'Harry Potter' author JK Rowling joins Twitter

NEW YORK (AP) - September 25, 2009

Wanting to counter numerous fake Rowlings on Twitter, the "Harry Potter" author has set up her own account. But she warned that she didn't plan many tweets.

"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," she wrote in a Tweet dated Sept. 17.

The account, http://twitter.com/jk(underscore)rowling, was first reported Friday by the fan site www.the-leaky-cauldron.org, then confirmed by Potter publisher Scholastic Inc.
