X Freaks Twitter Army summon: guidelines, how to join, FAQ

FAQ

WHAT IS THIS?

Recently the idea came up on discord that we could actually do something productive and be a little more active in
1. promoting X Japan on social media
2. having international fans' voices heard by X Japan management

Our role models are BTS fans, whose Twitter army literally made the band known worldwide by trending them with active and massive use of hashtags, tagging, retweets and overall being really active on social media.

Now, we are realistic, we know the limitations of X's genre and the size of Jrock fandoms, but still, the same tactic could work for X Japan, too. At least to show management that we are active and here, waiting for the band and we are as enthusiastic as Japanese fans are, regardless of album releases.

HOW WILL THIS WORK?

We will try to make this as simple as we can, so you don't have to sit on your Twitter account 24/7  ;)

There will be campaigns tied to X Japan activities and anniversaries, ie. concerts, TV appearances, member birthdays, album releases (LOL, I know ;) )

All you have to do is
1. join our Twitter/social media army by posting under this thread saying "I wanna join" (or anything you feel like saying)
2. log into your social media account (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, any or all of these)
3. Copy the text from the campaign page [this thread will be updated with latest campaigns]
4. Send to your followers using the hashtags (#thisisasamplehashtag) given and tagging the official accounts [@thisisasampletagging] [you won't have to do this manually, the campaign page will give you the pre-formatted text] IMPORTANT: make the post public, so it can reach people outside your sphere of friends.
5. Congratulations, you are done! It's going to be literally 2 minutes (if you use all 3 platforms)
BONUS STEP: If you feel like helping out a little more, you can engage in conversation with other fans on Twitter, hashtaging #XJAPAN #Yoshiki #Toshl etc. Or reply to member tweets, preferably using hashtags too.

Hashtags are like little flags, they trend on Twitter and the more a hashtag is used the higher it climbs on the trending ladder, and exposes the content more. Our team hashtag is #XFREAKS

Waaaaait a second... This whole social media thing is to promote the band X Japan, right? But you're posting a link to the forum in that tweet. Not sure if promoting the forum on social media is a good idea, since there is right now still a lot of work going on the forum (the new forum design, new features, etc.)

Maybe it would be better to not do that at the moment.

While I'm away, read this line again...

I don't think that promoting the forum would be a bad idea just because the design is changing. It's fully functional and we advertise the forum on discord all the time, and nb encourages everyone to post on the forum, too. Changing designs won't affect the users so much that we should stop recruiting new folks... That's my opinion. I have been advertising the forum before this campaign too, wherever and whenever I could.

Omg, it's going to be released on the same day when I start university. Okay, not start, but the opening ceremony and all that jazz is on the 3rd. :D Cool, I love the idea! The hashtag could be something like: Congrats_Toshl, or Cake_for_Toshl

I agree! Looks more like a hashtag for one thing.  Just looks good.  Let's do this one, ok? But whatever everyone wants is ok by me.

Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone

New task for the army: support the 2 days Makuhari Messe concerts with a tweet. Example: https://twitter.com/TeemeahX/status/1044994698740465669 You can tag the members, too, if you want. :)
