MANILA, Philippines—The Office of the Ombudsman denied Friday that it has an account in the popular social networking sites Twitter and Facebook.

The account of a certain “Ombudsman Morales,” @OmbudsmanPh, bearing a picture of Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales appeared in Twitter a few days ago.

The account has been actively posting tweets and replies to Twitter users. It has attracted 84 “followers” as of Friday.

As of 2:20 p.m. Friday, the account had sent 163 tweets.

“Thank You for The Trust and Support with the Office of The Ombudsman in Unrelenting pursuit of Good Governance #ManindiganKontraKatiwalia,” says one of the messages.

But the Ombudsman’s public information office said it does not have yet an official Facebook or Twitter account.
