In the case of Twilight, I felt it targeted adolescents specifically. Not just because of the age and situation of the characters. It was an extremely fast-paced read and didn't have the character development that the HP series had.
Aside from the fact that Harry Potter was popular, and that Twilight is now popular, I don't see a huge similarity between the books. Besides, at least at this point in time, I believe that Twilight is waning (especially the books) and a void is ready to be filled by the next big hit!
I feel that Twighlight, while at first is directed toward the high-school aged teen, it progresses too quickly in that, some inappropriate subjects are brought up. I think the sexuality of the book was a little to intense for teens.
Did I enjoy both? Sure.
Would I read them both over again, indefinitely? Nope. I pooped out after a second read-through of the first three Twilight books (couldn't even convince myself to read Breaking Dawn again. No thanks!), but have read all of the HP books at least 5 or 6 times through.
Some people like pancakes for breakfast, some people like eggs. If I had to pick just one, I'd pick eggs, because they keep me satisfied longer. But that's just personal preference.

Also, Harry Potter was great because the story progressed as I grew up. I got to grow up with the characters, which I think is what makes the series so good.
