Filipino actress Maine Mendoza is the most tweeted about celebrity, according to Twitter Philippines’ 2018 year-end figures.
It’s almost expected, given how eventful the year has been for Ms Mendoza. Apart from releasing her lipstick collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, 2018 saw her launch a few projects including a new TV show ‘Daddy’s Girl in the City’, which is a huge hit. This month, she also has a movie premiered at the Metro Manila Film Fest.
Her social media presence is massive. The 23-year-old star is the Philippines' most Googled female personality and is known as the Social Media Queen and The Phenomenal Star. But she’s had problems from trolls. After a series of tweets telling fans to stop hateful messages, Mendoza deactivated her Twitter account in June 2017, although, her other social media accounts were still active. Three months later she was back on Twitter.
Model, singer and actress Maymay Entrata took the second spot on the most tweeted Filipino. She also had a remarkable year, making history as the first Filipina to walk at Arab Fashion Week.
Singer and presenter Vice Ganda remains the most followed Filipino celebrity with over 11.5 million followers, followed by Anne Curtis-Smith, Angel Locsin, Kathryn Bernardo and Yeng Constantino.
