The Twilight fanbase is not higher. It's only because Twilight has been round for a shorter time than harry potter, so alot of people are declaring how wonderful they think Twilight is and everything. The fan base with HP is still huge, but because alot of the HP fans don't make as much of a scene about it, people think that there are más Twilight fans in the world. I hope that made sense. :)
Harry Potter actually has más fans than Twilight does, it's just that Twilight fans tend to blog o go online más than HP fans, which makes the Twilight fan base seem much bigger than it actually is. But, when tu turn to book sales o movie ticket sale, HP always rolls in más money than Twilight. For example, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was the HP movie with the lowest income, it ranked as the 53rd movie with the highest gross in the U.S.A. of all time, but all the other HP cine did better. Twilight on the other hand, ranked as the 104th on the same list.
Firstly, they don't. Harry Potter still has a far, far greater number of fans, and is much better known. The only reason it seems so is that the peak of Harry Potter's popularity has past. But the fans still exist. Twilight is at its peak. It is what is popular among teenagers today, which is why it is seen more, why the fans are más prominent in society, etc. That doesn't mean there are más fans. But still, Harry Potter is in general much bigger than Twilight - más copies sold, más tickets sold, más awareness, más fans. And the libros are much better anyway.(in my opinion, don't attack me).
Second, even if there were más fans, that doesn't mean Twilight is better. Now which is the better book may be opinion, but I think it can be seen as quite agreeable that Harry Potter is better written - a richer plot, better thought out, makes sense, creates an entire new world. For this reason, many like Harry Potter more. The people who prefer Twilight do so largely based upon their thinking that the characters are 'cooler' that Edward is más attractive, that the romance is emphasised more. This is all opinion. It would neither be considered very valid in arguing that this is why Twilight is better. See what I mean?
Because right now, girls think that the only thing that matters in a book o a movie is hotness of the characters. But that doesn't mean Shitlight has a bigger fanbase because HP sold much más copies...
What Mrs_Grint says is right and i think thats because Twilight is good for girls and boys and both genders can enjoy it. But i reckon Twilight is so popular because tu do not have to think when tu read it. There is no underlying message in the characters o the plot. It is simple and straightforward, it is not thought provoking and it doesn't make tu pregunta your being o your beliefs as some authors can do.
they are both good libros and movies. SOMEONE dicho that twilight fans are más obnoxious, but i dont think so. i like both. oh, and just so tu know, people are just más excited about twilight because no one had really read the libros before the movie came out. and once they did, they thought it was good.
cuz twilight is newer-just wait, in a couple of years people'll be lik "whats twilight? nvr heard of it!" and also lik "i amor the harry potter books, jk rawlings is a fantastic author" so take THAT u temporary twilight fans!!!! :P
Umm, u need to look at the box office sales/ book sales of harry potter vs twilight. Jk rowling has más money than the queen of England. If u realy looked at the statistics, hp has más fans than twilight.
Is this some kind of joke? How closed minded can people be- Harry has soooo many más fans than twilight. Has any of the opening book nights, looked anything like when the Deathly Hallows came out. Also check CAT(Critical Analysis of Twilight) and learn from just one spot how many people amor Harry and how many hate the sparkly vampires. Also twilight fans are loud and are always hyperventallaiting, so they need a blogging spot, but we are sooo much más sophisticated, do tu see us freking out, shaking like maniacs in our asiento when a HP movie comes out...errr...NO! hahaha no one take this too personal, its just HP has más fans, what can I say???
Agree with Renrae but also, fanpop isn't represantative of the whole world... As tu can see, HP kicks culo in every pick here but that doesn't mean HP deserves to win ALL the picks, it's just that HP is más highly represented here than Twilight. It's the same thing for the Twilighters who are on Fanpop.
P.S. Harry Potter IS a better novel than Twilight, but that's just my opinion...
Because of the boum that the movie made and because the obsession fans have for rob patt'z. and also because of the idea of a human being in amor with a vamp,while in Hp the whole terminus it has a wider sense,not only killing voldermort,but saving the world,saving people,and making the world a better and peaceful place
I can't comentario as to which has más fans, but I believe that there are several reasons why Harry Potter would still be the better series: Twilight appeals to the masses because it's quite easy to read. It's light, entertaining and caters to a lot of the themes directed at adolescents. However, if tu compare who is a fan of each series, there is a huge difference. (No offense to any intelligent Twilight fans.) In my experience most Twilight fans read less widely and less challenging books. Many of them only like the series for hormonal reasons, as an embarrasing proportion of the series revolves around describing hot guys. (How many people hated New Moon, because there was no Edward?) As well, many people watch the cine so that they can either drool over the male characters o make fun of the lousy script. (Even fans of the book recognize how ridiculous it was.) Harry Potter, I find, is read por a much más diverse group of people: children and adults, male and female etc., and I beilieve that it will last much longer. It is already tought in universities and the writting and story are genius. While Twilight has a relatively simple story, set in a pre-existing town; Harry Potter has an incredibly complex plot that is both unique (although it may be one of the better 'teen vampire' books, Twilight is still almost identical to many other series), and draws on a great deal of mythology and literature. (It is clear that the series is very well researched, while the mythology in Twilight is not.) There is significantly más in the Harry Potter series: fantasy, adventure, mystery, and some realistic romance. It covers a lot más different topics, más time, más detail, más character development and therefore requires más thought. Last of all there are the messages dado por the books. Harry Potter shows life and the magical situations in the book the way they are. Although it has some very admirable characters, it is honest about mostrando their flaws. For these characters, life is difficult but worth it. Rowling offers opinions on prejudice, courage, compassion and standing up for what tu believe in. Twilight, I'm afraid to say, is quite unrealistic in a bad way. We see Edwards struggle, but it is not entirely believable, because we know that he will stay with Bella in the end. The libros glorify an unhealthy, unrealistic relationship and, although Meyer hardly ever describes her characters in a bad light (they are designed to be perfect, so that we can adular, fawn over them), their actions are never as heroic o as honest as those that we see from the más flawed, but más believable characters in Harry Potter.
Twilight is good at first sight, if tu read it a couple of times tu think its amazing and tu fall in amor with one of the characters. But when tu try to find an underlying message o theme o really anything at all, tu can't find one. Most people don't even bother to look that far.

First off, I don't know if anyone claims that Harry Potter is the best novel ever...
Second, Harry Potter has OUTSOLD Twilight.
Third, even if Twilight had outsold Harry Potter, it doesn't mean it's a better book.
Like, right now, glee has the most songs total on the Billboard charts. It doesn't mean they're GOOD. I mean, they're all pretty much not-so-great covers. (I kind of like Glee, though. I'm just saying).
Just because something's popular, doesn't mean it's good. Especially nowadays.
