Out of Toilet Paper? Then Twitter

Imagine you are at large electronics store in Japanese otaku mecca Akihabara. Imagine you go to the bathroom and *ahem* take a dump. Imagine that there is no toilet paper in said bathroom. What would you do?

If you were self-styled anime song DJ, DJ Kacho, you'd call for help via the internet. Last week, he did just that, sending out an urgent tweet that read: "Urgent request, toilet paper in Akihabara Yodobashi Camera 3rd floor men's restroom".
The toilet paper arrived nearly twenty minutes later, and DJ Kacho was able to go on with the rest of his day. Twitter is good for something, getting toilet paper, for instance!

It says, "Emergency! I'm in the 3rd floor men's room at Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara and there's no toilet paper!"
