He tweeted, she tweetedBy Dolly Anne Carvajal

A new Twitter war is brewing. This time it’s between Aubrey Miles and Troy Montero on one side and DJ Mo Twister on the other. For some strange reason, tweeps get a kick out of reading celebs’ ballistic postings. It’s like oxygen that keeps Twitterlandia alive and kicking.
Aubrey’s brother-in-law, KC Montero, is currently dating Mo’s ex, Rhian Ramos. Could this have sparked the altercation? KC and Mo used to be the best of friends. Isn’t there an unwritten rule between buddies that one’s ex-gf is off-limits to the other?
Here are Aubrey/ Troy’s and Mo’s sides of the story. He tweeted, she tweeted, we eavesdropped.
“It’s getting kind of tiring but at the same time, I understand how it becomes news because these things are happening on social media.
“First of all, I don’t know why this Troy/Aubrey thing got so angry. It started with me having a somewhat private conversation with a follower of mine regarding some chismis. The tweet I addressed to this follower was to that person and not to the general public.
“Apparently, Aubrey read the message and assumed it was about her. So she started to tweet about me, to all her followers, calling me a coward. After a few of those statements of hers, I then tweeted something she and Troy assumed was about her again and Troy tweeted me. He appeared very displeased at this whole thing, understandably.
“But, like I said, it was Aubrey who first assumed that I was talking about her. Naturally, I would react after [she called me] names. And that’s where we are now.
“I don’t have any war with KC. I am not mad at KC if he decides to date Rhian, whether that is true or not. My disappointment in KC comes from how he disappeared as a friend—one of my closest and dearest friends. I feel betrayed by him. Again, not because of the girl, but because of him.
“He was the one who encouraged me to leave [Rhian]. He even encouraged me to “destroy” Rhian. I have the e-mails wherein he roots me on. He was like a brother to me … Nag-I love you bro pa yun before I left, promising to always be there for me. I believed him. I must be clear, I have never done anything wrong to KC. Never bad-mouthed him before; always defended him. I thought he was going to be a friend … for the rest of my life. We grew up together in this business; for him to just disappear … I expected so much more from him.
“I don’t care what Rhian does with her life. I don’t care if Aubrey thinks I was tweeting about her or not. I cared about KC and Troy. And now we are no longer friends for reasons that will never be known. However ugly it gets from here, it still is a shame that I lost two good friends.”
“I don’t know what Mo’s problem is. One day I woke up and gusto niya ako awayin. I think he saw my tweets to Rhian about an issue na hindi ko naman alam kung ano at sino. Basta nag-comment lang ako innocently na, ‘Sino yon?’ I had no idea … Then Mo started tweeting about me cheating daw on Troy, blah blah blah. Maybe he hates me because I’m related to KC.”
Troy jumps in
“Mo posted a tweet about Aubrey and another guy (he used the word banging) and that we almost split up because of that. Aubrey answered him back to defend herself. Mo answered back calling Aubs a pornstar and a bitch. Call me old-fashioned but I only know one way to answer that. I asked him to say it straight to my face. I’m not trying to match his wit or have a clever Twitter war with him. I’m just protecting my girl.”
