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
I agree with you ppl, it’s the best Follow Friday ever :) And indeed, could she really be writing again, like her tweets suggest? If so, it’s an even better Follow Friday! :)
“…as pen and paper is my priority at the moment.” Excellent!!
I’m wondering if it would be worth it to get a twitter account just to follow Jo. Of course, Leaky will probably post most/all of her twitters, so I can just check my daily news here and be fine, right??
Yipee! I hope that means the Scottish Book is coming along….or anything new…..oh, hope, hope, hope! Don’t follow Twitter, but maybe I should now.
Hey Jessica! LOL yes I think most of us will keep up with Jo and her tweets, so fear not! :)
Imagine the day if she chooses to Twitter about the Scottish book… I predict a serious Twitter crash that day lolol, or the ultimate in Retweet days lolol :)
yay for Jo!
