The love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, popularly known as AlDub, was recognized by Twitter executives across Asia and Middle East, calling it a “global phenomenon.”
“Aldub is a global phenomenon on Twitter and shows how our platform as the social soundtrack to TV has really connected Filipinos who love a good love story,” said Twitter Middle East Vice President Rishi Jaitly via Twitter and Talk ‘N Text joint press statement.
“We can’t wait to see if the live, public Aldub conversation can set global records by uniting their passionate fans, the nation, and the world on Twitter,” he added.
On September 26 episode of Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye, official hashtag #ALDubEBforLOVE garnered 26 million tweets, close to current Twitter record holder of 28.4 million global Tweets for Super Bowl XLIX in February 2015.
The statement also said, “the most shared Tweet for #ALDubEBForLove came from Maine herself, and this was viewed nearly 4.8 million times on Twitter.”
Today, Oct. 3, AlDub is expected to sweep social media again, when the phenomenal love team meet at the Eat Bulaga studio with the rest of the cast.
As of 9:52 a.m. October 3, the hashtag #ALDUBmeetsTVJ is already trending on Twitter with 4.52 million tweets.
