Polite Twitter speak in Japanese?


#1

So I’ve noticed Japanese Twitter users sometimes say 失礼します when jumping into threads (which kind of cracks me up), but… anyone know what FF外から失礼します means? What’s FF?


#2

Does this help:

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/FF外


#3

Saw this on Kotaku US a few weeks ago:

TL;DR: it means “follow” and “follower”


#4

Thanks @rfindley and @feoya! That clears it up. Also that illustration in the Kotaku article is perfect haha


#5

I’m totally with the Kotaku article. FF means Finally Fantasy. Forever.

(Haha.)


#6

Yeah honestly I was stuck trying to come up with some connection between Final Fantasy and cats (because obviously most of the tweets I read are about cats…)


#7

Wouldn’t that be FFF?


#8

There are some characters with cat ears… … sometimes…
