In response, a bookshop based in north London decided to tweet Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone at Morgan, word by word.

.@piersmorgan Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.

Tweeting 140 characters at a time.

The bookshop clarified that a real person and not a bot was behind the tweets.

Hi. Just so you know, i'm not a computer program. It's me typing stuff. Piers Morgan is a twat. JK Rowling is incredible. I shall continue.

They've since taken a break after reaching 100 tweets.

.@piersmorgan He cleared his throat nervously. "Er -- Petunia, dear -- you haven't heard from your sister lately, have you? 100/32567

BuzzFeed News reached out to the person behind the account, but they said they'd decided to enjoy their Sunday afternoon at a museum.

I am at @sciencemuseum with my family today. More HP later. Have the best day and thanks for all the lovely messages.

But promised to return later, with 32,000 tweets remaining.

.@piersmorgan OK Piers, that'll do for the time being. We'll read some more later shall we?
