Amanda Knox—who was initially convicted but later acquitted in the 2007 murder of roommate Meredith Kercher—was among those who came through with an election-themed firestarter of a tweet on Wednesday.

Addressing the undecided nature of the election, which—as expected—has seen Trump attempting to craft a false narrative about voting by mail, Knox said neither outcome would compare to "that four-year study abroad" she did in Italy.

Knox's story was chronicled in a critically acclaimed 2016 Netflix documentary, which later went on to bag a couple of Emmy nominations.
