Use Facebook and Twitter to Report News to Media and Share Views on Elections 2010

Automation is not the only thing that's new about today's national elections. Via technology and the internet, voters can now do more than just vote --

We can now play as reporters and let the media and all Pinoys the world-over know of election-related problems and incidences happening in our precincts and localities. Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter serve as platforms for information sharing on this crucial moment in Philippine history.

Here are some Facebook and Twitter channels and handles where we could send our reports:

General:

Twitter - #halalan
Twitter - #juanvote
Twitter - #eleksyon
Twitter - #eleksyon2010

ABS-CBN:

Boto Mo, i-Patrol Mo Facebook Fan Page
BotoPatrollers Twitter Page
ABS-CBN Halalan 2010 Official Twitter Page

GMA:

GMA News TV Twitter Page

TP friends, please don't let minor hassles lead to disenfranchisement. Let's all practice our right to vote! Let's all be more patient with the new system. This is the first automated elections in our country so glitches are to be expected.

Stay tuned for updates to the list. If you know of other handles and channels were voters could send in their reports, please leave a comment including links below.

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

    Sa Bataan, KONTI lang ang Milyonaryo't Makapangyarihan. Kasi, sa Elekson (2010)---sa araw na pinaka may-kapangyarihan ang taong bayan, maraming Bataeño ang piniling maging "LIBONARYO" sa isang araw at maging sunudsunuran sa TRAPO at PERA.Many thanks to those who stood firm to vote the right people for them and for the Filipino Nation. KUDOS to the Serbisyong Totoo Force of Kapuso Network, to my fellow TEACHERS, to PPCRV and to the non-biased NGO's and religious groups.Let's protect our VOTES by Closely Observing the Canvassing of the election returns.

  4. malaking bagay din ang nagawa ng facebook at twitter sa pag papatrol ng boto.. pero nasa atin lahat ang susi para sa magandang resulta ng halalan,, kung naging tapat ka sa pagboto mo at hindi pinagbili,, isa kang tunay na may malasakit sa bansa mo..
