After a fall at the Supreme Court on Wednesday left Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with three broken ribs, thousands of people took to Twitter to wish a full and speedy recovery to the 85-year-old justice.
A statement from the Supreme Court Office of Public Information explained that Ginsburg went to her home on Wednesday evening after the fall in her office but was admitted to the hospital at George Washington University on Thursday morning for observation and treatment after experiencing discomfort overnight.
Both politicians and adoring fans took to Twitter after the news broke on Thursday to offer support for Ginsburg.
Valerie Jarrett called Ginsburg “a true force of nature” and wished her a speedy recovery:

And Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) suggested that she could take a break from her famous workout routine for just a bit:
Wishing good health and an easy recovery to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg…we all saw your workout regimen on @StephenAtHome, but maybe take it easy for a bit.

“We need you more than ever now,” former Sen. Barbara Boxer wrote. Boxer was a member of the Senate when Ginsburg was first nominated to the court by former President Bill Clinton in 1993.
