Tweeting Tom Felton

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!

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.

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!

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.

Guess That Book

"Good, aren't they?" said Malfoy smoothly. "But perhaps the Gryffindor team will be able to raise some gold and get new brooms, too. You could raffle off those Cleansweep Fives; I expect a museum would bid for them."
