Since Twitter added support for Japanese hashtags, “#aruaru” on which users tweet common things that happen to a certain group of people has been popular.
“Aruaru” is a Japanese spoken word that translates as “it happens, it happens.”
For example, if it’s “#Japanese aruaru,” it goes like “as is often the case for Japanese people, they bow when they see their boss on a street.”
