Everyone’s favourite Straits Times (ST) social media guy turns out to not be one guy. They’re also not interns. Mind blown!

The weatherman, responsible for hilarious tweets like the below, is apparently made up of multiple people from the ST online team, according to a statement from ST themselves. At least this means we don’t need to worry about the guy being fired.

Which explains why ST’s Facebook had also started posting some incredible captions.

Following the weather jokes on Twitter, these captions definitely attracted more attention than they normally would. Furious discussions in the comments suggest some division among readers, with one camp arguing that such jokes detract from the respectability of a national newspaper, and the other camp enjoying the quips.

Generally, though, the public seem to love the humour.

When the twitter posts died down for a while, people started replying and asking for the humour to return. As of today, it seems ST has realized how popular that was, and returned to the funny tweets.

Kudos to the ST social media team. You guys are rays of sunshine when the skies are grey and raining.

According to a statement from ST, they will be injecting humour whenever they can, corresponding to the gravitas of the situation or news. I guess this means we can all expect more awesome weather updates from them.
