A mysterious person who caused a sensation on Twitter with a parody bot account of the nationally recognized character. With philosophical remarks and witty jokes, the account exploded to more than 240,000 followers. Nakano Hitoyo has used the account’s popularity to disseminate safety information during the Great East Japan Earthquake.
