    Unless there's pictures, not much value in following them.

    Eg, Yamaguchi (the Revoltech designer) has Japanese tweets, BUT he posts a LOT of toy pictures, which makes his feed worth following.

    Yeah, I fear they will be bombarded by questions from everyone everywhere and be forced to close it down. Well, that or they don't take questions at all and just post stuff themselves (most likely).

    "When will Character X come out? Will we ever get a toy of such-and-such? Why do your toys look so much nicer than Hasbro's toys? Why can't you sell your toys in the United States?"

    Yeah, I don't see this ending well...

    Any bets on how quickly they get a "Why won't you/when will you reissue Fort Max?" question?

    Not much, I'd imagine. Just because they'd have a Twitter account doesn't exactly mean they'd be responding to/retweeting from people who talk to them.

    The translation came to this:

    10 people a chance to follow them on Twitter? What is this some kind of contest?

    Lemme guess, to cut out all the crap they pick 10 people, post up news, and have them run to the hills to inform the rest of us.

    Meh.
