Seriously? Bieber beat Harry? Nuh uh. I think Fresca ROAR is right, and that tweens swarmed the voting…… silly tweens. (No offense meant to any tweens here! just meaning the silly Bieber fangirl tweens ;) )

Okay what does this even mean? Sorry but Twitter really has nothing to do with anything. Seriously thanks for sharing Leaky, because that’s your job and you do it fantastically, but everyone chill. It’s just twitter, it doesn’t actually mean anything. I doubt that most twitter users have even read a book.

Good to hear that Harry Potter is a trend. Justin Beiber is more talked about than HP? Honestly, The world has gone to the dogs.

So your all shocked that Bieber was a trend, yet in 80% of the comments here you’ve mentioned him?! That’s how Twitter works. You’re all talking about him. He’s on the list because kids love him and everyone else hates him. Hence they feel the need to comment. Bieber’s popularity is equalled by how he’s despised and used as an internet joke. He’s usually mentioned on Twitter

Go HP! @KiwiMcl, good point. But Justin Bieber still annoys me (and by the looks of it, most people on Leaky) to no end.

thats great! inception was a good movie as well so im glad that those were the top two!

I think you’re probably right KiwiMcl. Particularly when you consider that the average age of Twitter users is 30 years old.

Unless this is like the Twilight thing and tonnes of soccer moms have Bieber Fever (double shudder because I knew a bad-weird Bieber when I was in school).

You know it’s a bad day when you see that Justin Bieber is higher than Harry Potter on ANYTHING – not just Twitter Trends

Guess That Book

Harry enjoyed the breakneck journey down to the Weasleys' vault, but felt dreadful, far worse than he had in Knockturn Alley, when it was opened. There was a very small pile of silver Sickles inside, and just one gold Galleon.
