Lacierda Blames Twitter Non-Followers

Presidential Spokesperson Edwin “dawende” Lacierda must really love Twitter because he seemingly endorses it by putting blame on residents who do not follow the twitter account of their Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

Lacierda says that many got surprised with the heavy rains and flooding because “they are obviously not following the DOST twitter account” where the announcements of PAGASA, the weather bureau of the Philippine, were sent.

Huh? In a third world country where the majority of the population has no personal Internet connection, he expects the common people, who are the most likely to be affected by the rain and flash-floods, to have a twitter account?

He then goes on defending himself in Twitter claiming he never quoted on just relying on Twitter, and asks everyone to read the Philippine Daily Inquirer article carefully before jumping into conclusions.


About Ross Del Rosario

I specialized in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). I'm also a public servant, a social media evangelist, and an entrepreneur. My personality is a mix of all genres, with a penchant for the absurd and graphically pleasing. I'm the IT professional who’s more into substance and creativity rather than structure and complexity, the gamer who takes a long time to finish a game because I often lose track of time admiring the eye-candy, and the sci-fi fanatic who who often ponders on the opportunity to experiment on people like lab animals minus the gross stuff like dissecting frogs (this last one is a joke).
