I've been in the fandom for quite a while now(I joined mid-2021 I think?) and have always censored their names when tweeting about them. I think one of the several reasons why peoplecensor their names when tweeting is:
- prevents their account from being found out when said oshi does an egosa
- censorship names for when posting nsfw fanart or just sensitive material in general.
- They just don't want to be perceived and imo enforces the streamer-fan boundary
I think there should be a term for not wanting to be recognized by your idol. I get a whole existential crisis lmao. Like I went to a BTS fanmeet before and they just waved at me and after that I realized that I'm much better admiring them from afar than up close. Idk man it might be the avoidant attachment style or sth. But yeah rambles~ teehee
