Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s wife, Ho Ching, appears to have taken an interest in either Robert Pattinson and Batman or how the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is shaping up, if her social media posts are anything to go by.
On Friday, Mdm Ho shared two news articles on her personal Facebook page from two different sources – the Daily Mail and Men’s Health – covering the news about how Twilight-fame Robert Pattinson has been chosen to succeed Ben Affleck as Batman.
Both of the posts were published within minutes of each other:
Mdm Ho’s posts could be indicative of her interest in Robert Pattinson, Batman and the DCEU – or she could simply be keeping up with entertainment news and sharing such news on her social media page for the benefit of her followers.
The PM’s wife has a reputation for sharing a variety of links on topics such as science, health, entertainment, lifestyle, arts and socio-political issues. A look at her Facebook page shows that she seems to share links non-stop, daily, linking dozens of articles nearly every hour. Most of these Facebook posts do not include a caption.
Many have commented that Mdm Ho’s high-frequency social networking patterns are strange, especially for someone who also serves as chief executive of Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, Temasek.
Her seemingly constant presence on Facebook, despite her high profile job, has led some to wonder whether she uses a bot, a media manager or whether she really is a social media addict.
