Support for Japan

Our thoughts, sympathy, and support go out to those in Japan affected by Friday’s powerful earthquake and resulting tsunami.

On our Twitter Japan blog, we share tips and resources to help people around the world provide support and share and follow important information. The post is in both Japanese and English. In it you can find which hashtags people are using to communicate about the earthquake, learn about a new section of our mobile website (available for users in Japan) that has the latest information about the earthquake, and discover useful message boards and other sites. We’ll be updating this blog post as we discover more tools and useful information.

Yesterday, we also posted additional information on how to help people in Japan and accounts to follow to stay up-to-date on what’s going on in Japan on our Hope 140 blog.
