The Japanese Prime Minister’s Office has set up an English-language Twitter account to update the Twitterverse (and the rest of the world) on the aftermath of the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan.

Japan is still coping up with the disaster and also a possible nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Power Plant. However, much credit has been given to the calmness and strength of the Japanese people who are setting a great example to the rest of the world.

The english version of its Twitter account is certainly a great way for the world to stay connected with the events happening in Japan and to also avoid false rumours which easily speculate over Twitter and the Internet. Social media in general too has been a vital tool for the Japanese to get in touch with their loved ones and in providing information and news about the situation there.

Our prayers are with Japan and hope they will come out of this disaster as a strong nation we have always known as.
