Twitter Popular Word Ranking for the month of June

BIGLOBE's information site for Twitter users, Twipple Trend reported the monthly ranking for the month of June. The ranking was accumulated from June 1st to July 1st with 1,946,707,080 of total tweets and 64,890,236 tweets on daily average.

The most discussed anime-related word by the Japanese Twitter users in the month was "Regina," the name of a girl from PreCure TV series, Dokidoki!PreCure. The word "Regina" was ranked in the 7th place in the monthly overall ranking, followed by the title of the previous TV series Smile PreCure! on the 8th. 

The reason why the Smile's title suddenly appeared in the ranking instead of the current series Dokidoki! was that the word was tweeted by the official twitter account of Toru Hashimoto, the controversial mayor of Osaka-city on June 1. And it was retweeted more than 100,000 times in three days. It was explained later that the word was posted by his daughter in the first grade, and Hashimoto was not a fan of PreCure at all.
