Tweeting Tom Felton

Here is an offbeat, yet rather cool piece of news tonight: actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) has joined the legions of us on Twitter. The actor confirmed to Feltbeats.com that he is now part of the very popular online short messaging service, and you can follow Tom's official Twitter via this link http://twitter.com/tomfelton (you can also see a very recent picture of the actor as he is currently filming a new movie 13 hours). Finally Feltbeats has a fantastic new photo of the actor taken as part of a professional photoshoot for Heat Radio. You can learn more about Twitter here, as well as follow Leaky here, PotterCast here and LeakyCon 2009 here.

On a related note, there are a variety of media outlets carrying the story that actress Emma Watson has supposedly announced that she has been accepted into Yale, and this claim was made via Twitter.  Please note: the Twitter account in question is under an assumed name, and is not an open public one like so many of the celebrities officially on Twitter such as Tom Felton, Stephen Fry, Ashton Kutcher etc, so please keep this in the rumor category for now.  TLC is working to obtain veracity of this claim, and will update with more when we can.

Thanks so much to Feltbeats.com!

Tom looks SO good. He’s cute (:

As for Emma going to Yale – that’d be cool if she went =]

It’s like they doused him with the fake blood! I like that he looks so proud too.

That’s so cool. My favorite people on twitter are Shaq and Rainn Wilson. I look forward to reading his tweets.

I just have to say that I love the word veracity. It needs to be used more often.

Also, that picture is scary but kinda cool.

Um… I just dont understand. What’s so great about twitter? I’m not sure I get it. Why would I need to know that someone is about to sit down to dinner, or that they’ve gone shopping? Can someone help? I’m horribly uneducated.

Cool! I know nothing about Twitter, but that’s cool anyway. I’m looking forward to seeing him in HBP!

OH NO!! Tom noooooo!!!

Sorry – Twitter tweetage has taken over my eljay friends page. I’m so not into the minutiae of people’s lives. Even if it is Tom Felton’s. OK. Maybe not. o_o

I’m happy for Tom that he’s working on a new movie. And I thought the picture was pretty cool. :-) I’m glad he’s having a good time.

thinks about making a Twitter account just because Tom has one …. Nah. Though it is very tempting. _ That movie 13 Hours seems really good though. From his looks in the last scene, it seems very action-y.

Congratulations to Emma for getting into Yale! (Law School? Hm.)

I just looked at Tom’s twitter page and I think it is hilarious that he was tweeting about eating pancakes. Some celebrities twitter pages are updated by PR people, etc. I’m thinking Tom’s is actually done by him. I doubt a PR person would be talking about what he was eating for breakfast. That’s awesome!
