(SPOT.ph) Well, we can all agree that was really long. President Rodrigo Duterte has delivered his final State of the Nation Address—"but not my last swan song," he says—and it took around three hours, arguably one of the longest SONA in recent history. To compare, the record he broke was the final address of the late Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino's in 2015 which clocked in two hours and 15 minutes, according to Rappler's Pia Ranada

And Duterte sure made use of the three hours. For his last SONA, we had all the usual suspects: the "war on drugs," a shout-out for Bong Go, telling folks to "shoot [insert random group of villains here] dead," sexist "jokes." and more. If you're not interested in hearing all that, we recap the event in tweets! Is this a reliable method worth making your final judgments on? Heck no. Is it far more entertaining and less taxing on your brain cells? Yup.
