35 Reasons J.K. Rowling Should Never, Ever Leave Twitter

J.K. Rowling is the powerhouse behind the “Harry Potter” universe, and we love her for it. From the books to the films to the theme parks, you’d think a woman who has already given us so much couldn’t possibly give us any more.

But, au contraire, friends. Rowling’s Twitter presence has long been lauded, primarily for her ability to take down trolls and provide consistently humorous musings on the world.

Ahead of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, which first hit bookshelves back in 1997, we’ve decided to celebrate Mother Potter in the best way possible: Rounding up her most iconic tweets for our reading/retweeting pleasure. There are 35 of them. You’re welcome.

Her #relatable feelings of frustration that led to needing cake:

This classic response to a troll that does double duty as a song lyric:

These epic responses to/subtweets about trolls:

Her complete and utter vitriol toward President Donald Trump:

That time she wrote out “Expecto Patronum” for a fan’s tattoo:

When she’s frequently expressed her love for otters:

 

When she received a truly incredible mug for her birthday:

That time she served up some serious sass about women and sex (… and women everywhere started clapping):

When she admitted that killing all those people in the “Harry Potter” world was hard on her, too. Even Snape:

When she revealed the one thing that rivals Voldemort in terms of evilness — printers:

Those times she filled us in on the ups and downs of her writing life:

That time she said she doesn’t care if you think she’s a bitch:

When she referred to herself in the third person to declare that she loved the casting of a black Hermione in the “Cursed Child” play:

That time she said the phrase “penis hat”:

When she proved she’s ~ just like us ~:

J.K. Rowling ― never stop tweeting. Ever.

From June 1 to 30, HuffPost is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the very first “Harry Potter” book by reminiscing about all things Hogwarts. Accio childhood memories.

The Agent Who Discovered J.K. Rowling Explains Why Her Stories Are Magical

More so than a collection of stories, the “Harry Potter” series can be characterized by its most devoted fans as a hobby, or a lifestyle. The increasingly voluminous installments were hefty enough to get lost in, and they managed to create not only a convincing world, but lovable characters, too.

It’s hard to imagine a world in which the books (and films, and video games, and personality quizzes) might not have been published. But, according to J.K. Rowling’s first agent Christopher Little, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was not an easy sell. 

Little told HuffPost over email that Rowling selected him as her agent in part due to his name, which she liked. He was, in turn, enamored of her story, believing after reading it that it was ready to be sent out to publishers, requiring few big changes. (The rules of Quidditch, however, were altered.)

Below, Little describes the experience of trying to sell a book he believed in ― in spite of publishers’ protestations that it was too long or too “exclusive.”

When Rowling first found an agent, he compared her world-building talent to Tolkien’s.

“When I received the submission from Joanne (as she was known at the time) Rowling, it just came in as an unsolicited submission (of the first three chapters) and was picked up by our then office manager who was looking through the slush pile,” he said. “She liked it and bought it to my attention. Once I read it, I had no reservations whatsoever and in fact felt very excited about it. 

“It was clearly presented as a fully realized world […] I don’t think I recall reading anything so immersive since The Lord of the Rings many years earlier. We quickly wrote back to Jo asking to see the rest of the manuscript as soon as I had finished those initial chapters.”

Rowling chose to write under the name “J.K.” in order to appeal to young boy readers.

“The suggestion to use initials instead of J.K. Rowling’s given name, Joanne, came from discussion with Bloomsbury. It’s notoriously harder to get boys to read in comparison with girls, as many parents will know, and an author being obviously female was more likely to be off-putting to boys. Joanne selected the ‘K’ after her paternal grandmother.”

Rowling only made a few changes before sending it out to publishers.

“There were very minor differences in the full manuscript that was received and that which was sent to the publishers — I do recall that the Quidditch rules were tweaked a bit!”

The book was rejected over and over again before it found a home.

 “Over a period of nigh on a year, the book was turned down by more or less every major publishing house in the U.K. Various reasons were given including the story being too long, the fact that a story set in a children’s boarding school might feel too ‘exclusive’ to many readers, etc.

“When I first spoke to Barry Cunningham, who had at that time recently been hired to run the new children’s department at Bloomsbury Publishing, the book was accepted and an offer was made. He saw the same potential as I did ― perhaps as we both came from a background other than publishing originally, so arguably thought slightly less conventionally and considered this well-characterized, unique story as one that clearly should be published despite such considerations.”

