Too bad Hermione can't make technology disappear. It seems Twitter is one more irritation for Emma Watson as she begins school in the hallowed halls of Rhode Island's Brown University, CNN reports. First, a dad annoyed Emma last week when he snapped her photo as she walked around school grounds with her mom and beau Jay Barrymore. Then the photo-snapper's daughter had the gall to Twitter the world about it.

Emma's not the only one who has been nailed by a pesky techie stalker. Actor James Franco was snapped earlier this year dozing during one of his lectures at Columbia University. The photo, posted online, triggered a chorus of Tweets. (More James Franco stories.)
