Twitter, the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Way
July 20, 2009, 02:36 PM
For fans of Twitter, the popular online social communication network, WB has just launched a cool new way to put errrm some magic in those Tweets, Half-Blood Prince style! Check it out!
This is soo cool already tried it out Sweet!!!
That’s pretty cool. I might finally have to give in and get a twitter account.
Oh my gosh, that’s SO FUN :D
Great, more reasons to text during the movie. Thanks, WB. Not.
i sent one to my fiancé just now!
for those wondering: what it does is that it gives you a choice of 4 animations you can send to one of your twitter friends. i sent Amortentia to Bryan, which was a cute animation of a heart forming, followed by a short message you get to choose.
there is also Unbreakable Vow, Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder and Oppugno. you choose one and a message to go with it (from a selection of like 5 messages), and it asks you to choose someone from your friends list (either type it in or browse). then it will send a DM (direct message) to that person with a link. the link takes them to what looks like their page (though with the default background), which then gets a flash animation set on top of it.
before you choose which animation to use, you can choose to preview what it will look like. you can also choose for it to update your Twitter status saying that you just used some magic, and where people can do it for themselves (i.e. free advertising for WB, lol).
it’s pretty simple and kind of useless, but it’s cute! at least they’ve tried something new.
Nice. I don’t know if the person I sent it to uses Twitter much. I need fellow Harry Potter fans to follow me at @CandyCane23049 and then I will follow you. I want to see how it looks
it won’t work for me for some reason
HA! That was fun… :)
Wonder why it won’t let me log in? I am using my twitter username and password…keeps me giving me log in errors. Does sound like fun though!
I didn’t really like it. It is not that fun to me.
WOW. This is awesome!
CAN’T WAIT FR DH!!
i really enjoyed this. though my followers recieving a peruvian instant darkness powder would probably not understand it. sigh…the people who dont love harry as much as we do. its sad : ’ (
Half Blood Twits…
