J.K. Rowling's Twitter Following Passes 1M Mark
February 24, 2012, 08:17 PM
She has only tweeted nine times, and mostly to say she is spending her time with paper and pen as a better companion than digital communication. With yesterday's announcement that she will be publishing something not-Harry-Potter-related for the first time, J.K. Rowling sent out another tweet to confirm the story and indicate that it would be out later in the year. Though it started today hovering near 993,000 followers, J.K. Rowling is now well over the 1M mark.
As press continues to build around her newest venture, we can only imagine that number will be multiplied many times over.
Wow—Congrats Jo!!!!! I feel proud to state i was one of her first 1,000 followers when i found out she had an official twitter…i joined twitter because she had an official twitter! (go geekness!!!)
Seems she should tweet more since she went through the trouble of getting a twitter. I like to follow very active people on twitter.
I wonder what genre this new book is?
Glad she’s getting more followers! :)
LunaLuver- ‘went through the trouble of getting a twitter’? It’s not exactly a life-threatening operation lol, and she probably didn’t even do it herself. She got Twitter because of people imersonating her on there, as she said in her first tweet.
“She has only tweeted nine times” – Mel, you crack me up :D
That’s so cool. I think Jo’s the only one with so little tweets and so many followers. Well, only she CAN.
Hi Melissa, I just finished reading your book “Harry, a History” and I just loved to know everything that was going on during the Harry Potter phenomenom. It’s just a pitty I missed so much. But anyway Harry was part of my childhood, I grew up with him and now I’m super excited about J K’s new novel!
@JoRowlingRocks: Well yeah but still, if you are going to have one, use it. Course I’m guessing now with this book she’ll be using her twitter more to push it and get hype. Instead of writting a new book she should be releasing The Scottish Book she’s been promising, then she can do something else.
This is great! I really like her twitts.
I am excited about a new book, but I am afraid I can be disaponted or somthing since I’m not a " adult ", since she is saying it is going to be a adult novel ..
Never such little tweets and so many followers! I’m proud to say I’m one of them! :D Jo, you’re an amazing person. Everything that you’re getting is well deserved!
Well what if this is the Scottish Book (though it’s highly unlikely) but it the Scottish Book could just be something that she wants to do in her own time because she wants to do it not because she has to do it.
Pssh and why wouldn’t you follow her anyway?
To be honest, she deserves 10 million followers, not just 1 million! I’m not sure there are that many people on twitter though, so…
Haha, anyways, that’s great for her, I’m proud! Not many people could pull something like that :D <3
Cool! I am one of them!
Plus I can’t wait for your next book!
