J.K. Rowling Is Celebrating Harry Potter's 20th Anniversary With The Internet


Pssst. Want to feel old? Yeah? Wait, no? Well too bad.

It’s been 20 years since the first Harry Potter book was released. That’s right.

Author J.K. Rowling tweeted about the milestone and even included the special hashtag Twitter made in honor of the day that kicked off a social phenomenon.

Twitter isn’t the only social media service that’s giving props to Potter — Facebook has a cool little Easter egg as well. If you mention the words “Harry Potter” or any of the Hogwarts house names in a Facebook post, they’ll appear in their houses’ respective colors. And if you try clicking on any of the words, a wand will appear and shoot magic all over the place.

Although it doesn’t look like it’s working for everyone. Guess that answers whether or not I’ll ever get my letter to Hogwarts.

Of course, there were plenty of other people all over the web who were feeling the Harry Potter love.

Some people even celebrated with cake.

Others shared photos of their first edition books.
