#HarryPotterBookNight – A new Harry Potter celebration

We solemnly swear that we are up to a lot of good.

Harry Potter is a Twitter phenomenon

Lots of people like to think that books have no place on Social Media. They deny to think that printed paper can coexist within the Social Media world. However, we do not think that way. We believe that a place like Twitter can help to spread the word about a book series. A good example of this is the Harry Potter books. This community created a book club under the hashtag #wwbookclub and it is widely followed. Back in October we wrote a post about this, you can check it here. And Today we are here to talk about the #HarryPotterBookNight. Thousands of fans gathered around the world during one night to read the Harry Potter books. Let’s see how Twitter behaved during this magical night.
