Twitter may have been the site of many a word war among celebrities, but that is not the case for Cristine Reyes and Derek Ramsay. Apparently, the social microblogging site has actually brought the two stars closer.
A recent report on “Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN)” attests to the two having developed a “unique friendship” while filming their still-untitled Star Cinema film with Anne Curtis. Their rapport had apparently stemmed from Derek’s interest in the intricacies of the popular site.
“Mayroon lang siyang (Derek) questions about Twitter, pero ‘yon lang,” Cristine was quoted as saying by “SNN.”
Derek is a Twitter newbie who hopped on the bandwagon only last June 8. But has already been active on the site, tirelessly answering random comments and greetings from his more than 48,000 followers.
Asked by a fan what prompted him to join Twitter, Derek tweeted back, “Angel got me into it,” pertaining to his long-time girlfriend, Angelica Panganiban.
Cristine, on the other hand, is quite the “experienced” celebrity Twitter users, having been using the site since 2009. Her Twitter page also became a magnet for controversy a few times with her often-blunt tweets about her personal and professional life.
Derek was originally tapped to be Cristine’s leading man for her forthcoming ABS-CBN drama series, “Reputasyon.” However, due to a conflict in scheduling, Derek was officially replaced by Cristine’s real-life sweetheart, Rayver Cruz.
The upcoming movie of Cristine, Anne and Derek will reportedly center on “forbidden love” and will require the three stars to do intimate scenes. In spite of this, Angelica has nothing to worry about, as Derek himself said in an earlier tabloid report,”It’s just work.”
