Gizmodo points out that the Prime Minister of Japan resigned and then headed straight to Twitter where he asked people to keep following him:

I announced my intention to resign as Prime Minister today, in order to make the Democratic Party clean again for the sake of the people. From now on I will stop being PM but want to continue to tweet as a normal person. Please keep following me…

Maybe he'll be Facebook friends with me! We can play Farmville!
