@KazHiraiSCE on twitter?

#1 Posted by n8 (264 posts) -

Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but I must know.  Is @KazHiraiSCE on twitter the real Kaz?  Doesn't seem real... because he only has a few hundred followers.  But his tweets are epic!  Loving that shit. 

Please let me know.  Thanks in advance.  :-)

"Announcer of prices, Lover of Ridge Racer, owner of giant hands. (Disclaimer: not really, of course. PARODY ACCOUNT)"


  That's exactly what it says on his twitter account. It's also extremely obvious from the tweets that this guy is parodying Kaz Hirai.

Yep.  Thought it might be possible that he was just trying to throw people off by the "parody account" bit? 

Not possible?

If it really was him, why would he say it's a parody account and act like a complete idiot in his tweets?

Chances are he would have one of those little verified things if it was the real person.

Look I'm not disagreeing with you.  Guess I just REALLY wanted it to be the real Kaz.  :-( 

And, none of his tweets are idiotic in my opinion.  Not very professional (if he was actually an exec of course)... but most of his statements are spot-on.

Why would a CEO of one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world try to "throw people off" by writing that his account is not legit?

Dude, you don't need Kaz. You should follow DAVID HAYTER. HE HAS A TWITTER NOW.

@n8:  Ah, just noticed this..

I write this twitter feed. And no, my name isn't Kaz Hirai unfortunately. Sorry if you were tricked by it, I'm not trying to convince people I actually am Kaz.

Glad you liked my tweets though :-)
