Harry Potter stars on Twitter
The world of wizarding has met the muggle invention of Twitter with magical results for Harry Potter fans. Even J.K. Rowling has a Twitter account although the author has only tweeted six times since she first signed on in September of 2009. Rowling’s latest tweet in February made her fans happy though since she’s apparently hard at work writing. “This is the real me, but you won’t be hearing from me often I’m afraid, as pen and paper are STILL my priority at the moment,” she wrote, reiterating her previous tweets.
A slew of Harry Potter stars who have appeared in the movies also have Twitter accounts and fans can keep up with their current and future projects. Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, has made some major announcements on Twitter as well as Facebook, including her haircut heard round the world last year and her latest fashion projects.
Several Harry Potter stars have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts as the final film approaches and the series comes to an end this summer. Tom Felton (aka Draco Malfoy) recently tweeted: “Very excited and yet kinda sad about coming up to promoting the last HP. Can’t wait to see the film though! Will be epic.” Our thoughts exactly!
Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood on screen, just joined the Twitter universe with this tweet: “Here I am, reluctantly tiptoeing into the world of twitter at last…helloooo!” She joins other Harry Potter stars on Twitter like Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Oliver and James Phelps who play the Weasley twins. James Phelps’ Twitter bio reads, “That guy who dyed his hair ginger for 10 years,” while Matthew Lewis describes himself as a “Northern layabout that watches a lot of TV, plays guitar, sometimes acts.”
