In a new interview with Snitchseeker.com, Warwick Davis – who plays Flitwick, Griphook, and several other characters in the Harry Potter franchise – talked about Tom Felton as the reason he signed up for Twitter.
Snitchseeker.com: Why did you join Twitter?
Warwick Davis: Why did I join Twitter? Because of Tom Felton. It was his fault. (laughs) Not his fault.
We were sitting there on set – we spend lots of time sitting – and I said, “What are you up to there, texting and texting?” and he said, “Oh no, I’m on Twitter.” And I said, “What is this Twitter about?” and then he started to explain it. I said, “They’re interested in what you do?” and he said, “Oh yeah, I’ve got loads of followers.” He told me the app to get and he told me how to do it and I started doing it. It was really good fun. It’s quite interesting collecting followers – “Ooh, I’ve got that many now.”
I follow him and few of the other Potters. James and Oliver are on there. Matt Lewis hasn’t done any tweeting for ages.
So that’s why I did it. I just want to let people know what I’m up to because people are interested. We do these Q&A’s – it’s normally Potter fans. I’ll spend half an hour, because I’m in between whatever I’m doing, and it’s just a Q&A. It’s fun. But it is all the Potter fans.
