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
Ah HA! Look, my friends: Leaky broke the news first! AP, via MSNBC, credits THIS WEBSITE for being the first to report Jo’s Twitter account! You GO, Leaky!
i’m with dark lord hector, i’m just excited that pen and paper are her priority right now! especially seeing as though i live in the US and she doesn’t, so it’s not like i could stalk her even if i wanted to.
i hope leaky will keep us updated if we miss anything important that she’s twittered, like “writing an even better series at the local starbucks”….
I am so happy she is writing, hopefully it is the Scottish Book, going to have to open a Twitter account.
This is really great!!! I’m following her although she won’t be often there! Actually, I’m not often there, either! ;)
….. pen and paper is my priority at the moment…
Great , she is writing something, I wish the news told us several weeks ago that Jo was working on Harry Potter encyclopedia!!!!!!!!
Anyway I’ll keep looking at her Twitter and if she would be writing I’ll regestrait!!!
