  • JK Rowling deals killer blow in Twitter spat with Piers Morgan

JK Rowling and Piers Morgan have seemingly reached the end of their Twitter war over politics and how "rubbish" Harry Potter is. One of the more odd side effects to come out of the spat was the twitter account belonging to a bookshop in North London began tweeting every sentence from Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone at Morgan. I'd love to thank him!

The stars kicked off an expletive-ridden row on Twitter on Saturday after JK expressed her glee at the broadcaster being sworn at by Australian comedian Jim Jefferies during an appearance on panel show Real Time With Bill Maher. "[It] was exactly as satisfying as I'd imagined", she wrote.

The piece was entitled "The 100 British celebrities who really matter", and it was Piers who had described JK in such a wonderful way and placed her 97th on the list.

Rowling laid a cunning trap for Morgan, by innocently tweeting what appeared to be Valentines' message from one of her fans.

This all kicked off when JK Rowling shared a video of Piers Morgan being sworn at on a United States chat show on Friday night.

Morgan replied: "This is why I've never read a single word of Harry Potter".

Piers took the bait and retorted to the tweet saying Rowling plays the celebrity game 'abusively and ruthlessly'.

Rowling is now in a full-blown Twitter war with "Good Morning Britain" host and general loud mouth Piers Morgan, which kicked off this weekend.

Author JK Rowling has denied reports that she is releasing 12 "Harry Potter" short stories for Christmas this month via her site Pottermore.
