J.K. Rowling Opens Twitter Account

It's #followfriday on Leaky! Or as many readers have called it: the best #followfriday ever!
Reader Cassandra wrote in to tell us that J.K. Rowling apparently has a Twitter account here, at username @jk_rowling. While Twitter calls it a verified account, we checked, just to be sure, and have received confirmation: it is Jo. She opened it to put an end to all the fake ones and won't be twittering often.
The account seems to have been opened on Sept. 17 and reads:
I am told that people have been twittering on my behalf, so I thought a brief visit was in order just to prevent any more confusion! However, I should flag up now that although I could twitter endlessly, I'm afraid you won't be hearing from me very often, as pen and paper is my priority at the moment
Remember you can follow Leaky at @leaky
“…as pen and paper is my priority at the moment.” Excellent!!
I hope that means the Scottish Book is coming along….or something new…..I would get a twitter account just to follow Jo. However, Leaky will probably post most/all of her twitters, so I’ll just check my daily news here.
Ha. This is amazing… I got a twitter just to follow her. :)
But what is this about pen and paper now, Jo?
sooo excited about this! she is so wonderful! she doesn’t need to twitter so much, we are all ok with that, as long as she is doing what we love her for!
I see she has over 50,000 followers now, though the number doesn’t seem to be increasing as fast as it was.
