Tweeting Tom Felton


Mar 03, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

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 that he is now part of the very popular online short messaging service, and you can follow Tom’s official Twitter via this link (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!

Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Tom looks SO good. He's cute (: As for Emma going to Yale - that'd be cool if she went =]Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: It's like they doused him with the fake blood! I like that he looks so proud too.Avatar Imagemariami says: That's so cool. My favorite people on twitter are Shaq and Rainn Wilson. I look forward to reading his tweets. Avatar Imagefirekeeper says: Wow those are some really awesome pictures.Avatar ImageMelissa Anelli says: I'm glad to see he's joined the wondrous world of Twitter, lol. :)Avatar ImageZivlok says: 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.Avatar Imagemomentofzen says: Wooo Twitter! I got entirely too excited about this, lol.Avatar Imageheartless_wench says: 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.Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool! I know nothing about Twitter, but that's cool anyway. I'm looking forward to seeing him in HBP! Avatar Imagegaminette says: 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_oAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool! I know nothing about Twitter, but that's cool anyway. I'm looking forward to seeing him in HBP! Avatar Imagebookishgal says: Awesome!Avatar ImageMahayana says: 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. Avatar ImageMiss Smarticle says: *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.)Avatar ImageIWannaBeAWeasley says: 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!Avatar Imagesnapealicious says: I'm kinda embarrassed how excited this made me.Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Is it sad that I didn't know about Twitter until a couple of weeks ago? Well, it's nice Tom likes to communicate with fans. Avatar ImageProfKnight says: Tom dont do it it'll take your life over :D Avatar Imageedmund says: Very cool, glad to see Potter Actors joining the many actors on twitter, it's a great way to actually develop a community of fans instead of just be admired from afar. The Septumsempra (at least I assume that's what that is) on the other hand, creepy!Avatar Imagestevenk12468 says: LoL...I actually didn't know he sings. :p He's not the best, but he has a natural talent. I liked the videos on Avatar ImageoOoVettyoOo says: i so saved the picture and made a group about this lolAvatar Imagetaekwondochik44 says: *goes to follow Tom Felton* that's really awesome that he tweets about eating pancakes! that just shows how down to earth he is. he doesn't have public relations ppl tweeting for him! Avatar Imageafsha_j says: Whoa!!wat was dat Snap ab' wonder his mom dint lyk it xDAvatar Imagecheekysnake09 says: Sweet! Now we need all the actors using twitter. Maybe he'll update as much as Stephen Fry does. :P If Emma wants to continue acting, I don't think Yale would be the right choice. Not doubting her intelligence, but that would be lots of work.Avatar ImageGF_of_Seamus says: I can't express the nerdiness I felt when I clicked the follow button on his twitter page. oh dear.Avatar Imageredfan4ever says: awesome he got a twitter. now dan, emma and rupert should get one.Avatar Imagepennynickles says: i am totally following him now.Avatar ImageMoody One says: I wished I could get Twitter to work on my phone. : ( Avatar ImageBradyboy says: That's really cool.Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: i just picked my jaw off the floor after staring at that picture for the past five minutes.. OMG!!!! he looks smokin' hot, Caliente.. Yup i just said hot in spanish and i don't bring my spanish out just for anyone, lol.. i'm saving that picture under my faves.. WOW!!!!Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: also loved the blood picture.. it was crzy.. Avatar Imagebuthagrid says: Hmm... I just made a twitter account like 2 days ago to follow leaky.... crazy. I have posted this before and I'll say it again.... him in front of that mirror! Gets me every time!Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: that picture is crazy! how exciting, i just signed up for twitter today ( and it wasn't bc of tom, it was bc they mentioned it on pottersplosion) and i already have a celeb ha ha ha!Avatar Imageaccio_salmon says: His Twitter is ten times funnier if you picture Draco saying it. Especially the pancake one.Avatar Imageelfinblaze says: Ooh, those are some nice pictures. Very nice.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: "lovely" ops i thing hes hot in the photo. spit the blood.Avatar Imageangelac123 says: Cool...very exciting news!! :DAvatar ImageProfessorPotter says: Ha, just read his first day of twitter. He just watched The Trueman Show and it freaked him out! Good film though. Hi picture of filming on last day...could that be a spoiler!?! I mean all that fake blood on him doesnt bode well for the character plays, lol. When I am famous, I will get a twitter account. Until then, though, I have no idea why anyone would want to follow me around. Besides, I would be just typing: "I am now on MyLeaky." ;)Avatar ImageMr_J says: Ok, the twitter-users are starting to pile up, looks like I should be getting an account...Avatar ImageSidish_black6 says: ok, i'm joinin twitter !!!! Avatar ImageGraymayne says: Nice studio portrait. Who noticed the brown contact lenses in the bloody chest photo? Avatar ImageErinM says: Cool pic!

I just hope that he does not become addicted and feel as though it is important to tell us that he is presently drinking a bottle of soda, as though that is something of significant of us! As has happened to some people I know, tragically.Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: Cool! Another movie with an HP actor in it! Now I have to add 13 Hours to my list . . .
