“If you want to be updated with the news then look for a politically unbiased news website. Seeing as you have internet access, the world is just a click away.”

“It could be. It’s faster because you only need to compose 140 characters, very useful to disseminate first hand info. On the other hand, there are fake accounts that compromise the reliability of information.”
Rea Samantha Migullas, Silliman University Alumna

“It’s a useful tool for fast paced dissemination of info. Downside to this is that it really isn’t in-depth due to the 240 character constraint. However, coupled with a link for verification on the said info, it has a good reach. This platform works exceptionally good especially as students from younger generations have started weaning away from Facebook.”
John Rey Lee Villareal, Silliman University Alumnus
