Like many, I’ve gotten into Twitter, posting my random thoughts on life, the universe and everything while passing along information on stuff we’ve posted to the J-List site. It’s interesting to see the amazing variety of people who follow me — Japanophiles from the U.S. and Europe of course, but also out-of-the-way places like Chile, New Zealand, South Africa and even an anime fan from Saudi Arabia. It’s great to be able to have random conversations with people about various topics, and I often throw out questions as I’m blogging to get input and ideas from around the world. I’ve also gotten quite a few Japanese followers, which I think is great since Twitter is the perfect vehicle for Japanese to put the many years of English they’ve studied to use as a “living” language. The problem with Japan is that in the past, the only time knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary has really been needed is during university entrance exams, and there was almost no opportunity to actually use the language. So if you’re on Twitter already or would like to give it a try, follow me and let’s chat!
Of course there had to be Twitter fan art for me to post here, now nice.
