on the platform which is an honor in itself that Lawson did not take lightly. (Beyoncé has been on Twitter since 2009, but is rarely active on her feed.)

Given how Beyoncé fans can barely contain themselves when a surprise drop happens, the reactions to Lawson's big moment were just as over-the-top. As expected, most of the responses were overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic.

Twitter turned the whole interaction into a formal event and the hashtag #HOMEcoming trended in no time with 500,000 tweets racked up in the span of 24 hours. One fan even created a thread on the best dance breaks to learn during quarantine.
