It is Half-Blood Prince Day! The fandom is taking over Twitter. Join in!


Jul 14, 2009

Posted by Melissa Anelli

Today is the day that the many thousands of us around the country will be lining up to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince; it’s been two years since we saw an HP film. The last time we did this we were only a week away from the release of the seventh book.
The HP Alliance is spearheading a campaign today to help the presence and good spirit of Harry Potter fans make an impact worldwide: What Would Dumbledore Do got a half-start last week but thanks to other important world activities didn’t quite track the trending topics. So this is our last chance, guys – get ready.
It’s all very simple. First, in all your tweets today tack this phrase onto the end of it: “#dumbledore” (minus the quotes). The “#dumbledore” tag will start ratcheting the phrase up the ranks and the link will help spread the word. Then, when you see the film, make sure you say something like this (with the phrase Harry Potter in it as well):
Just about to see Harry Potter – in honor of #dumbledore we are taking over Twitter! saw Harry Potter – in honor of #dumbledore we are taking over Twitter! Potter was awesome! In honor of #dumbledore we are taking over Twitter! #dumbledore
VERY IMPORTANT: We will all be tweeting simultaneously AT 8:59pm PST – or 11:59pm EST! No matter what you are doing make a tweet at that moment!
You get the idea – anything with the phrase Harry Potter and the Dumbledore tag, and, if you can, the link. The Dumbledore tag is the most important part!
Let’s do it! Starting now!

Avatar ImageDorisTLC says: If you are worried about forgetting, you can use Twitter Timer. Just DM it to send you a message at a certain time and it will remind you to tweet! It's free and it makes it easy to remember to do things.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Tweet tweet...Avatar ImagePaintTheSky says: Wooo 9 hrs and 42 min. on the east coast!!Avatar Imagesalame says: 3 and a half hours and i'll be seeing HBP!

Harry Potter is only on the second position! We have to CHANGE that :)Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: Are there any midnight showings in UK? I'd love to hear from anyone who's able to see it then. I'm on the US east coast. Only 5 hours difference. I'll be up when you get home.Avatar Imagepinkmoosely says: Aaaaaaaaagh! I think thats 04:59AM in the UK I'll never be awake for that? Oh well I have been twittering with #Dumbledore anyway. Have a great time everyone off to see HBP tonight, no midnight showings here so I have a 22h wait still to go. Avatar ImageIt must be bunnies says: No midnight showings where I am in Scotland so I have to wait 24 hours. Oh well, as Harry Potter fans we are used to the waiting! Tweeting Dumbledore!Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: Aww :P. 11:59? I'll be sitting in the theater waiting for the previews for HBP to start. -7hours-Avatar Imagepinkmoosely says: Shouldn't we try and twitter up some help from celebrity twitterers like Stephen Fry & Tom Felton? they have LOADS of followers who could help spread the good word (that is #Dumbledore) And they are Potter People, like us !!!Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Awesome! I just tweeted for Dumbledore too. :)Avatar ImageOuroboros says: Time to go. EST for the win! I'm heading out in a few hours when my mother gets back. I'll try her over to the city, we'll chill out in BAM and then we'll go. I can't wait to see all the crazy dressed people like me spotting Potter stuff. They better be around. Otherwise, won't I look foolish? ; x But it'll be worth it. ( Go, Slytherin! )Avatar ImagePadfootLover4ever says: Well at 11:59 I will be at the movies tonight and hopefully I can borrow a phone from someone who is going with me so I can tweet.Avatar ImageDorisTLC says: pinkmoosely That's a great idea and many of us have been doing that. You can check the feed for #Dumbledore here on Twitter. This is the public feed, so if your account is protected your tweets won't show up on this public feed on Twitter unless someone retweets you. If you are playing along please make sure you've added your Twitter account into your MyLeaky profile! ; )Avatar ImagePadfootLover4ever says: loony92, I know! It's a new demi Lovato song. We totally have to beet it!!! Harry Potter is the #2 trending topic right now. BrazilwantsJBagain is! Comon'!!!Avatar Imagemouse68 says: ah Melissa, I am seeing the film in less than two hours in Australia, so it is people around the WORLD not just the US!! A little less US-centric please.Avatar Imagepixi_jo says: I'm sure that I'll be tweeting from the theater tomorrow, and I've been #dumbledore every time I tweet!Avatar Imagepinkmoosely says: The trends update every 1 minute I think, Harry Potter is usually 1 or 2 and Half-blood prince keeps popping up on the trends as well but so far no #Dumbledore. @Doris yes I have my Twitter (Pinkmoosely) in My Leaky Profile and my profile is public so lets keep tweeting :)Avatar Imagepolyjusposhun says: That will be 11 p.m. for me, so I will be waiting in line. I set my phone alarm to remind me to Tweet.Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: I don't have room in my tweets to include the link, so I'm just putting #dumbledore....and I'm putting it on all of my tweets! Woooooo :)Avatar ImageHattFerg says: I'm so excited!!!! I stocked up on gear (new shirt, and the candy that they have at Hot Topic!!) Im going to the theater at 10!Avatar Imagecurly03e says: So cannot wait for HBP to come out!!! YAY! Avatar Imagegreatpetie83 says: I'm just back from HPB. It really is sex, potions and rock&roll.
