Ethel Booba made the world a much better place the moment she decided to spread humor to the online world.
From the stage to the screen, the comedienne expanded to drawing laughs through her Twitter page. And she talks about everything there, from politics down to memes, with each tweet always funnier than the last. Which makes some people wonder, is she really the one behind them all?
Last night, March 5, just a day after her trending “Gandang Gabi Vice” stint with Rufa Mae Quinto, Ethel finally addressed the speculations and maintained that no one else does the thinking for her, but revealed that she gets some help from people around her.
Answering if she has a “ghost tweeter,” she said, “Buhay pa sila hindi sila ghost. Umamin? Sa memes and edited pics, may friend ako taga-edit. Sa English post, minsan pinaco-correct ko sa kaibigan. Sa opinyon, nagbabasa-basa muna ako. Wala akong staff kasi wala akong pambayad.”
She admitted that she has someone checking her grammar and wasn’t ashamed to say that she still gets confused about some rules.
“Siyempre ‘yung iba dyan na English may nag-correct na or translate na. Minsan nga natatanga pa din ako sa paggamit ng ON, IN, and AT,” she explained on Twitter.
Ethen added, “To be honest, ako nag-iisip. Then save ko sa draft, then minsan bago ko tweet pa-check ko sa kapamilya or kaibigan kung tama ba term gamit ko. Pinayuhan na din kasi ako na ‘di na pwede gaya noon, na basta-basta na lang tweet dapat ginagamitan na ng isip.”
Her mom and sister Boobita sometimes play a part in the process as well. “Minsan may eksena pa ‘yan sa bahay, mga nakatutok sila sa cellphone sina Mamang saka kapatid ko sunod sabihin ‘Thel, may nag-tweet ganito. Sagot mo.’ Sila talaga ‘yung excited, gawin ko nga patayin ko wifi. Charot!”