From June 1 to 30, HuffPost is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the very first “Harry Potter” book by reminiscing about all things Hogwarts. Accio childhood memories.

J. K. Rowling Magically Trolls Donald Trump For Tweeting In The Third Person

J. K. Rowling just couldn’t resist.

The Harry Potter author gleefully mocked President Donald Trump after he tweeted the following message in the third person on Tuesday:

Here’s how Rowling responded:

Trump often refers to himself by his surname, rather than by using the words “me” and “I.”

It’s a habit that Harvard Medical School professor Elsa Ronningstam says people with “an exaggerated view of how great” they are sometimes use to make themselves appear even bigger.

Trump’s tweet and Rowling’s retort did not go unnoticed by other Twitter users, who seized on the posts to also poke fun at the president.

J. K. Rowling Trolls Donald Trump’s Family With Hogwarts House Revelation

J. K. Rowling has suggested that there’s no need for the Hogwarts sorting hat when it comes to President Donald Trump’s family.

The Harry Potter author fired back in typically fierce style on Monday after journalist Oliver Willis sarcastically tweeted that Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, would all be Slytherin alumni.

“You’ve got to get the letter before you put on the hat, Oliver,” Rowling wrote. 

The tweet seemed to imply that the trio would not follow in the footsteps of dark wizard Lord Voldemort by becoming Slytherins ― because they wouldn’t even be invited to the school of witchcraft and wizardry in the first place.

Perhaps Rowling’s previous claim that Donald Trump is actually worse than “He Who Shall Not Be Named” has something to do with it. Twitter users thought her subtle trolling of the Trumps was pure magic.

J.K. Rowling Expertly Shuts Down The International Women’s Day Trolls

J.K. Rowling launched a pre-emptive strike against Twitter trolls on Wednesday.

As the world geared up to mark International Women’s Daythe Harry Potter author anticipated the trash-tweeters who’d try to belittle the event by asking why there wasn’t a corresponding celebration for men:

Predictably, Rowling’s post received a mixed reaction and enticed some of the trolls to come out of hiding. Here are some of her followers’ favorable replies:

Rowling also recommended some reading for her followers in honor of the day, which applauds achievements of women whilst campaigning for a gender equal world:

Gulping Gargoyles, J.K. Rowling Looked Incredible At The BAFTAs

J.K. Rowling took a break from owning trolls on Twitter to owning the BAFTAs red carpet on Sunday. 

The author looked straight-up magical in a long-sleeved, fitted maroon gown with a thigh-high slit. 

She paired the gown with purple pumps, a sparkly clutch and some serious statement earrings. 

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” took home an award for best production design, but we’d say Rowling herself won the award for best selfie of the night, posing with “Beasts” star Eddie Redmayne and Emma Stone.

Swoon. So much to obsess over, so little time. Check out the rest of the looks from the show:

JK Rowling hits back over threats to burn Harry Potter books

SPECIAL DISCOUNT UPDATE:


J.K. Rowling Hints That Dumbledore May Be Openly Gay In The ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel

Since “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” acts as a prequel to the “Harry Potter” universe, we’re about to get a lot more backstory about our cherished wizarding world. The film mostly operates as its own entity, but at a press conference in New York on Thursday, J.K. Rowling and producer David Heyman promised more “connective tissue” with the initial Hogwarts novels as the new five-part franchise continues. 

That raises many questions about what’s in store for our new hero, sheepish magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), and the established characters who may resurface. With the exception of the dark wizard Grindelwald, most of “Fantastic Beasts” introduces fresh faces. But we already know that Albus Dumbledore will appear in the second film, and at the press conference, Screen Crush senior editor and former HuffPost writer Erin Whitney asked whether that movie will present the future headmaster as openly gay. 

In a room filled with domestic and international press, Rowling smiled knowingly at the question. “Well, I can’t tell you everything I would like to say because this is obviously a five-part story, so there’s lots to unpack in that relationship,” Rowling said, referring to Dumbledore’s known romance with Grindelwald. “I will say that you will see Dumbledore as a younger man, and quite a troubled man, because he wasn’t always the sage. He was always very clever, but we’ll see what I think was the formative period of his life. As far as his sexuality is concerned, watch this space.”

Of course, this is no confirmation either way. But it sounds to me like the author, who wrote “Fantastic Beasts” and is putting finishing touches on the sequel’s script, is inching toward an affirmative answer. Given her advocacy for the LGBTQ community and her anti-Trump sentiments, one can assume Rowling understands how revolutionary it would be for young viewers to see a queer hero on the big screen. 

