    J.K. Rowling Just Tweeted At A Bunch Of Her Fans And It Was Awesome

    *Sad Dobby eyes*

    Tomorrow marks the day that Robert Galbraith's second novel, The Silkworm, hits stands.

    And by Robert Galbraith, we obviously mean J.K. Rowling's pseudonym for her mystery novel series.

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

    It took Robert a whole weekend to perfect that signature. (I let him practise at my kitchen table.)

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

    @jk_rowling how long did it take to practise yours,

    JKR TWEETED ME@augustusokay

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

    @augustusokay That's just how it comes out of the pen. Oddly, Robert felt his first attempts resembled my signature, so he had to practise.

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

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

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

    @jk_rowling WHY AREN'T YOU IN BRAZIL WATCHING THE WORLD CUP

    Which of course, Rowling answered perfectly.

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

    How well does she speak Portuguese, you might ask?

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

    It's OK, TBH.

    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.

    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.

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

    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
