Now, at first, this might seem counter-intuitive. "What are you talking about, Liz?", you say. "People on Twitter only speak English. It is the 'official language' of Twitter. Speaking another language would be unAmerican!" How very, very wrong you are.
Scientific Proof? Look at these very popular, HOT, TOP Twitter accounts who have racked up hundreds, no, thousands of followers by utilizing an exotic language from the Far East:

An all too common assumption that newcomers to Twitter have is that only people with U.S. citizenship can use Twitter. That is simply not true, Twitter loosened that requirement when they let @StephenFry open an account. Now, not only people who don't live in the San Francisco Bay Area but also people from other countries (!) and who speak foreign languages are "allowed" to use Twitter provided they do not use it to organize a takeover of our government.

"But," you ask, "I don't know Japanese. Won't it take me a long time to learn a foreign language? Well, yes, it might take you a few years of constant study to master Japanese. After all, they do refuse to use our alphabet despite its clear superiority.

But consider how slowly your Follower count is growing right now. Pretty sad, isn't it? In the time it takes you to learn and happily start Tweeting away in Japanese, odds are that your Follower number will only have increased by the few new friends you've made over the coming year. And unless you're in elementary school, how many new friends do you really make each year? Be honest. I thought so. : (
But take Step 4 and your Follower number is not only guaranteed to increase but you'll be bilingual! You can charm and offend people in several different countries from the comfort of your kitchen table.
