How Meralco got its Twitter name back


Thanks, slakker9.blogspot.com, geekandpoke.typepad.com.

Two famous typhoons of 2009 — Ondoy and Pepeng — forced the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) to use Twitter.
Problem was, the Twitter handle @meralco, was already taken.
And someone else on the platform — @manilaelectric — was tweeting information different from the official version.
Here’s the link to what now appears to be the first in a series of Twitter-related stories I plan to write for GMANews.TV, the website that employs me.
