I'm not Japanese but as a young man I was influenced by Japanese culture as I was formerly a well trained Judoka and national champion for the small country I currently live in. The name Judo in Japanese means "gentle art" and years of discipline and training with frequent "kata randori" enabled me to win competitions using techniques for throwing and grappling that I had rehearsed thousands of times. The Japanese also impressed me later on in life with their serious attitude toward business and their commitment to produce quality products. One of my favourite Japanese dishes is Katsu Don. In 2011, the Japanese have impressed me with their Twitter power.
JAPAN SETS NEW WORLD RECORD FOR TWITTER
According to Jenna Sampson (spokeswoman for Twitter) the Japanese broke the Twitter frequency record with a whopping 6939 Tweets per second by tweeting their "Happy New Year" wishes to friends , colleagues and families on the eve of the 2011 New Year. There is a large Twitter base in Japan who are eager to follow others back and help them grow their Twitter Network. To follow back in Twitter is probably now considered to be a courtesy in the Japanese Tweeting world.
TWITTER GIVES FACEBOOK A BEATING IN JAPAN
According to sources such as http://www.allfacebook.com/japan-apparently-prefers-twitter-over-facebook-2010-11 the Japanese language http://www.mixi.jp is strong competition for Facebook but Twitter is ranked just under Mixi.
JAPANESE TWEETERS BELIEVE IN INTERNET COURTESY
If you are fed up with people who don't follow back or who don't read tweets that you believe are interesting then hook up with Tweeters from Japan and try to learn a little Japanese if you can because there are tons of Japanese Tweeters who are trying to improve their english by using Twitter. One good thing about microblogging with Twitter is that you are limited to 140 characters but consider that too many words/text can be oppressive when you are trying to learn another language. Translating bit by bit, a day at a time, is a good way to pick up a language.
