“Sorry po if napadaan kami sa account ni yayadub, ibabalik din namin to sa tunay na may-ari.. Nagmamahal, Anonymous Philippines,” read a tweet posted by a supposed member of the group on Mendoza’s account.

(We are sorry if we dropped by the account of yayadub. We will return this account to its rightful owner. Love, Anonymous Philippines.)

Four tweets from the group have been posted on Mendoza’s account, inviting people to its “Million Mask March.” The tweets are still posted on her account as of 8:30 a.m. on the same day.

The meteoric rise of Mendoza due to the surging popularity of the AlDub love team made her Twitter account the third fastest-growing celebrity profile for September, according to Twitter monitoring site socialbakers.com.

Currently, Mendoza has 2.4 million followers on Twitter.

Anonymous Philippines has been hacking government websites to push its various demands. Recently, it defaced the website of the National Telecommunications Commission to support the Filipinos’ fight for faster and better Internet service. AJH/RAM
