ABS-CBN Anchors and Reporters Have More Followers on Twitter

More people surfing the Internet around the world are following tweets of ABS-CBN multimedia journalists and anchors in the famous social networking site Twitter.


Based from the list made by the New Media Philippines blogsite, nine out of the ten most followed TV news personalities in the country are from the Kapamilya Network.

According to the blog’s report last month, Karen Davila topped the list with 130,168 followers. She was followed by Kim Atienza (124,955), Julius Babao (86,051), Ces Drilon (69,063), Ginger Conejero (51,356), Gretchen Fullido (51,354), Atom Araullo (47,491), TJ Manotoc (47,311), and Pinky Webb (38,594). The list didn’t include journalists from print and online media.

The use of new media by ABS-CBN’s anchors and reporters has made them multimedia journalists who not only report news on-cam but also online via www.abs-cbnNEWS.com, and social networking and microblogging sites such as the widely used Twitter.

ABS-CBN News pioneered and pushed to mobilize new media and technology to reach more Pinoys around the globe. ABS-CBN was the first network to use the high-tech augmented reality technology in a newscast during the Halalan 2010 coverage and until now it continues to use such advanced mechanism in reporting news in “TV Patrol” and “Bandila.”

In 2010, a Pulse Asia nationwide survey showed that ABS-CBN is the most credible TV network in the country with 72% Filipinos saying ABS-CBN gave the most credible TV news coverage of the May 2010 elections. ABS-CBN scored higher than GMA, which had only 63% believing in its credibility, and TV 5 with only 32%.

ABS-CBN News also capped 2010 on a high note with its primetime newscast “TV Patrol” emerging as the number one news program for 2010 with an average rating of 31.2%, according to data from Kantar Media.

Keep tuning in to ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs programs daily on ABS-CBN and continue to follow its news anchors and reporters on Twitter.

    “News programs should be watched for the content and credibility of its news, not the looks and ‘sex appeal’ of its presenters, ” Kara tweeted in the afternoon of Nov. 7. A minute later, she added, “Bato- bato sa langit tamaan huwag magalit. ” Many could not believe that David, who is a recent recipient of the TOWNS (The Outstanding Women in Nation ’s Service) award, and the second of only two Filipinas to have received the prestigious Peabody Award, could post such comments, as seen on Twitter and local forum Pinoyexchange. Some branded her tweets “cheap,” her sentiments “bitter ” or “threatened. ” “I respect Kara David being a Peobody awardee, until this afternoon in twitter, ” said one. “4 sum1 wrking n d media & being d daughter of randy david, i expected u to have at least phrased ur statemnt or chose better words, ” wrote another. “wag sayangin ang mga parangal sa mga opinyong dulot ng inggit ok? Inyong inyo ang kredibilidad nyo walang umaagaw !” posted another Twitter user. Numerous netizens also supposed that she was referring to ABS-CBN ’s “TV Patrol, ” the rival show of GMA-7 ’s “24 Oras.” Some noticed how David ’s tweet appeared to coincide with the changes in the lineup of “Patrol ” with the return of Korina Sanchez and Noli De Castro

  33. pagpasensyahan nyo na ang mga kapupu h

    on the program. One user tweeted David, saying, “that ’s why we watch tv patrol.. it is more credible..” To which David responded: “I respect your opinion. Pero mas maraming intl and local awards ang 24oras. I think that speaks a lot. ” “u love 24ORAS AND that’s perfectly fine. no question with that. but saying negatives about the other speaks so much about YOU, ” posted another user. While there were those who speculated that David ’s tweets were about their industry rivals, others cautioned her to watch her words because it could offend her very own colleagues in GMA. “I think @karadavid is insulting her colleagues too bad for them !” exclaimed one. Another wondered: “how will you explain this to mel [tiangco] and mike [enriquez]? (anchors of ’24 Oras’) na wala kasi silang ‘sex appeal’?” Based on some of the posts of Twitter users and forum members, Kara deleted her tweets shortly. But her posts were saved for posterity through screenshots of her Twitter page posted on Pinoyexchange.com. Some, including her GMA News and Public Affairs colleague Tinna Panganiban- Perez, also re-tweeted her post

  35. braveheart // January 11, 2011 at 8:34 pm //
