A man riding on the coattails of the recently announced Pottermore website for adoring Harry Potter fans, has created one of his own named Twimore, for vampire-loving Twihards everywhere.
The website has caused an outrage among both the "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" fans. The JK Rowling following has accused 22-year-old Kaleb Nation of being unoriginal and the "Twilight" series unworthy of being in the same realm as the "Harry Potter" series.
"Twilight" fans have been bombarding the creator with e-mails asking to be the first to have access to this “exclusive” site. What these angered and frantic fans do not know is that the website is a complete parody of the original announcement made by J.K. Rowling about the interactive Pottermore website.
Kaleb Nation is just a talented YouTube video creator who happened to be the first to think of the idea to do the parody and was actually shocked that no one had done it already, not knowing he would spark such a reaction from "Twilight" fans and haters alike.
“My email inbox is stuffed with people begging for early access to Twimore. I'm not sure how many of these are serious. I'm flattered that my web design and video production skills are so convincing!,” he said in an e-mail interview with the Huffington Post.

The filmmaker who has met "Twilight’s" creator Stephanie Meyer in the past said that although he had not sent the video over to the author, it has been on all of her major fan sites and even the movie's official Facebook page, so she has probably already seen it.
“She has such a great sense of humor I'm sure she'd laugh about it too,” he said about the author.
Kaleb confessed that the worst response he has received so far is from angered Harry Potter fans
“Surprisingly, the worst hate mail I've gotten this week has come from Harry Potter fans. 99% of them get it, but 1% are absolutely outraged, and so intensely blinded by this anger that they simply cast away all reason. This 1% also has so much trouble with spelling and grammar in their emails; I'm surprised they even read books at all.”
Kaleb says the ride has been “exciting and unbelievable.” There have been over 250,000 visitors in 4 day and even had to pay for a $200 web hosting upgrade. Although the site is not real, there are surely millions of "Twilight" fans that wish there was some truth behind this Twimore parody.
