Vilma Santos disowns Twitter account peddling fake news
How did the confusion over her vote on the Commission on Human Rights’ budget begin? Blame it on the fake Twitter account.
Batangas Rep. Vilma Santos Recto has publicly disowned a Twitter account opened in her name, which posted several messages that she was in favor of the CHR budget cut.
The Twitter account, @vilmaSRecto, has more than 5,500 followers to date. The account, opened in March 2012, has posted around 1,500 messages.
“My mom has clarified that she is not using this account nor anyone from her team,” actor Luis Manzano tweeted, with a screenshot of the fake account.
