Harry Potter: A Top Twitter Trend of 2009


Dec 15, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Harry Potter has been on many minds of late, and is apparently the subject of many a tweet. Twitter, the communication system that lets you reach people around the world in 140 characters or less, has released their Top Trends for 2009. As noted in the Washington Post with the full list here, “Harry Potter” was the Top Movie trend edging out communications about films “New Moon,” “District 9,” “Paranormal Activity,” and “Star Trek.”

Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: Whoo! Go Harry! I love it that we beat out the Twilight Saga!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am not surprised to hear that this has been the case. Such is the devotion for so many people around the world to this franchise and to this fandom that no other cultural product or artifact could even begin to conceive of even attempting to compete with the hearts that Harry has captured.Avatar Imageleeuhh says: above New Moon! WOOT!Avatar Imagepotterforpresident says: It's always nice to see New Moon somewhere below Harry Potter, everything's in its rightful place. :DAvatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: I'm happy to beat new moon, I admit that, though I do find it a little surprising. (I am a casual twilight fan btw). Harry Potter as a movie franchise has never failed to take a good 900mil at the box office and though twilight's numbers are teeny tiny compared to that, that franchise and everyone in it is suddenly everywhere (unlike most of our young actors who don't do many outside projects or make a terrible amount of appearances - of course when you're shooting 9 months out of the year every year for a decade that can be quite difficult). but I seriously would have thought new moon would have had HP beat in this regard given they've even got Taylor Lautner hosting snl. (horrendous ep - they shouldve got Dan! perhaps next year for the DH release?)Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Yay for Harry! @rettophantom agreed,but it still feels good seeing HP on the top spot :)Avatar Imagephetshiez says: great!!!love harry so much but twilight & new moon is also nice but they cant beat harry ever:)Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: coolAvatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Awesome! Harry Potter beat New Moon! Sweet! Go HP fans!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Yay! I'm sure next year will be the same! Deathly Hallows will be BIG :)Avatar Imagepfowlerp says: Awesome!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Interesting statistic...Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: It's nice to know the HP fandom is still going strong! :DAvatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Ooooh :) Impressive! Although I have Twitter and see the point of it... I just don't use it! I'm just checking the full list... Cool :)Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Go HP! You can beat them all!!!!Avatar ImageCatAlly says: Yes! Harry on Twitter for ever!Avatar Imageharrypotter1991 says: That is very awesome that Harry Potter beat New Moon on that list!Avatar Imagelivlovegood says: Take that, Twilight! Come on, Potter, keep showing those twitards what you've got!Avatar Imagenealiezealbie says: yay harry! ...in its rightful place at number one! :)Avatar ImageNicci Weasley says: nice!Avatar Imagerettophantom says: Harry Potter really didn't need this. Although this is just evidence of Harry's widespread positive influence, Harry can stand on his own without all of these top 10 lists to justify him. There really isn't a competition anywhere. This isn't a contest. Harry Potter and everything that surrounds him isn't just something that we faun over and fetishize because we think he is pretty. Harry Potter is every bit a part of us like our heart and our blood. He has grown with us and lived with us, and will always be part of our lives. Harry Potter is not the latest craze, or a fleeting fad. Harry Potter is forever.Avatar Imagestella8h8chang says: Agreed! So glad that we beat Twilight :DAvatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Yaay! @ rettophantom: I agree with you but it doesn't hurt getting first even in silly lists like this one. Lol Chuck Norris is on the list :DAvatar Imagenox avis says: awesome! beat twilight!Avatar ImageElderwand103 says: Yes! ;]Avatar ImageMacedonian says: Im So glad hp beat new moon!Yay Hp rocks!Avatar Imagespiritbound says: woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo we beat new moon! (totally love new moon by the way, but harry all the way !!!)Avatar Imagewrightrox says: oh yeah twitter helps me keep up with HP, TLC, sue melissa and john :DAvatar ImageSwansurf2099 says: @ abandonedboyjon I agree with everything you say, I'm a casual Twilight fan as well. And although I am so VERY happy Harry Potter did beat New Moon, I'm surprised, because New Moon has been trending almost every day since the trailer came out months ago - I didn't see HP in the trends as often as I would have liked O.OAvatar Imageele0206 says: yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yeeeeeeees er, that's all i can say about hp beating twilight...LOLAvatar Imageowanalilypotter says: HARRY POTTER WINS!!!!! YET AGAIN! And although, he really doesn't need all this, he deserves it. We don't need lists to tell us he's awesome; we know this already!^_^Avatar ImageFifi says: Harry Potter beat New Moon! Beat that, Twilight! :DAvatar Imagestevenk12468 says: That makes my day...:)))Avatar Imageginevrapotter07 says: Take that New Moon! :D This proves Harry Potter is the best!

YAY!! i love twitterAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Go harry Potter!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageShinyPineapple says: Whooo!! Go Potter!!! im not surprised :D Avatar ImageO Sparkly One says: Awesome!! :)Avatar ImageIndigoMisfit says: That is really exciting! But I wish people would stop saying Harry Potter beat out New Moon. Mostly because no movie or book series past present or future will ever be as popular as Harry Potter. End of story. Nothing will EVER beat HP. There is no competition. So will Harry Potter fans PLEASE stop trying to make it a competition. Just let the crazy twilight fangirls (and the non-crazy ones too) have their fun. I'm getting of my soap box now.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: So glad that it beat New Moon... I know that I tweet about HP almost every day. hahaAvatar Imagejasmineflower27 says: WOOOOOT!!!!! HP beat New Moon (not surprising) :) AWESOME!!!! go HP fans!!!!! hope next year with DH out will be even better than this year ;)Avatar Imagetaraa says: hehe that is great harry potter will always beat twilight for A LOT of reasons Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Sorry all Twilight fans, but Harry Potter is MUCH better than Twilight saga!!!
