Angel Locsin reaches another milestone on social media with 11 million Twitter followers!




Celebrities are not all about fame and money, they also create impact in the lives of people and inspire them with their talent, hard work, humanitarianism, passion, lifestyle, etc.


The things they say and do are magnified but if it were put in a good sense, they have power to help and move the world in a positive way.


This is the very reason why Angel Locsin joined Twitter in 2009.

Her first tweet went:

I'M ON TWITTER NA!  thanks dennis  — Angel Locsin (@143redangel) October 15, 2009

She thanked her friend Dennis Ilagan for getting her to sign up for Twitter.


And as an ambassador and advocate of Philippine Red Cross, she uses this platform to represent and help the organization for their efforts to promote, raise funds and awareness, and save lives through blood donation project and other activities such as relief and rescue operations.


In fact, the 143 in her Twitter username @143redangel is actually the organization’s hotline and the “red” literally means Red Cross.


The number of her followers increased exponentially over time and Angel takes this to her advantage to easily mobilize her good causes.


While most local celebrities simply tell their Twitter followers to “keep safe” amidst catastrophes, Angel uses this medium with direct to the point information and instructions on how people can get help in trying times.


During Ondoy, for instance, Locsin post emergency phone numbers and ways to donate to flood victims through organizations such as Red Cross.


She also believes that through this platform, she can raise social awareness and encourage others to also lend a hand.


Her advocacies she so consistently promotes have made a difference in the community and the efforts she’s putting in are not just mere publicity, but all for the good of humanity and leave and impart the people with that sense of humility and unity to support a particular cause.


Having said that, Angel inspired a great number of Twitter users making her one of the most followed local celebrities on Twitter to date.


Just recently, her record skyrocketed with over 11 million Twitter followers and to celebrate this milestone, Angel shared on all her social media accounts how she passionately believes in the power of education by sending 31 students to school.




“Thank you to all my 5.5M Instagram and 11M Twitter followers for being there since the beginning, through all the challenges and milestones. As promised when we reached 5M on IG, I would like to share with you this simple celebration of helping 31 scholars through schooling. I believe that education is one of the best gifts we can share to others and that empowered individuals can help shape a bright future,” she said.


You are really an inspiration that creates ripples, Angel. This country is a really better place with you in it.
