Fuji Television Network, Inc or Fuji TV is one of Japans major television networks, kind of like an ABC or NBC of Japan. Just months after announcing the intention to air a Japanese drama that features the popular social networking website Twitter, Fuji TV has launched a clone of the same service.
Imatsubu which translates to “Tweeting Now” is just an exact clone of Twitter with the addition of emoticons. Just over a month ago I blogged about another Japan based twitter clone from Ameba but at least they have a user base from their blogging service that can filter across. Not sure why Fuji TV would need a Twitter like service but lets see how it goes.
Follow my rambling on the [original] twitter @Jamaipanese.
