AlDub Fans Breaks New Twitter Record with 25.6 Million Tweets
AlDub fans have generated 25.6 million tweets on Saturday, September 26. Read on for more details.
AlDub Nation has surpassed their Twitter record set two weeks ago. The hashtag #AlDubEBForLove got a total of 25,652,800 tweets from 12AM to 11PM on Saturday.
According to GMA News Online, the said hashtag broke the 12.1 million record tweet for #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate as early as 11 AM. That happened before Eat Bulaga’s actual airing. Fans’ tweets peaked from 1:00PM to 2:00PM with over 2.5 million tweets per hour.
During Saturday’s “Kalyeserye” episode, Alden cried while singing his version of Bryan White’s “God Gave Me You,” which he dedicated to his leading lady “Meng,” Yaya Dub’s nickname. He also visited Yaya Dub at Lola Nidora’s mansion and they sat closer together unlike in their first date, but Alden was not allowed to touch Yaya Dub. They also had a chance to have their first picture together. In the picture, Alden was almost embracing Yaya Dub but he still cautiously followed Lola Nidora’s “no touch” order.
Before Alden left the mansion, Yaya Dub handed a letter to him. Alden posted the letter’s cover on his Instagram page.
The caption says: “Upon reading this letter, mas nakilala kita. You’re a beautiful person inside and out Meng. Maraming salamat sa message mo. TULOY ANG FOREVER!!!”
Alden thanked Yaya Dub for her message and said that he was able to know her better through the letter. He also said that she is a beautiful person inside and out.
He also posted their first picture together.
“It’s Showtime,” Eat Bulaga’s rival, reached No. 2 on Twitter trends with the hashtag #ShowtimeKapamilyaDay. The Twitter war of the two shows started at 12:01AM on Saturday, but Aldub Nation won because It’s Showtime only managed to gather around 6.7 million tweets.
According to The Summit Express, netizens were asking if “Kalyeserye” will make it to the Guinness World records as the most popular hashtag on Twitter. However, AlDub needs to beat the 32.1 million tweets set for #WorldCupFinal and the 78.1 million tweets set for #vote5sos.
