His Twitter URL is http://twitter.com/D1sk61316

I'm very excited that Dai joined Twitter! A fair amount of other skaters have twitter, but only a few Japanese skaters do (like Akiko Suzuki and Miki Ando). I've actually been wishing he had an account, so this is a nice surprise. Maybe it'll give us more insight into how his condition is (like how well his injury is healing), and things like that. Also, you can write to him on twitter, if you ever want to send him an encouraging message or ask a question.

If you don't have a twitter account, if you go to www.twitter.com and click sign up, it should be pretty easy to make one. It takes a little while to get used to how it works, but once you adjust it is pretty simple. Smile

I think it`s cool not to surf the net, not writing etc.
I adore Dai`s articles in Japanese newspaper.
Besides, he has blog in Kansai univ.site. Cool

Daisuke hasn't tweeted in a few days Sad He was probably getting ready for nationals though. I just wanted to say when I saw him and Nana talking about SPEC it made me so happy because I also watched and really liked that drama! haha

More and more Japanese skaters seem to be getting in to twitter. It's a trend I approve of! Very Happy

Shatterpoint, I have a Twitter account, but I was wondering whether it was really possible to send Daisuke an encouraging message or ask him a question. As he has more than 11,000 followers, but only follows about 32 others (of which I am not one), how would he get to see any message of encouragement I send? I must admit, I'm not really that knowledgeable about how Twitter works, so if you have any advice, that'd be wonderful!. Smile

It is possible to send him a message by hitting the reply button to one of his tweets or typing @ and then his username from your twitter homepage.

I'm not sure how well he can read english and I've never seen him reply to a fan, but many skaters seem to read messages they receive on their twitter accounts and while they usually don't reply to individual messages, sometimes they thank their fans as a whole for the messages if they've been getting a lot of them, like after competitions, etc. Smile

I really hope he doesn't retire Crying or Very sad but after reading this through google translate it seems that Worlds is going to be his last competition..

http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20110221-00000250-sph-spo

Maybe you can do a better translation? I couldn't understand everything just that he's not really sure... maybe he will miss next season because of the surgery on his knee but I hope he doesn't retire yet Rolling Eyes

I agree. I'd rather him take a season off to recover and take a well deserved rest, and then come back and show us more beautiful performances.


I think part of the reason his possible retirement is so sad to think about is the season he missed due to his knee; from the translations I've read on here and elsewhere from his books, it sounds like the time off did do him some good, allowing him to fall in love with skating more again. I'm so, so glad for that, but having him missing for a whole season was tough, and it prevented us from another season of lovely performances, so for him to retire now feels rather soon ( though I think it will seem really soon no matter when he leaves, because we'll all miss him so much. Laughing )

I want him to do what will make him happy, hopefully, that will be continuing to compete. I really feel like as much as Daisuke has done for skating in Japan and skating in general, that he still has more to show us; he says he wants to show as many different things in his skating as possible while he competes, so maybe that will be some motivation.

Oh! I hope God will give him the power to move on and the motivation to continue!
I so agree with u!
He didn't show yet all that he can do!

I also want him to do what makes him happy but I will be so incredibly sad if he retires. Crying or Very sad Dai has so much more to give to figure skating with his performances. He could continue to grow artistically as a pro but would his foreign fans (those of us outside of Japan) get a chance to see those performances?

I think Dai wants to continue to be involved in skating post-competitive career so I think there will still be opportunities for his fans that don't live in Japan to see him perform. He's already proved his artistry through both his own performances and pieces he's choreographed himself, so he still has a great (and lengthy) future if he wants it on the show circuit (demonstrating all the beautiful dance, expression and passion that we love him for and that don't depend so much on age), as well as in doing things to encourage and bring up the next generation of skaters. But the possibility of Dai's retirement from competitive skating this year makes me all the more determined to make the most of the up coming Worlds experience, my first (and possibly last) time to see Dai compete on this stage. peace1
