mokalol0617: To the pregnant women. Please announce the fact that you are pregnant, and seek priority help. People cannot tell you’re pregnant if you’re still in the early stages. For those who are around pregnant women or infants, please hear them out. Many women have given birth to healthy babies even in times of war, so there’s no need to worry.

uotugugirl: 11/3 1657: Everyone, it may be troublesome, but please add the date and time to your retweets, like this. Old news may continue circling on Twitter, so “informative” news may become “harmful” news as they get older.

risa_19980408: Though tweets with information are important, please also update with small tweets like “I’m fine” or “What should I do?” or “Help me”. Even if you’re all alone physically, you will surely get a reply from someone. There are many people online who know what to do, or have experience with earthquakes. We are all worried about everyone. So talk to us. We’re here for you.
