R.J. on Ovi Historical Tweet


Gamit ang Twitter, bawat segundo, minu-minuto, oras-oras o araw-araw ay nasusubaybayan natin ang mga pangyayari sa buhay ng ating mga kakilalang gumagamit din ng free social-networking at micro-blogging na ito. Ang mga ginagawa, naiisip o nararamdaman ng ating mga 'sinunsundang' kaibigan ay ating nababasa sa pamamagitan ng kanilang mga updates o 'tweets' na binubuo lamang ng 140 anyong titik o characters.

Samantala, ang Historical Tweet naman ay isang uri ng Twitter 'update' na ginagamitan ng mga salitang may halong pagmamalabis, kabalintunaan o komedya kung saan ang mga tanyag na tao at mga kaganapan sa kasaysayan ng mundo ang siyang nagiging tauhan o guest tweeter. Para mas lalong mapaganda at kapana-panabik ang isang historical tweet, madalas ay ginagawa ito sa isang template o larawan.

Ayon sa site na ito, ang mga aklat ay pahamak sa kasaysayan sapagkat ito'y binubuo ng napakaraming mga salitang madalas ay hindi naman ganu'n kahalaga. Kaya sa pamamagitan ng isang historical update, ang mga tauhan at pangyayari sa ating kasaysayan ay susubukan nating unawain sa pamamagitan lamang ng isang daan at apatnapung mga karakter.



Here's the chook-minder's contribution to PEBA, Nokia Ovi, and Twitter's Historical Tweets:


Jose Rizal's Execution
Bagumbayan Field, Manila

December 30, 1896


José Protasio Rizal Mercado y Alonso Realonda Quintos
(June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896) was a Filipino polymath: a poet, writer, artist, intellectual, and educator. He was a nationalist and the pre-eminent advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. Rizal's 1896 court-martial and execution made him a martyr of the Philippine Revolution. He is widely considered the most prominent Filipino and a national hero. Since Philippine Independence, the anniversary of Rizal's death has been commemorated as a national holiday.

The government secretly buried Rizal in Paco Cemetery in Manila, where they placed no identification on his grave. When his sister Narcisa toured all possible gravesites, she found freshly turned earth at the cemetery and civil guards posted at the gate. Assuming this was the most likely spot, as there had never been ground burials before, she made a gift to the caretaker to mark the site, "RPJ", Rizal's initials in reverse.



PEBA
or the Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog Awards is the organization that honors the best and inspiring blogs of Filipino expatriates and Overseas Filipino Workers around the world. This year's theme is Filipinos Abroad: Hope of the Nation, Gift to the World which is 'synonymous' to Jose Rizal's vision- The Youth is the Hope of our Motherland.

The Chook-minder's Quill is, actually, nominated for the award this year.

Thank you very much Nokia Ovi for sponsoring the PEBA 2009 Awards this coming December 26, 2009 (four days before the 113th-year of the Jose Rizal's martyrdom). The event will be held at six in the evening at the UP Diliman- Ang Bahay ng Alumni Convention Hall, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines.

Ovi by Nokia
Your Life. Connected.

I am thinking of editing my PEBA 2009 entry up to the last minute. Hahah! The keynote speaker might change!

That 'small lady with a mole on her left cheek' has been very busy since last month because of the natural calamities in the Philippines, baka hindi raw siya makadadalo sa awards night. Buti nalang in-email ni J. Rizal ang message niya thru Nokia Ovi Mail! o",)

ISLADENEBZ
Thanks! U

Kailan naman po lalabas ang Ovi Historical Tweet ng Isla de Nebz?

Reymos said...

Well done. Actually I was also thinking Rizal will be the best relevant historical tweet for PEBA, especially the monument photo of him at Luneta Park. Unfortunately, I dont have any images taken by myself and due to copyright issue of posting or using images, I decided to use a different historical figure. My understanding that you got also the photo from wikipedia. Good luck!

Uy adik ka rin sa twitter. Ako hindi ko na masyado sini-check. Hindi ko gusto yung flooding message ng sinusubaybayan ko. Nakakasawa siya. Pero I still love to follow others pa rin.

The Pope said...

Wow ang galing mo talaga Doc, you really impressed me with another Doc (Doc JP Rizal).

You're a genius. Hindi ba puedeng si Lady Mole ang ipalit mo muna kay Doc JPR sa picture so he can deliver his usual heroic speech(lolz) hahahaha.

ALONE BUT NOT LONELY
Hindi ako adik sa Twitter, Red. U Nagpapasalamat lang ako sa Nokia Ovi sa sponsorship nito sa PEBA 2009.



THE POPE
Thank you! Kayo naman... (,"o

Nakuha niyo po, kaya RJ on Ovi ang title ko nito kasi binaliktad na Jose Rizal. Tina-try kong i-modify ang entry ko sa PEBA, baka magbago ang guest speaker, hindi na si Lady Mole. Hahah!



PUSANG-GALA
Welcome to the Chook-minder's Quill, Pusa! Kumusta?

abe mulong caracas said...

galing naman ng konek-da-dats ni doc

sana makarating ako! (kahit di ako invited)

before the awarding gagawa ako ng post about peba kahit di ko alam yung mga pasikot sikot nito.

bizjoker-of-the-philippines said...

nakikibasa dok!

Ayus ang Historical Tweet mo kay Doc Rizal...!

So na-identified pala yung grave site niya by honest presumption... pano kaya kung nagkamali si Sis Narcisa? dapat tawagin ang NBI at ipa-examine kung sya ba ang nasa puntod...hehehehe!

Niini said...
