Japan’s Prime Minister Tweets His Farewell

9 hours later of his expressing intention to resign Japan’s prime minister job, the first tweeting prime minister, who boasts the most popular Japanese Twitter user, posted his first tweet today.
本日、総理の職を辞する意思を表明しました。国民の皆さんの声がまっすぐ届く、クリーンな民主党に戻したいためです。これからは総理の立場を離れ、人間としてつぶやきたいと思っています。引き続きお付き合い下さい。


Today, I made a statement to resign as prime minister. It is to take back clean Democratic Party of Japan to listen to the straight voices of the people. From now, leaving the prime minister’s position, I would like to keep tweeting as one human being. I look forward to your continued support.
