By this time, you've probably heard or read about the massive earthquake that rocked Batangas and other nearby areas on Tuesday night.

A magnitude 5.5 tremor was felt in parts of Makati, Bulacan (Intensity 4), Mandaluyong, Quezon City, Cavite Manila, Quezon (Intensity 3), Batangas, and Pasig (Intensity 2), according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs).

As of Wednesday afternoon, at least 40 aftershocks reportedly jolted the epicenter in Batangas. Fortunately, Philvocs didn't record any major damage later in the day.

If anything, our major takeaway from this disaster is how technology has drastically changed the way that the public reacts to large-scale crises. In the case of earthquakes, it's not as simple as "duck, cover, and hold," but rather going for one's smartphone for a snarky tweet.

Here are the most common social media posts during and after yesterday's unfortunate episode.
