Bleach Creator Tite Kubo Suddenly Leaves Twitter
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Following in the footsteps of voice actor Toshiyuki Toyonaga, the usually active Tite Kubo has suddenly quit Twitter on Thursday. He offered no explanation, only writing the day before, "[Notice] Tomorrow night, after about 24 hours I will delete my Twitter account. Until that time, please direct message me."
Following his departure, Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine posted a notice on Friday stating that false photos originating on Twitter are being spread online that are being passed off as photos of Kubo. The magazine's editorial department added that "such acts infringe upon the personal rights of Tite Kubo," and stated that they will pursue legal action to deal with the matter in the case of malicious intent.
