MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler, the least-trusted news brand in the Philippines whose CEO Maria Ressa is a convicted criminal, is not taking any chances in order to ”hold the line.”
Since the Internet is its sole platform in spreading its signature lies and propaganda, it is understandable that Rappler is very concerned over the news that Elon Musk is proposing to buy Twitter for $41 Billion., Rappler has no known ties with Twitter, but is one of the designated Facebook fact checkers in the Philippines. Nevertheless, in order to remain competitive on social media, Twitter needs to muster all avenues to keep its presence on people’s radars: TikTok, IG, Pinterest, Linked-In, among others.
Our sources tell us that Maria Ressa is exploring a tie-up with Grindr, the most famous dating site in the LGBT community to which she belongs. She’s also looking at signing up with other dating sites all the over the world including the U.S. and Europe.
Ressa also sent feelers to The Adobo Chronicles (whose Facebook page has been taken down this week) to buy the rights of the satirical site AdoboChronicles.com which has an impressive record of 27 million views, and counting.
Adobo Chronicles, however, outrightly rejected Rappler’s offer.
