Put on some Fall Out Boy and await the next tweet from @KyloR3n.

The wildly popular parody Twitter account based on a decidedly emo interpretation of former Girls highlight and current Star Wars icon Adam Driver's character has returned to mark the release of The Last Jedi. Though @KyloR3n is only two tweets deep at the time of this writing, it's comforting to know his lowercase revelations and general musings will once again be crowding out the timelines of nearly 780,000 followers for at least the next few months.

dear diary

Emo Kylo Ren was an active presence surrounding the release of The Force Awakens back in 2015 (and well into 2016), routinely delivering quick gems about Holden Caulfield, Elliott Smith, craft beers, and other items of interest to a young and misunderstood Knights of Ren master.

Prior to Thursday night's return, @KyloR3n had only tweeted three times this year.

Driver—who is in no way involved with the Emo Kylo Ren account—was faced with the stark reality of defining his common descriptor back in November, asking Rolling Stone, "What is emo?" in their Last Jedi cover story. To be fair, the word does indeed mean different things to different people. Though the term first rose to prominence with bands like Embrace before later getting attached to more pop-forward work by '00s breakouts like Fall Out Boy, the word—in mainstream discussions, anyway—is now often used as a catch-all term for anything (or anyone) viewed as outwardly emotional and clad in dark clothing.

But I digress.

The Last Jedi is in theaters now. Hopefully you already knew that.
