Tom Nook’s Week-Long Twitter Takeover: A Review

We might have to stan. Yes, yes!

Tom Nook on Twitter

7

For the last nine days (and near foreseeable future), Tom Nook has been running the official Animal Crossing Twitter account instead of Isabelle. We review his tweeting skills.

PROS
  • Yes, yes!
  • He's so good at marketing Nook Inc.
  • Busy preparing for millions of customers, yet still takes time to tweet. Very good at updating his fanbase.
  • Has been steadily providing important Check-In Procedures and new footage.
  • Shouted out Isabelle as "one of our most valuable Nook Inc. support staff members," showing his appreciation for his employees even when they're on vacation.
CONS
  • Burnout is real. He's at PAX this weekend, preparing the package, and tweeting. Is he okay?
  • Calls Twitter users "friends," encouraging parasocial relationships.
  • No interactions with his fans or antis.
  • Could use a selfie or two.
  • His habit of saying, "Hm?" in conversations feels redundant since he's typing. Save character space.
  • Timmy and Tommy deserve to tweet too, as a treat. Also, they probably have better memes.
