The real J.K. Rowling has come to Twitter.

Wanting to counter numerous fake Rowlings on Twitter, the "Harry Potter" author has set up her own account. But she warned that she didn't plan many tweets.

"I should flag up now that although I could twitter endlessly, I'm afraid you won't be hearing from me very often as pen and paper is my priority at the moment," she wrote in a Tweet dated Sept. 17.
