While you’re busy tweeting about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 this weekend, you might want to take a moment and try to summarize the entire Harry Potter series in a tweet and add the hashtag #Potterinatweet. Do so before July 22, and you’ll be entered to win one of two trips to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in a contest sponsored by Wikia’s Harry Potter Wiki, the most-visited Harry Potter fan site on the Internet. (You’re welcome.) If 140 characters won’t cut it (or 125, really, plus that hashtag, see some samples), you can also enter by logging into the Wiki and leaving a comment answering the question “What does Harry Potter mean to you?” Winners will be randomly selected, but you owe it to Harry to put some thought into it. So far, there have been more than 1,500 entries.
What’s your 140-character or less summary? Mine? “In wonder and war, laughter and tears, have the strength to stand alone but know you won’t have to. Surprise! Neville’s hot! #Potterinatweet”
(Special thanks to Best Week Ever’s Michelle Collins for drawing my attention to the transformation of actor Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom. If you have not seen her photo dissertation, you must.)
