Pottermore and The Magic Quill Blow Up Twitter (and Change Potterhead Sleep Patterns)

1 Aug

If you start to notice more people sleeping during the middle of the day, pulling over to take naps at rest stops, drowsily blabbering in Parseltongue… you very likely have stumbled across a (fellow) Potterhead who was up all night trying to be among the proud 1,000,000 who will participate as a Beta tester for J.K. Rowling’s new Pottermore project. What? You think 1,000,000 sounds like a lot?

In terms of Potter fans, that’s just a tip of the Sorting Hat. These fans are from around the world, so those who aren’t on UK time have had to revamp their sleeping habits in order to take on the Magic Quill challenge and discover their new magical name. We seriously advise bosses to give workers the week off (with pay), because this will be going on through August 6th (and who knows what’s to happen after that!).
