Actress Emma Watson has made her first official tweet on the popular Twitter platform:
Hi everyone, this is the real me! I won't be able to tweet often but I just wanted to say hello. Have a great summer, love Emma x
The account, @EmWatson, is not [see UPDATE III below] "verified" by Twitter itself yet, but the creator of Watson's official web site, Rob Noble, confirmed it is Emma by retweeting her message and responding to a direct question about it.
Don't forget you can also follow @hpana on Twitter for instant updates from the Harry Potter universe!
UPDATE: Our Harry Potter People list on Twitter contains only confirmed participants in the Potter-verse, including actors, executives, crew, representatives from Universal, Warner Bros. and other companies and individuals associated with the franchise.
UPDATE II: The reason HPANA gave credence to Rob Noble's confirmation so immediately is that he worked on JK Rowling's official site, and was even the person who notified us that we had won her Fan Site Award in 2004. Noble recently started a new web design agency, Great Fridays, which developed Emma Watson's official site. That was enough for us to believe his tweets and the reason HPANA broke the story [in English] before anyone else. (Well... OK, other sites might have been busy having fun at Infinitus.)
UPDATE III: The account is now "Verified" by Twitter (as of Monday, July 19, 2010) and a post on Emma's official site also links to it.
