#ALDUBMostAwaitedDate record-breaking 12M tweets qualifies for Guinness World Records

12 million tweets for the phenomenal loveteam’s first date

Aldub Nation continues to dominate social media after it broke another world record in the hashtag #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate last Saturday, September 19 with over 12 million tweets.

The phenomenal record was earned  when Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub’s first date episode aired on Eat Bulaga’s Kalye Serye.

However, Aldub Nation continued to express their “kilig” reactions about the Aldub’s first date which led to 12 million mark on Saturday evening.

Early before the show aired, Kalyeserye stars Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza expressed their thanks as well as their disbelief that as early as 3 am, #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate got 1m tweets already and reached more than 2 million on 8 am. Each regular episodes of Aldub’s Kalyeserye reaches an estimated 2 to 3 million tweets and some of the fans are creating song compositions and music videos for the two (see #AlDub song is cute and catchy, but the ending??? Crazy! Must watch! )
