#BuhayTwitter, #TwitterCityPH, and #AlDub Are Now Trending Hashtags

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Twitter launched its #TwitterCityPH in the Philippines, the first in the Asia Pacific region, at the Mind Museum located at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig to thank its local community of users, partners and advertisers for their support. The Philippines was one of Twitter’s fastest growing markets in 2015 with millions of Filipinos using Twitter as an essential part of their national, cultural and everyday moments."

Mabuhay to @ralfonsi, @alizaknox, @rsjaitly and @mainedcm who officially opened the very first in Asia #TwitterCityPH, The #BuhayTwitter hashtag was trending during the press conference especially after the many photo ops, selfies, and groupfies that we made at the TwitterCityPH.

I asked almost everyone to shout the iconic Wazzup Pilipinas shout-out on video so I can later create a compilation of my many videos and photos taken at the presscon. Everyone was willing and accommodating because most Filipinos are really basically socially expressive in nature. This is probably the reason how we amazed the world with the AlDub phenomenon that rocked Twitter with a 41 million plus tweets.

Twitter Philippines (@TwitterPH) is the official account of Twitter in the Philippines. They don't have a local office yet in the country but I believe it will be soon the next move of the Twitter team as all of the Twitter peeps namely Aliza Knox, VP Online Sales for APAC and LATAM, Rishi Jaitly, Vice President of Media for Asia Pacific & Middle East and Richard Alfonsi, VP for Global Online Sales, and was joined by a life-sized standee of Maine Mendoza of the global phenomenon AlDub.

When they announced Maine Mendoza was there, I really thought it was true so I stood up from where I was sitting to get a better view for my video coverage. But then the Maine Mendoza standee came in and oh boy, was I laughing out loud at their hilarious prank. These Twitter peeps know what makes us tick!

The #TwitterCityPH is a temporary experiential space that shows Twitter is the live connection to culture and how Filipinos' passions -- faith, sports, TV, food, entertainment, politics -- have been discovered, shared, and enjoyed more with Tweets. Follow the new @TwitterPH account to see the #TwitterCityPH for yourself.

Richard Alfonsi, Twitter’s Vice President of Global Online Sales, said: “As one of the largest social media markets in the world, the Philippines has been an amazing success story for Twitter in 2015. Twitter helps Filipinos of all ages, communities, and backgrounds connect to one another every day, but it also connects the rest of the world to the country's vibrant culture. We appreciate all of the love from Filipinos and we’re launching our first Asian #TwitterCity in the Philippines to show our commitment to our users, partners and advertisers here.”

Rishi Jaitly, Twitter’s Vice President, Media, Asia Pacific and Middle East, said: “2016 will be an exciting year for Twitter in the Philippines and there’s never been a better time for Filipinos to be on Twitter today. From the upcoming #TwitterElection and other news, sports, TV, and entertainment moments in the Philippines this year, you can be sure that Twitter will be the first service people and the media use to see what’s happening in the world, direct from the source and live as it unfolds.”

Every piece of culture in the world happens on Twitter, every second of every day, and a whole lot of Filipino culture will happen on Twitter in 2016 - ranging from entertainment such as Miss Universe’s homecoming trip, to politics with COMELEC for the first-ever #TwitterElection in the Philippines, to basketball such as PBA and theFIBA World Olympic Men’s Qualifying Tournament, and much more.

Twitter will also help brands create a live connection to their customers, to people's passions, and ultimately, to Filipino culture. This kind of connection is possible because of Twitter's influential live audience, premium live reach, and live creative canvas. No other service offers this combination to marketers.
