Trollope: JK is Kim Kardashian of books.

Byline: FRANCESCA GOSLING reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

AUTHOR Joanna Trollope has attacked JK Rowling for spouting off on Twitter.

The City Of Friends writer claimed Rowling was like Kim Kardashian because of her "insatiable" appetite for social media.

Harry Potter creator Rowling regularly shares her views on politics with her 10.3million Twitter followers.

But Trollope described artists who air their opinions in that way as being driven by their ego.

She said: "Creating this mass following and tweeting several times a day is like wanting to be Cheryl or Kim Kardashian.

"Some writers like JK Rowling have this insatiable need and desire to be out there all the time, and that's entirely driven by their ego."
