K. Rowling has updated her Twitter page once again today to remind followers that, although this is her official account, writing remains her top priority. Her tweet reads:style=”padding-top: 7px; padding-right: 7px; padding-bottom: 7px; padding-left: 7px; background-color: #ffffff; font: normal normal normal 13px/1.22 arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif; “>

This is the real me, but you won’t be hearing from me often I am afraid, as pen and paper is my priority at the moment.

Avatar ImageLucida says: I'd rather her keep writing than tweeting anyways! Yay for JK! First!Avatar Imageda_member0808 says: Yay she's still writing!!! I don't mind the lack of tweets :)Avatar Imagethewandofdestiny says: i'm glad that she's writing :) it's nice to have an update like this every once and a while to let us know what she's up to. :DAvatar ImageFosDoNuT says: I hope she's writing The Scottish Book, but I'll read anything she writes.Avatar ImageFGFG says: Yay! She's writing! :D I really don't think it's The Scottish Book, but if it is I'll be really happy! But I'll read anything she writes. I'm glad she is. I remember when she first got her Twitter somebody on MuggleCast or PotterCast, I can't remember which, said everybody thinks they aren't going to use their Twitter but then six months later they update it and get addicted to Twitter. :D Maybe....Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: SCOTTISH BOOK PLEASE but all in good time we can count on Jo Avatar Imagenellythemarrow says: She must be the most followed person on Twitter who doesn't actually Tweet, surely. But hey, it's great to hear she's writing something, and I really hope she takes her time :DAvatar ImagePollytomat says: She is so great! :DAvatar ImageeiVega says: I was actually somewhat disappointed in this tweet, not because I expected more but because it's a repeat of what she's already said. She basically took her last two tweets and fit them into one. At least use different words next time! Phrase it in a new way. Oh well. She has better things to worry about than being redundant on Twitter.Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: CoolAvatar ImageIamtherealme says: It's great to know that she acknowledges the fans' desire to know just which of the many Joanne Rowlings on twitter was her. I'm sure we can all understand her desire to stick to writing though. Can we honestly argue the writing preferences of the greatest author to ever live? :)Avatar Imagekatherine102678 says: Glad she posted an update, but as someone else pointed out, it is basically the same thing. Glad she is still writing though. Hopefully whatever else she publishes is as good as Harry Potter.Avatar Imagerosepug says: I love that she's bothering to tweet at all, so I don't mind if it's reiterating her past tweets! I'm just glad to know she's still focused on the pen & paper :DAvatar ImageMr. Brightside says: I want something new!!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Yay! Her real priority is books! Please keep writing!Avatar Imageroonwit says: I think this is a "please don't shut down my account" post, because it is almost 6 months since her previous post, and accounts that haven't been used for 6 months can be removed. Hence I don't think it tells us very much other than that Jo wants to keep her twitter account open.Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: R for H and i will be putting together a video for the staff at Pottercast and MyLeaky if you would like to be a part of this Gift of appreciation my page has all of my information you can choose how to contact me and i will explain the things that you can be apart of and how you can help us.. Thanks hope to here from you!!! post this in common rooms or pages if you would like to help get the word out!!!"Avatar ImageMadam Snape says: OMG! Can't wait to see what she's been writting... J.K. has the Midas touch, I bet it's gonna be something fabulous. Go J.K.!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Yeah, I'm a little disappointed that it says basically the same exact thing. But I'll take any tweet! :) I'm glad she's still writing.Avatar Imagegingersnap188 says: I wish I knew what she was writing! I can't wait for whatever she writes to be out!!Avatar ImageBookNookKara says: I miss her! Come back Jo!Avatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: She's writing!!! :DAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: As much as I would like for her to update her Twitter account, I appreciate her commitment toward working on her writing and look forward to reading whatever it is that she will release next! Keep up the good work, Jo!Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: She just likes to tease us, isn't she?! haha Well she can certainly keep writing because no matter if its HP related or not, I can't wait to read it! We love you Jo!Avatar Imagejacket says: Horay just keep writting Jo!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Well........... if pen and paper wasn't her priority then we wouldn't be have the Harry Potter books with us right now? Right? I also believe that there is always something in this world that someone must dedicate themselves to, right now J.K Rowling's is pen and paper while mine is science!Avatar Image[email protected] says: I hope she'll published what she's writing sooner. I can't wait for it. I'll bet it'd be as good as Harry Potter. :DAvatar Imagewilliam 93 says: I`m glad she is still writing.Avatar Imageleigia says: I don't tweet, nor follow any. Nevertheless, it's good that she's still writing.Avatar ImageZiadM says: better writing than tweeting!!!Avatar ImageCatherine says: OMG!! JOTWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STILL WRITTING!!! SQUEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageThio says: Even JK Rowling is copying JK Rowling nowadays... =o9Avatar ImageWant to be a Weasley says: She could be writing a grocery list and I would read it, but, I would really love for that Scottish book to be published!!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: She is so great!Avatar ImageAll Was Well says: Ah ha! A SUBTLE HINT!Avatar ImageButterfly_Boy says: Oh! I didn't know twitter accounts unused for 6 months are deleted. I only joined for the Harry Potter Alliance tweet Dumbledore campaign. I forget to use my account! Perhaps I ought to see if it's still there :-DAvatar Imagenutela17 says: Keep writing we want a new book from you!!Avatar ImageToNkS_rip says: awesome. i dont mind she doesnt visit twitter often. i would much rather read some more of her excellent work, than know what she's doing every second of the day (although i wouldnt mind that either... xD)Avatar ImageI Heart Harry Potter says: Aw, at least she's letting us know that it is her on Twitter, glad she is still writing though! Avatar ImageFifi says: This is really funny! Just one tweet from Jo and it deserves a news post! Still, I'm glad they told us because I haven't really been looking at her account these past few months.Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: I hope this is a hint!!!!Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Yah! I can't wait to read anything she writesAvatar Imagealicia00 says: grateAvatar Imageegdillon28 says: Ohhh, I hope that it is the Scottish book. That would be so great if that was released maybe right after dh part 2. While the hype is still there!! Come on Jo, plllllllllllease!!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: @lucidia agreedAvatar ImageBellatrixGranger says: Very kind of her to give this update go Jo!Avatar Imagedobby_rocks says: A writer always writes. Avatar Imagemew5645 says: In hope she is writing somthing good!!!! Avatar ImageTheRealSlytherinHeir says: As others have pointed out, I'm glad she updated us and let people know that it is the real her, but I wish she would have said something other than what she said in her previous two tweets. Avatar ImageGinnyrocks117 says: I really want her to write more!!Avatar ImageShosh Salazar Sholort says: Yay she's writing again<< and that's more important than Tweeting Avatar ImageWillowSauce says: yay shes writing! Can't wait to read whatever is next, the Scottish book or w/e !!Avatar ImageRowling Stones says: OMG what can this mean!!!Avatar ImageLoveTomRiddle says: It is just me or does it seem like Jo doesn't know how to use Twitter. I guess the tweet was kind of saying "Don't shut down my account, and I'm writing a new book"Avatar ImageNuttyAsSP says: Yes! She is writing! But what? A single novel? A series? The HP encyclopedia?Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: You don't have to tweet, Jo. :o)
