Meaning of “TwiDemo(ツイデモ)”
TwiDemo(ツイデモ) is an abstraction for “Twitter Demonstration” which means a demonstration on Twitter.
In Japan, common people don’t join any demonstration on street because most of demonstration are run by fishy interest groups, in my opinion. (I feel there’s no spontaneous demonstration.)
That’s why, common people don’t join any demonstration on street, even if they have some opinions of it, because it’s fishy and we can’t join it anonymously. (We have to expose our face, we can’t use avatar.)
However, TwiDemo(ツイデモ) is more easier to join it, so some common people sometimes join it. To join it, we just tweet with the demonstration’s hashtag. We know most of TwiDemo(ツイデモ) are also run by fishy interest groups (maybe), still, we’d like to show our opinion, if we can do it anonymously.
A: Our government is totally Ataoka. They don’t understand our situation, they are just a Rougai.
B: I know, they don’t understand us, because they are JokyuKokumin!!
A: True, I joined a TwiDemo(ツイデモ) because I couldn’t hold back my anger!
