Masumi Asano’s Commentary
Well, this week’s comic is about Twitter. Nowadays, lots of seiyuu use Twitter, from the big names to the new faces. I am one of them. I currently have 100,000 followers. With this many followers a single Tweet should get lots of replies, or so you would think… Right? …Actually, The number of replies is surprisingly low!
The lowest level is announcements. Tweets like, ‘We have a guest today’, or ‘Going on the air soon’ get minimal replies. If a photo is attached, the amount goes up by a little, but it’s still not that many. When I see this sometimes I think, “Is that 100,000 number really true?”
One day, driven by my suspicions, I resorted to somewhat drastic measures. I took a close up photo of my elbow and tweeted it. When I did that, a huge number people replied and I though, ‘Hey! Where have you all been!’ It was the first time that I felt like, ‘Ah, I really do have 100,000 followers’ haha. By the way, it seems like the elbow picture was mistaken for something obscene because it got deleted almost right away. Everyone, watch out for super realistic fake butt photos.
Now, people all have different ways of using Twitter. For the next few weeks, I think I’ll be writing about common Twitter occurrences.
And so, until next week!
