The Star Wars superstar has long been using his account to tweet out various cool behind-the-scenes facts about his many iconic roles, as well as to engage directly with fans to answer their burning questions:

But he’s also just, like, genuinely hilarious on there! Seriously, his Twitter account is an absolute delight to scroll through. If you’re ever in need of a smile, I highly suggest you follow him:

Yes, you read that correctly.

The whole thing started on Sunday after a fan suggested that Mark could “just tweet ‘Mark Hamill'” and he’d “get thousands of likes.” Never one to shy away from testing a theory, he did just that. And, sure enough, the likes started rollin’ in by the (tens of) thousands:

The tweet currently has well over 500k likes as of this morning.

Then, other celebs got involved to see if tweeting “Mark Hamill” would result in thousands of likes for them, too:
