As Dionne Warwick continues to dominate Twitter, she’s using her power to make big moves. The 80-year-old singer announced that she is ready to turn her life into a Netflix series, and she has already picked the perfect person to play her.

Warwick, who became a Twitter sensation earlier this month when she trolled artists with “the” in their name, made a video about the potential series and posted it to Twitter. “This is a case for @netflix,” she captioned the video, “Please don’t ask who I would cast to play me as it would obviously be @TEYANATAYLOR.” In the video, Warwick asked her followers if they would watch the series, adding, “I want you to be honest now.” The answer is yes, Dionne, yes!

Taylor, who recently announced she's "retiring" from music, quoted Warwick's tweet with,"🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾." The official Twitter account for Netflix was quick to respond, writing, "taking ✍️ notes ✍️.." The six-time Grammy winner told Netflix she'd call them.

Fans of Warwick and Taylor took to Twitter to discuss how perfect the casting for the potential series would be.

The "I Say A Little Prayer" singer had tweeted about Taylor the day before. She shared a photo of Taylor and wrote, "it runs in the family." Taylor quoted the tweet, writing, "Period. 🤎"

Last January, one fan suggested that Taylor and Warwick "both look like Offset." It was clear that the "That's What Friends Are For" singer did not like the comparison to the Migos rapper. She responded, "Don't."

Warwick continues to make money moves on Twitter, and it's actually extremely impressive. After trolling Chance The Rapper about his name, the pair decided to team up together in the studio to release a new single for charity. The single, titled “Nothing’s Impossible,” will support the Hunger Not Impossible initiative.

It will be produced by the "Walk on By" singer's son Damon Elliot. “My Mom and I had a moment to speak with Chance after she Tweeted him about the word 'The' in his name,” said Elliott in a statement. “They had such an amazing conversation that led to them discussing the Hunger Not Impossible initiative (www.notimpossible.com) – they’ll receive portions of proceeds from her upcoming 80th birthday/holiday celebration, which will be streamed live on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 7 pm EST. The result of our conversation with Chance is this new single we’ll be recording soon, and we’re all looking forward to this collaboration.”

The Twitter icon also shared her thoughts on Timothée Chalamet's SNL sketch called “The Dionne Warwick Talk Show.” Warwick was played by Ego Nwodim, who interviewed Chalamet dressed as Harry Styles, and she had no idea who he was. When he explained to her that his song "Watermelon Sugar" has been interpreted as an ode to oral sex on a woman, Dionne got very excited.

The real-life Warwick said that the sketch was "a hilarious birthday gift" and thanked SNL. "That young lady's impression of me was very good," she added. In another tweet directed at Nwodim, she wrote, "You did a wonderful job, baby. You are a star."

Nwodim said that Warwick's words made her cry. "Tweets are not my own, but they are making me cry, and thus, have found their way to main," she wrote. "Extremely touched by Ms. Dionne’s kindness and generosity of spirit. so glad I did her proud 🙏🏾." Dionne Warwick's Twitter account is the gift that keeps on giving, and we're excited to see what moves she makes next.
