Harry Potter has been on many minds of late, and is apparently the subject of many a tweet. Twitter, the communication system that lets you reach people around the world in 140 characters or less, has released their Top Trends for 2009. As noted in the Washington Post with the full list here, "Harry Potter" was the Top Movie trend edging out communications about films "New Moon," "District 9," "Paranormal Activity," and "Star Trek."

Harry Potter really didn’t need this. Although this is just evidence of Harry’s widespread positive influence, Harry can stand on his own without all of these top 10 lists to justify him. There really isn’t a competition anywhere. This isn’t a contest. Harry Potter and everything that surrounds him isn’t just something that we faun over and fetishize because we think he is pretty. Harry Potter is every bit a part of us like our heart and our blood. He has grown with us and lived with us, and will always be part of our lives. Harry Potter is not the latest craze, or a fleeting fad. Harry Potter is forever.

@ rettophantom: I agree with you but it doesn’t hurt getting first even in silly lists like this one.

@ abandonedboyjon I agree with everything you say, I’m a casual Twilight fan as well.
And although I am so VERY happy Harry Potter did beat New Moon, I’m surprised, because New Moon has been trending almost every day since the trailer came out months ago – I didn’t see HP in the trends as often as I would have liked O.O
