Urata’s Twitter Accounts suspended

Just to let you know, he’s not planning to make a new account -the whole thing should be sorted out soon so watch out for accounts imitating him! Also the USSS_info account is down too??????

Urata’s LINE message:

Urata: From now on I have to send messages from here!

For some reason my Twitter and Sub accounts have been completely suspended 。゚(゚ノД`゚)゚。

However, I’m OK so everyone please don’t worry about me! (*゚∀゚*)

Urata: I guess, it’s probably because I tweeted “po”..


Urata: (photo of ‘soil’ ice cream)

Urata: Yesterday I ate soil.. Today will the soil stop..

Urata: It seems that there are accounts imitating me so please be careful okay?

If I make a new account, and my friends don’t say anything and I don’t announce it on LINE@, then you know that something’s up!

Urata: Everyone, Impersonation is something really bad, but harassing the person behind the account is also bad!

I don’t like that kind of behaviour, it’s just like what an anti would do!

For now let’s just stay silent and block their spam

I’m glad that so many people are thinking of me, but I hope you do not fill everyone’s timelines with nasty things

Urata: If you’re going to tweet, tweet about something fun you did today, or something funny, which I think is even better!

Urata: Right now my stomach hurts (overate)

Urata: Good night-tanuki!!!!!

also the other utaite’s reactions to this are so funny ww uratas gonna kill you guys when he comes back

Sakata: I’ll never forget you, Urataniki

Mafumafu: Urata’s Twitter (main and sub) seems to have been suspended, and right now we’re looking for a way to recover. The person himself was rolling around the slide and dryly laughing and saying ‘just joke about it~!!!’ in desparation and desolation. I’m very worried about him, so for the time being I’ll protect him.

Amatsuki: Uratan will continue to live in our hearts

Thank you, Uratan

See you soon, Uratan

Recently I’ve been feeling especially cold, so please take care of yourself, Urata-san

The key to growing edibles in a time of drought is healthy soil. In the same way that our bodies depend on millions of microscopic organisms to stay functional and in balance, healthy soil is host to a microscopic world that gives it—and the plants that grow in it—the necessary building blocks for a healthy ecosystem. The organisms in the soil create and maintain the pathways through which water and nutrients travel. Without happy soil life, you don’t have soil—you just have dirt.

On VERSO, research horticulturist and Huntington Ranch Garden coordinator Kyra Saegusa talks soil health and sheet mulching.

TURKEY, Gaziantep : Mourners react over coffins in Gaziantep on July 21, 2015, during a funeral ceremony for victims following a suicide bomb attack the day before which killed at least 31 in the southern Turkish town of Suruc. A suspected Islamic State suicide bomber killed at least 31 people in an attack on a Turkish cultural centre in the southern town of Suruc, where activists had gathered to prepare for an aid mission in the nearby Syrian town of Kobane. It was one of the deadliest attacks in Turkey in recent years and the first time the government has directly accused the IS group of carrying out an act of terror on Turkish soil.
