J.K. Rowling Opens Twitter Account
September 25, 2009, 01:31 PM
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
conversation at dinner last night
me: “JK has a twitter”
Laura: “Twitter’s just so you can stalk people”
me: “Yes, I’m stalking JKR from MONTANA”
both: … rofl
it was awesome… but the best part “pen and paper are my priority”
who care if she never tweets again, SHE’S WRITING!!! gets excited
I’m following her on my cell phone, so I get a text every time she updates!
I have to admit, I’m sad that she’s not updating every few minutes, but I’m glad that she’s writing! Inspiring…
To Dark Lord Hector:
"SHE"S WRITING SHE"S WRITING SHE"S WRITING!! I"M SO EXCITED!!!!"
Yes yes yes yes yes! That was my response too! We’re glad that your priority is pen and paper at the moment, Jo! Very glad.
Crap!!!!!! I totaly forgot my Twitter password and th password to my email account that it’s filed under!!!! I’ve been putting it off but I guess I’ll have to get another.
But she’s WRITING!!!!!!! EEEEEEeeee!!! I can’t wait to see what!!!!
I’ve been following her for the past couple days! I don’t twitter much but I read others all the time, it’s awesome to be able to read posts by JK Rowling, Tom Felton, and Mathew Lewis (and some other celebrities too)