Rowling, a Brit, has been vocal about the American presidential election on Twitter, but she didn’t want to talk Trump when asked about him at the press conference. Rowling said any Trumpian parallels to storylines in “Fantastic Beasts” are coincidental, as the story was conceived years ago.

However, she noted that the film, which opens Nov. 18, revolves around unlikely heroes thrust into a situation while dark forces try to take control. The overarching themes, Rowling said, were a response to “a rise of populism around the world.” She was in a “bleak mood” boarding a plane to America on Wednesday, so she worked on revisions to the next “Beasts” script to distract herself. 

“I need to do it,” she said. “I feel strange if I don’t write. Clearly, I don’t need to write anymore. I love it so much. I would feel almost like a psychic amputation if I didn’t do it. I have to write.”

J.K. Rowling Shoots Down Your Favorite ‘Harry Potter’ Fan Theories

Sorry, Muggles. J.K. Rowling is going all Avada Kedavra on some of your favorite “Harry Potter” fan theories.

Up to this point, fans of the books and movies have analyzed the story so much that they’ve come up with a number of theories that are so crazy they have to be true.

As it turns out, nope, they’re just crazy. Here are the theories that must not be named anymore:

Ron Weasley is not a time-traveling Albus Dumbledore.

No! Not this one!

In the books, there are a number of physical descriptions and plot points that show major similarities between Dumbledore and Ron, but after a fan asked about it, Rowling confirmed they aren’t the same person:

Bloody hell …

Also, Draco Malfoy is not a werewolf and Snape is not a vampire. 

 

What? OK, she’s just pouring it on now.

Because of their physical descriptions and some peculiar activities in the books, Draco Malfoy and Snape were thought to secretly be a werewolf and a vampire, respectively. Draco’s physical changes that occur in the book are seen as the result of a werewolf curse by some, and Snape’s pale complexion was viewed as evidence he was in fact undead. Unfortunately, these are not the case either:

After that, Rowling was done crushing all our Muggle dreams for one day.

Don’t be too disappointed, though. Rowling has also confirmed some other fan theories, and with her new play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” coming to the stage, you can be sure more theories are on the way.

Dear Oprah and J.K. Rowling

An Open Letter To Oprah and J.K. Rowling
cc: Gayle King

My Dear Ladies,

You have a problem, and I can solve it for you. You must constantly get cornered at cocktail parties, by people wanting a leg-up in show business. Because you are both successful, they imagine you can give them (or a loved one) an entire career in show business. They think you could supply that one break their son or niece needs, which will lead to instant fame, and eventually have a perfume or sandwich named for them.

They feel (as do lots of people) that a person can bypass the usual artistic process of hard work-experiment-fail-regroup-retry, the whole paying your dues thing, if they can just get the attention of someone already famous, who will magically wave a wand and make them famous too. We know that this is not the way it works. The life of an artist is full of sacrifice and hard work, you miss important family events, you fail to live up to the expectations of others, who might define themselves by what they’re wearing, as opposed to what they’re thinking. You struggle, you sometimes succeed, and each failure informs your work. That’s the reality.

You both have this problem (people wanting a fame hand out) and you both need a way to deflect well-meaning but misguided people (and possibly relatives of yours?), looking for a quick route to fame and fortune. You’d like some way to help them, but only if they were prepared to work hard too. My solution?

Take a tiny fraction of your wealth and buy a building in Edinburgh (site of the largest arts festival in the world in August). I will help you manage that venue (we’ll negotiate the details once we establish that this would be a good fit for us all). This will enable you to hand these people my business card (which I will supply) letting them know that with a little hard work, they could produce their own show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

They will still have to create something, and work hard to market that something here at the Fringe, but it would be a brilliant way to separate the artists from the dilettante’s.
People that want you to do all the work for them and they’ll just show up to reap the rewards, will soon drop out. It would kind of be like a scholarship, but a conditional one.

We could design the coolest of online courses, taking them through the process of creating something new. It would be so much fun to work with you both on curriculum. Once these people have completed their course work, they would have an artistic license to produce a show at your venue. . . gratis.

They would get the venue without charge, (for a set amount of time) but they would still need to supply their own lodgings and food. So it wouldn’t be a hand out at all, but a step up on their ladder of success.

