The Aldub loveteam, consisting of Alden Richards and Maine ‘Yaya Dub’ Mendoza, continues to add feather to their respective caps with yet another achievement for their career. The phenomenal split-screen duo was blessed again with a new and unexpected gift.
According to Manila Bulletin, their personal Twitter accounts have just been verified by Twitter. The said verification tag from the widely-used social media site confirms that their usernames (@aldenrichards02 , @mainedcm) are the genuine ones used by the celebrities. This is symbolized by a checkmark inside a sky-blue flower-like shaped mark beside the username.
The same article mentioned that the account verification of Twitter is provided to public icons and popular celebrities that are highly probable to experience impersonation. This will greatly help stop posers and other users who would plan to misrepresent their names. The Twitter Help Center explained that the profile of the user is stamped by the “official blue verified tick badge.”
In a report from Zeibiz, Jim Ayson revealed that @wincewong and @casedavis who are both from Twitter work together for the account verification procedure. Ayson admitted it generally takes a long time before accounts can be authenticated. Howeve,r in the case of the Aldub tandem, the team behind Twitter made an exception and sped up the procedure. The Twitter Help Center added that “As a general rule, the more high-profile a person or business you are, the more likely you are eligible for verification.”
As of writing, Mendoza has 1.83 M followers and on the other hand, Richards has 1.95 M followers. In addition, the SocialBakers site, which has the statistics for the “fastest-growing profiles in the Philippines,” presented that she has an increase of 21,747 in followers and he has an additional 40,215 followers recently.
The two expressed their happiness for this latest recognition.
Woke up seeing that blue check! #blessed hahahah. Good morning and may God bless everybody today! 🙌🏻
