Studio Ghibli announced terminating it's Twitter Account

Studio Ghibli, the acclaimed animation studio, has announced that it will be closing its official Twitter account at midnight on 3 November. The studio joined Twitter in December 2020 and has since amassed over 1.8 million followers who have enjoyed seeing behind-the-scenes moments shared by staff. Fans were taken by surprise when the tweet appeared at 6:00 p.m. on 2 November, giving them only six hours' notice of the sudden closure.

The message shared with the tweet reads: "Studio Ghibli's official Twitter account will be terminated as of 12:00 a.m. on 3 November. We would like to thank all the many people who supported this account, which started three years ago in preparation for the release of Hayao Miyazaki's 'The Boy and the Heron'. We sincerely thank you. The movie will continue to be shown through the year-end and New Year holidays.

11/3 午前0:00 をもって、スタジオジブリの公式Twitterアカウントを終了します。

While the reason for the closure of Ghibli's official Twitter account hasn't been formally announced, it is speculated that this could be related to the recent acquisition of the studio by Nippon TV.

It is worth noting that Studio Ghibli's North American account and Ghibli Park's account are still up and running. However, if you'd like to keep some of the behind-the-scenes photos and stories from the studio's official Japanese account, now's the time to screenshot those moments before they disappear forever.
