In the heat of the moment, let’s check out some funny quotes we found on Twitter
A lot of people worked hard and even risked their lives just for us to get the freedom we deserve. And now this happens.

Isa lang masasabi ko. The country has far more problems than the Internet.

Once cybercrime law is implemented, our tweets will be… “Here at the jail, tweeting with my followers.”

No more fun in the Philippines!

12 years imprisonment or 1 million pesos if found guilty of cybercrime… Parang ewan lang.
Just because one man’s ego and or reputation is bruised, the whole has to make amends for it?

Dear police, this girl tweeted a ‘panget’ photo of her. My eyes got offended. Please jail her. Huhuhu

So, a senator commits plagiarism, can’t handle criticism, then drafts a bill so that people can go to jail for criticizing him?! Wow.

Philippine government, kung mababayaran n’yo ang Internet bill ng mga mamamayan, then we will abide by your stupid law.
People shouldn’t be afraid of their government. The government should be afraid of their people.
They cant solve real crimes, so they went cyber.

We will not be PSYlenced. Oppa Gangnam style!
How can our country improve if the Government keeps implementing stupid laws like this.

If expressing ourselves will be a crime, then send us Filipinos all to jail, but we need Wi-Fi.

With all due respect to the guys who signed this bill, take out the libel part and replace it with those who speak jejemon.
Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

I hope the prison we all go to is the one in Cebu. Good inmates with excellent dancing skills! :)
Starting today: “It’s more prisoners in the Philippines.”
