Junjun Binay says many can be paid in Facebook, Twitter to ‘troll’

UPDATED – On today’s ABS-CBN News Channel’s (ANC) program Headstart, suspended Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin “Junjun” Binay said many can be paid in social media to make negative posts, comments and ‘memes’.

The suspended mayor said he does not believe that social media represents majority of the Filipino people.

Binay’s statement came after he was asked if his family is ‘manhid’ from criticisms made by Filipino users in social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter).

“Bakit social media ang magiging batayan? Gaano kadami ang nasa social media? Hindi tama yan. Ang dami-daming puwedeng bayaran para maging ‘trolls’,” the suspended mayor said.

“It cannot reflect the true sentiment of the people,” he added.
