New Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Punzalan Aranal-Sereno, 52, will be top magistrate until 2030, when she will have to step down because she would have reached the mandatory retirement age of 70.
She will be chief justice even after all current members of the Supreme Court would have retired.
Sereno will also be chief justice alongside at least 3 different presidents.
Twitter user and lawyer Francis Acero, amused at the length of time Sereno will be chief justice, used the hashtag #CJpasiSereno to jest about the changes in his life and society before the country gets to see a new chief justice after Sereno.
Other users of the social networking site followed suit, and the hashtag became viral and a top trending topic in the Philippines Friday night.
Here are some of the funny #CJpasiSereno tweets:
