If Senator Sotto tweets and blogs … #sottoblogs #Sotto1stTweet

Senator Sotto hits back at bloggers while he delivered his speech this Tuesday afternoon.

Mula sa blogs, Facebook, at Twitter, ginawa akong sentro ng mga mapanira at malisyosong atake ng iba’t ibang tao, lalo pa ng mga sumusuporta sa RH Bill”

Senate President then “pointed out that there is a need to succinctly define the rules of blogging in the Philippines, a proposal which Sotto quickly backed up.”

“Ngunit wala yatang batas sa ating bansa tungkol diyan (blogs),” “Marahil dahil dito sa ating naranasan … para maliwanagan na ito at magkaroon ng patakaran o reglamento o rules na susundin ng lahat, ay mag-panukala tayo ng batas.”

In a nutshell, Sotto felt he was cyber-bullied.

Perhaps Sotto is just embarrassed and does not really mean to regulate blogging. Most bloggers are now vigilant in case laws will take place to regulate blogging.

Perhaps Sotto is not aware of blogging as a medium of free speech. I then thought “What if he blogs?”.I then threw the question in twitter for suggestions on domain names.

Most of the domain name suggestions (e.g. Sottocopy.com IPlaigarist.com) revolved on the plagiarism or copy and paste issue . The plagiarism is moot and academic because the plagiarized sections have been stricken off the record. Other names were quite funny like @cocoy’s “The ProCopier.com OneBlogUniversity.com Sotto.me i.sotto.am.”

My personal choice is “iSupportRHBillNa.com” because I would really want him to pass the RH Bill.

@mangburns now wonders what would be his first tweet.

I suggested “I AM SORRY”

Here are curated tweets of suggested domain names in case Sotto blogs. Any more suggestions? Use hashtag #sottoblogs #Sotto1stTweet
