Pattinson, 23, was the first star to post on Summit Entertainment's official Twilight Twitter page, writing "Thank you for making NEW MOON #1. It's very exciting to be a part of something embraced by so many people. I hope you are looking forward to ECLIPSE as much as I am."

His costar — and rumored real-life love interest — followed suit, with three consecutive postings, which were read by Summit's 162,700 followers.

"You all have proven you're the most amazing fans in the world once again," the 19-year-old actress wrote, before echoing Pattinson's appreciative sentiments about making the movie tops at the box office.

"Yes, I twittered," Stewart confirmed. "Or twitted..tweeted? I dunno, but thank you sooo much anyway..!"

The second installment in the Twilight film franchise, New Moon grossed a stellar $140.7 million during its first weekend in theaters, earning $72.7 million on its Friday opening day alone. Its follow-up film, Eclipse, will hit theaters in June.
