3. Rowling took to Twitter to show the world what Galbraith’s *beautiful* signature looks like.

4. And fans took the opportunity to ask Rowling a few questions.

5. The author, who’s usually quiet on Twitter, decided to answer some of them.

6. She even had some fun, while she was at it.

7. If only we thought to beg her for a response using *sad Dobby eyes.*

8. Someone even questioned why she wasn’t watching the World Cup in Brazil.

@leticiappinho I'm watching the World Cup right now. Spain-Chile. I'll definitely come to Brazil one of these days.

@jk_rowling how's your portuguese, by the way?

11. It’s OK, TBH.

@slytheriz Mais ou menos, to be honest.

12. One fan admitted to getting nervous when J.K. Rowling tweets at random people.

when @jk_rowling tweets people, I get anxious. Good anxious, but nerves nonetheless.

13. Imagine how she felt when Rowling TWEETED HER BACK!

@Margiggles Why? What do you think is going to happen? Now you've made me nervous. I'd better stop.

14. Keep being awesome, Rowling (a.k.a. Galbraith).

15. We’ll hopefully see ya both around the Twitterverse.

It's been a looooong writing day and it's time to give my fingers a rest. No writer ever had more wonderful fans. Thank you X
