               ▪ Johnny's Net still labels single as 'Ai, Texas' (愛、テキサス), which is it???
               ▪ Is Yamapi trying to say he's a part of Texas?? He and Texas are one?? (Cue Peyton's lewd jokes)

               ▪ Why are they putting the future of their country in the hands of five random people?!?

I don't know if Kame would be the best user of social media, but he's the one I want to see, because he seems to like spamming with emoji, and it might make for some interesting twitter or facebook posts.
Best... hmm, I think Kanjani8 could make good use of a YouTube channel... it might not always be things we wanted to see, though...
