#TanginaMoBongGo trends on Twitter after senator admits asking NBI to probe social media posts against him

A day after the senator’s revelation, #TanginaMoBongGo was number one on Twitter’s trending list.

Senator Bong Go trended on Twitter after he admitted to asking the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to investigate social media posts critical of him.

“We wrote letters to the NBI requesting them to conduct investigations on certain social media posts that may fall under possible violations of the cybercrime law, particularly libel, and other applicable laws,” Go said on Thursday, July 16.

The NBI obeyed Go’s appeal and sent several subpoenas to people nationwide. One of the recipients was a college student which was confirmed by the NBI Cybercrime Division.

Netizens, through memes, also pointed out how other public servants didn’t even request a probe on their critics in spite of being on the receiving end of heavy criticisms.
