This is an update on my previous post about our lawmakers and politicians using Twitter to update the people yesterday about what is happening inside the Batasang Pambansa whereing President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is delivering her 9th State of the Nation Address.
It seems the good Senator Pia Cayetano was able to access my blog that's why she responded with another twitter post concerning the spelling and grammatical errors. :)
So I responded to her
para di ako makulong and told her that it's ok. :)
One good thing about this twitter is we get to interact with "big" people like them. They let us know their thoughts, and we, also, are given the chance to tell them what we think.
I am not able to watch the whole of the SONA so I just waited for the late night news Saksi to catch a glimpse of the SONA highlights.
One quotable quote from the SONA would be GMA's tirade against Senator and Presidential wannabe Mar Roxas:
"To those who want to be President, this advice: .....don’t say bad words in public"
She was speaking, of course, of the incident in one rally in Ayala, Makati wherein Mar Roxas cursed in front of the many people at the rally. Roxas later received a lot of negative comments about his misbehaving in public.
For those who missed the SONA, you may read the full text here.
Etc. Etc. Etc.
• Saksi, the late night GMA News program featured our politicians who resorted to using Twitter during the SONA. Pia and Chiz's Twitter accounts, which I followed during the event, were even featured.
Inquirer.net also has a news bit about this here.
• Manny Pacquiao was present during the SONA, and he was also acknowledged by Madam GMA during her speech,
I wonder, though if he was able to enjoy the whole of the speech .
• The controversial announcement the people has been waiting for didn't arrive. We didn't hear about PGMA's plans after 2010.
• The militant groups, as expected, staged their own SONA con rally outside the Batasan Complex. They, however, were drenched with the heavy rains yesterday at the area.
