Leticia didn't know you can wave to ppl on twitter *waves!* PAP says they are making waves on Twitter

The PAP Twitter account @PAPSingapore sent out this tweet today: "Please like our official Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pap.sg…" So @patlaw asked : "but why?????" And @PAPSingapore replied : "…so you can see the latest photos of Tin Pei Ling, and to help us have more outreach" The rest of the Singapore Twitter crowd found this reply so bizarre that they retweeted it. Some people asked me privately if the PAP Twitter account was actually a parody one, or if it had been hacked (Nope, looks like the real thing). Then on PAP's Facebook page, this self-congratulatory message appeared : "PAP Twitter account @PAPSingapore continues to make waves in the SingaporeTwitter sphere... contiuously [sic] getting re-tweeted" If that isn't a *facepalm* series of events, I do not know what is.
