Harry Potter fever is taking over Twitter on the morning of July 2. Twitter users are waving their Twitter wands and casting "Expecto Patronum" charms with their 140 characters in support of the next film in the wizarding series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

"Expecto Patronum" is in the top spot in Twitter's most talked about topics at 9:30 AM GMT. "Expecto Patronum" is followed by the name of action-adventure fantasy film the " Last Airbender".

In third place is the name of British actor "Andrew Garfield". Garfield is trending after the actor nabbed the role of Peter Parker in yet-to-be named Spider-Man film.

The memes "#haveyouevernoticed" and "#icantwaituntil" are new in fourth and fifth places.

"#worldcup" moves up one position to sixth place. The name of the South African blowing horns used to cheer teams in the world cup, "Vuvuzela", is back in the charts at number nine. "Holanda", the Spanish word for Holland, is in eighth place as Dutch fans prepare to watch their team go head to head with Brazil on July 2.

People in Holland are also complaining about the hot weather on Twitter, saying they wish they had an air conditioner ("airco" in Dutch).

The name of the "Wimbledon" tennis tournament is back in the charts tenth place.
