Social Media Roundup: Guess Who Joined Instagram!

Welcome back, all you wonderful Muggles, witches, and wizards! It is time to catch up with some of the stars of the Wizarding World in this latest edition of MuggleNet’s Social Media Roundup! A lot has happened during the past two weeks, hasn’t it? During the past two weeks, there was the final voting and results in the United States presidential election, and November 11 was a day of remembering and celebrating military veterans. Plus, a Harry Potter actor joined Instagram, and another reached 1 million followers on Twitter.

It was hard to keep from being excited about this news: Harry Potter fans were overjoyed to find out that Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) joined Instagram. In his first post, he shared a photo of himself holding his daughter, Wednesday. Grint has been on Instagram for just a short time and already has 3.1 million followers, breaking the Instagram record for the fastest time to a million followers.

On her Instagram account, Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) spoke to Reimagine LA co-chair Eunisses Hernandez about Measure J. Measure J would see 10% of the unrestricted revenue of Los Angeles County, California, US, go to a fund that “addresses the disproportionate impact of racial injustice through community investment and alternatives to incarceration, prohibiting using those funds for carceral systems or law enforcement agencies.”

A few days later, the announcement was made that there will be a new president and vice president in the White House when the inauguration takes place in January of 2021. Joe Biden will be the new president of the United States, and Kamala Harris will be the vice president. This win was monumental for various reasons, mainly because Harris will be the first woman and first Black and Indian American woman to be elected as vice president. Extending their congratulations to the president-elect and vice president–elect were Ron Perlman (Gnarlak), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Katie Leung, and Zoë Kravitz.

“Lest we forget.” On November 11, some Potter actors, including Jason Isaacs, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, and Luke Youngblood (Lee Jordan), shared their support and appreciation for veterans of the armed forces. On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, countries around the world remember their sacrifices with silence as the “Last Post” is played by trumpet.
