J.K. Rowling Opens Twitter Account

It's #followfriday on Leaky! Or as many readers have called it: the best #followfriday ever!

Reader Cassandra wrote in to tell us that J.K. Rowling apparently has a Twitter account here, at username @jk_rowling. While Twitter calls it a verified account, we checked, just to be sure, and have received confirmation: it is Jo. She opened it to put an end to all the fake ones and won't be twittering often.

The account seems to have been opened on Sept. 17 and reads:

I am told that people have been twittering on my behalf, so I thought a brief visit was in order just to prevent any more confusion! However, I should flag up now that although I could twitter endlessly, I'm afraid you won't be hearing from me very often, as pen and paper is my priority at the moment

Remember you can follow Leaky at @leaky!

Pen and paper?!? Oh my gosh! I think that part of me that died a little after Deathly Hallows came as coming back to life a little bit. Sh-she’s writing? Oh my gosh! I am getting a Twitter just to follow Jo. I’ve gotten a couple Twitter accounts before but I’ve never been able to work out how to use it!
