Akimoto Manatsu, who graduated from Nogizaka46 last month, launched her Twitter account (@manatsusanstaff) on March 7.
In her first tweet, Akimoto wrote, "Hello everyone! This is Akimoto Manatsu," and shared that she would be holding an Instagram live that same day. However, fans didn't notice that the account belonged to the ex-idol; by the time she went live on Instagram, she only had four followers.
During her Instagram live, Akimoto announced the opening of her official website and fan club site. An app is also scheduled to launch in the coming days.
