Tweets of the Week: The Twitterati on the MRT and LRT fare hike, "The Grand Bilibid Hotel" + more

Who tweeted what and when.

 

(SPOT.ph) Pinoy tweeters welcomed the Christmas week with a grim announcement: MRT and LRT fares will be increased to around P28 to P30 from the current P15 to P20. To add insult to this injury, the living conditions of drug lords inside the New Bilibid Prison were revealed. Some of these high profile prisoners were living like kings in a five-star hotel. Others anticipated the Christmas in a more optimistic mood while others are still stressed over the holiday rush. (Art by Warren Espejo)

Full text: A music studio, a bath tub, king size beds in bilibid prison. First reaction: how could authorities let this go on for so long, how can we believe in the justice system now?
