MANILA - The Commission on Elections will soon re-aunch its twitter account with @comelec.

Comelec Spokesman James Jimenez said their existing account @comelectv will become @comelec after the poll body recovered the original account from another user.

By next week, the Comelec will be accepting reports on illegal campaign materials on this account.

Jimenez said social media is a very empowering tool for  election management bodies by making the  public partners in reporting violations.
