Tokyo: AAJA to host special lecture by Twitter star Daisuke Tsuda

Whether you’re just starting to experiment with SNS as a journalistic tool, or you’re already a savvy user, any reporter covering Japan can hope to learn from Daisuke Tsuda, a leading Twitter pioneer with more than 196,000 followers.

His bio on his Twitter account @tsuda reads: “born in Tokyo and raised on the Internet.” A teacher at Waseda University and sometimes rock bassist, Tsuda gets simultaneously adored and bashed in cyberspace — the truest sign of online stardom. AAJA-Tokyo member Yuri Kageyama (@yurikageyama) featured him in an Associated Press article. He has also appeared in other publications such as Aera magazine.

  1. Hi Yuri and Daisuke! I’m an AAJA member based in Hong Kong. I’m currently in the US and unable to attend this great lecture. Any chance that this lecture will be live-streamed or we can see a video later on? Also would there be anyone live-tweeting this event? If so, what twitter hashtag should I follow? Many thanks! – Wendy
