Pretty much the same points made as in their forum post in the earlier thread here, actually a day before the twitter post in question.

Good that the ink is available again.

From the article:

Animators found themselves in a similar situation in 2015 when Mitsubishi Pencil announced it would no longer produce colored pencils favored by the animation industry. Cartoonists flocked to art supply stores to buy up the remaining orange, blue and yellow-green pencils used to draw cels.

That doesn't seem right. What productions in 2015 were using cells, and even when they did, wouldn't they have used paint or ink instead of colored pencils, or were the pencils used only to do the outlines?

This is a very vague guess, but blue pencils are uniformly used to draw lines that won't be picked up by older photocopiers. So maybe that particular brand was for a similar purpose? Or maybe anime has a more or less standard method for denoting what colors mean what on key frames. In Shirobako, it looked like orange was primarily for skin outlines, blue for hair, and green-yellows for eyes, but I might be remembering it all wrong.

Rather than cells, perhaps they meant another part of the production, like story boards or animatics?

The article probably should have said "genga" instead of "cels". Colored pencils are used to do corrections on the regular black pencil drawings.
