Miyagi and I, together with Minister Tan Chuan-jin, led the Pledge on Twitter on National Day Eve. It was a lot of fun. Here is the Storify summary of our evening:
Mr Miyagi told Yahoo! Singapore that the idea behind the tweet pledge was first thought up by Mr Brown and himself.
“Brown and I thought it was especially important this year because of what we perceived as rumblings of discontent and a loss of identity as Singaporeans,” he said.
He and Brown subsequently involved politicians Tan Chuan-Jin and PM Lee, adding that PM Lee was "very enthusiastic about it and embraced the idea quickly".
In recent days, several ground-up movements have also sprung up to celebrate Singapore ahead of National Day.
