Has someone or someTHING taken over the Twitter account of Regine Velasquez (@reginevalcasid)??

Of late, following a tweet in response to Secretary Teddy Location that went viral, a strange deviation in the quality of the tweets of Filipino singer Regine Velasquez.

Note as follows…

First this

TRESPASS, ENCROACH, INFRINGE, INVADE mean to make inroads upon the property, territory, or rights of another. TRESPASS implies an unwarranted or unlawful intrusion. hunters trespassing on farmland ENCROACH suggests gradual or stealthy entrance upon another’s territory

Then this

or usurpation of another’s rights or possessions. the encroaching settlers displacing the native peoples INFRINGE implies an encroachment clearly violating a right or prerogative. infringing a copyright

And then this

INVADE implies a hostile and injurious entry into the territory or sphere of another. accused of invading their privacy

Hmmmm… “usurpation”, “infringement”, and “encroaching” among other big English words the sorts of which don’t normally form part of the vocabulary of “Asia’s Songbird” have suddenly started appearing on her timeline. Note too the complex and well-constructed sentence structure of the tweets, all in straight English.

Indeed, one wonders who or what is really behind the Twitter handle of Regine Velasquez — one that commands the attention of no less than 2.6 million followers.

The mystery persists.

According to @MrFrankBaraan, HOPE in a better Philippines lies in Filipino CELEBRITIES!

In a recent tweet, social media “influencer” Frank Baraan yet again exhibited the very reason why the Philippines continues to fail to progress…

Agot Isidro
Regine Velasquez
Bianca Gonzales
Enchong Dee
Dingdong Dantes

5 Pinoy celeb entertainers, who aren’t actually afraid to speak their minds, to call out greedy politicians & arrogant public officials, & to criticize & challenge a divisive, bloodthirsty despot.

#Salamat

Conveniently forgetting that popular noontime shows like Eat Bulaga and the now-defunct Wowowee franchise of Willie Revillame served to dumb down generations of Filipinos for decades, it seems Baraan applies that all-too-familiar selective activism in his choice of modern-day Filipino heroes.
