Topacio tweets: ‘Festive mood’ inside Veterans
'CGMA officially released. Everyone singing 'Please release me, let me go...'' reads one of Topacio's tweets

MANILA, Philippines – On the day former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was released on bail, one of her lawyers took to Twitter to give the world a blow-by-blow account of what was happening inside the the Veterans Medical Memorial Center (VMMC). 

Controversial lawyer Ferdinand Topacio, who was inside VMMC with the rest of the former president’s team, gave the Twitterverse a unique–and for some, lighter–take on Arroyo’s bail. 

Here’s what the spirited lawyer tweeted on Wednesday, as of posting: 

#ArroyoBail according to Topacio

The controversial lawyers was up early on Wednesday, starting the day with a customary “good morning” tweet.

One of his first tweets was a reaction to a TwitPic posted by Rappler’s Paterno Esmaquel:
