Japanese Women spam launches campaign to Obama’s account to prevent the signing of the TPP
The U.S. president, Barack Obama, is in the midst of the campaign for reelection in the United States. In this perspective, it is logical that his name appears more than usual in social networks. However, there is one person that sends more messages than anyone else in the world to the official account @barackobama , and is not an ardent follower, not a fervent opponent, but a woman from Japan.
According to a project of the University of Indiana , which tracks memes and popular people on Twitter, no more messages sent Obama to @sazare1 . She tweets in Japanese, with just a couple of messages in English precarious, and its mission is: to call the U.S. president not to sign the TPP .
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a free trade Agreement in the Asia-Pacific, which seeks to regulate multiple issues, including intellectual property. Agreement is secret, so no one knows what kind of restrictions might apply to this issue, which has led many to fear that is an expansion of the law SOPA that tried to pass the United States. The countries participating in this agreement are Chile, Peru, Brunei, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Japan, Vietnam and the United States.
According to @sazare1, if you get to sign, will be terrible for all countries, so we started this campaign to try to point it out. There is something touching about this twittera effort, you should know that it is unlikely that his message – no matter how much I repeat – will be read by the president of the United States, thousands of miles away. But just posting and posting continues without stopping.
In Japan, many fear that the agreement may also affect workers. Said @sazare1 According to Daily Dot , its aim is to draw attention to the treaty and that people know it exists. A new round of negotiations began this week, but still has lifted the secrecy surrounding the deal.