Here’s my plan. Come to my show, Macaroni on a Hotdog, next week, I’m at Venue 53 theSpace at Surgeon’s Hall, at 11:35 A.M. See my show, so you can see where my artistic sensibilities lie, and we’ll have lunch afterwards, (my treat). We’ll have the curry from across the street, and to avoid stares we’ll eat in the limo. You guys can decide who wants to drive. Does your limousine have little TV trays so we can eat comfortably? Tell you what. . . I can also supply the TV trays. I’ll google where to get them, and at the very least, whoever drives gets some free limo TV trays. So this is a win-win-win situation.

I have several buildings in mind that would be perfect, but am certainly open to your suggestions, and I love real estate shopping. Once we find a place, let’s talk to Nate Berkus about decorating, he seems like a fun guy to work with.

I’ll cc Gayle King in on this because she’s fun too.

This idea has been percolating for quite some time, and you have no idea how fun it could be. If you’re not interested please put me in the path of your other billionaire friends who like the arts. Yours Truly, Sandy Thomas

J.K. Rowling Reveals What Her Horcrux Would Be (If She Had To Make One)

Dear, sweet J.K. Rowling would never want to make a horcrux, of course.

The deed — if you remember from the Harry Potter book series — is accomplished through murder, which splits a wizard’s soul apart, allowing him to conceal a portion of it in an object of his choosing. Lord Voldemort, being a horrible git, created seven of them to achieve immortality. 

So, yes, Rowling would never want to make a horcrux. But if she did, we learned via Twitter on Friday, it’d probably be a tea bag.


Aww, Joanne. The author revealed her choice on the social media platform in a discussion with fans on tea-brewing. For the uncultured heathens non-Brits out there: Heat the kettle, not the mug. Add one tea bag per person, and one for the pot. Milk goes in last.

And never underestimate Rowling’s Twitter presence – she’s notoriously good at responding to fans. Especially if you’ve got a good pun.

J.K. Rowling Publishes New Writing About The Inferi On Pottermore

As part of 12 days of new content on Pottermore leading up to Christmas, the site posted a new riddle on Dec. 21. The correct answer unlocks writing from J.K. Rowling about the Inferi, reanimated corpses that protect one of the Horcruxes in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Here’s the quiz:

infericlue

Those who solve the puzzle will unlock a new Moment from the book, in which Harry and Dumbledore face down an onslaught of living dead. The Moment includes new writing from Rowling about these ominous walking bodies, which are referred to as Inferi.

Rowling notes that she doesn’t classify the creatures as zombies, though many readers might think of reanimated dead bodies as “zombies.” In explanation, Rowling notes, among other reasons, that zombies belong to the folkloric tradition of Haiti and some regions in Africa, not Great Britain. “While the students of Hogwarts would learn about [zombies], they would not expect to meet them walking down the streets of Hogsmeade,” she clarifies.

This attention to the different mythologies of different regions underpins the series. In another piece of writing recently published on Pottermore, Rowling pointed out that only one vampire makes an appearance in the books, and a brief one at that, in part because vampires belong to an Eastern European folklore tradition rather than a British one. The creatures with a stronger presence in the books, such as hags and werewolves, are generally drawn more directly from British mythology.

For more on why Rowling chose to distinguish the Inferi from zombies, solve the riddle to read the full story on Pottermore. And check out Monday’s new writing on Draco Malfoy.

J.K. Rowling Publishes New Writing About Vampires On Pottermore

Pottermore’s 12 days of Christmas roll on: Today, a new piece of writing from J.K. Rowling on vampires was published on the site. To unlock the new story, fans must solve the daily riddle.

Here’s today’s quiz:

pottermoreclue

Those who answer correctly earn entrance into a a new Moment — the Christmas party thrown by Professor Slughorn for his favored students, the Slug Club. Amid a festive hubbub and sprigs of mistletoe, one vampire lurks.

In her new writing, Rowling notes that Sanguini, the vampire Harry Potter meets at Slughorn’s party, is the only actual vampire he encounters in the series. Unfortunately for Severus Snape conspiracy theorists, this means Snape himself was merely a wizard, not a vampire, though fans have circulated the hypothesis that his pale complexion and bat-like appearance indicate a vampiric origin. On the other hand, “we meet him outside the castle by daylight, and no corpses with puncture marks in their necks ever turn up at Hogwarts,” Rowling points out wryly. So much for that.

Rowling’s new piece also reveals why vampires played such a negligible role in the series. Though she initially planned for one Hogwarts professor to be a vampire, the character was quickly written out and no vampires were included as major characters in the books.
