If Twitter Chose our Senators for 2013 (as of August 21, 2012)

So sad to hear about Jesse Robredo. Sadder that everyone knows he was the best of the bunch. I wonder how they feel that everyone says it. We need more like him.


Seeing all the tweets from different Senatoriables, it made me think… if the elections were decided based on Twitter followers, who would win? This is based on who we think are running, and who has Twitter (maybe I haven’t found their account yet).

We all know that as the deadline for filing of Candidacies approaches, this landscape will change. So we will update this as often as…. I remember to do it.

No Twitter: Barbers, Cayetano, Garcia, Honasan, Lim, Maceda, J Magsaysay and Trillanes.

And the winners are:

1. Chiz Escudero @saychiz: 75,321

2. Risa Hontiveros @risahontiveros: 37,317

3. Ruffy Biazon @ruffybiazon: 21,488
