MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She had hoped to lift 5 million pesos to fund the operations of Rappler, but with just days left, CEO Maria Ressa is very unhappy that only 13% of her idea has been achieved. That’s hardly adequate to fund an online news company.
So, Ressa is throwing in the towel, and is shutting down Rappler for good as of Dec 31.
Instead, Ressa is edition her very own personal journal The Tweeted Times.
She done the proclamation currently on her Twitter page.
