Stranger Things finally revealed Robin's last name in the sneakiest way

Stranger Things writers revealed Robin's surname through a series of sneaky tweets.
Stranger Things 3 saw one of our favourite characters, Erica, bumped to series regular (Priah Ferguson absolutely crushed it), while new character Robin was also added to the clique. Robin, played by Maya Hawke, is Steve's ice cream slinging co-worker and fellow Scoops Troop member. But what is Robin's last name on Stranger Things?
We never really find out her surname in the series but, thanks to the Stranger Things writers, we actually know what it is.
What is Robin's last name on Stranger Things?
Are y'all ready? Robin's last name is... BUCKLEY.
Yes, Robin's surname is Buckley and we know this because the official Stranger Things Writers Twitter account has been stealthily teasing the tidbit about one of the show's new fan favourites.
The account tweeted a hint about Robin's last name this week, writing: "Better pay more attention we already told you Robin's last name."

Eagle-eyed fans then noticed that the account had been sharing some interesting posts. In seven fairly innocuous tweets they spelled out "Buckley", using the first letter of each word.
kudos to this genius who figured out what we were doing like four tweets ago, y’all are on it! https://t.co/n0FMZG7ZzP— Stranger Writers (@strangerwriters) July 16, 2019
"Ya'll are demons on earth," one fan wrote once they'd cracked it.
This is a level of stealth worthy of the Scoops Troop, themselves.
We're officially the president of the Robin BUCKLEY fan club, but we just wonder why her last name wasn't revealed in the series. That being said... it's better late than never.
