    Elijah Wood, widely recognized as Frodo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings, has not only been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but also browsing Twitter for high turnip prices. The actor made headlines for asking Twitter user directedbyrian, who goes by Jessa, for entry onto their island to sell a few turnips (which are basically the Animal Crossing equivalent of stocks). While Elijah was on the island, fans couldn't stop gushing about his perfect island etiquette, like making sure it was okay before picking some fruit.

  • US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, popularly known as AOC, sought opportunities to visit strangers in the Animal Crossing universe, so she asked Twitter, "Hi there! Very new to this. I would like to visit other random people's islands and leave a doodle or note on their bulletin board. Can I do that? If so, how?" 

    Married couple Justin Mirsky and Laura Smykla were the first to welcome AOC. Mirsky told Buzzfeed, "I tweeted my code at her, and DMed her our code and also said, 'please come visit, my wife and son would be so excited!'" 

    AOC brought some fruit and left drawings on their bulletin board.
