MANILA, Philippines — Opposition Sen. Leila de Lima wants the Senate to investigate the reported sale of text blast machines on Facebook Marketplace and other e-commerce companies which she warned are being used for partisan political activities.


Last October 6, mobile users received text messages cheering on former Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. who had just filed his candidacy for president in the 2022 elections.


The National Telecommunication Commission later ordered Facebook, Lazada and Shopee to immediately stop selling text blast machines.
