AlDub, Eat Bulaga reach 10M Twitter goal for #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate
It’s official. The #AlDub craze has again posted a new Twitter record and in the process reached Eat Bulaga’s goal of 10 million tweets.
Days before the “most awaited date” of the trending love team of actor Alden Richards and online sensation Maine Mendoza, known as Yaya Dub, supporters were already gunning for the top spot on Twitter.
By Saturday noon, the tweets have reached 5 million.
During the show, television host Joey de Leon called on fans of Eat Bulaga and its hit segment “Kalyeserye” to help break the show’s previous Twitter records by tweeting #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate.
By 3:36 p.m. it surpassed the 10 million mark.
Eat Bulaga’s rival show’s hashtag was trailing behind, unable to muster a million tweets.
Certain milestones in the star-crossed lovers’ story have helped the show break social media records.
In August, the hashtag #AlDubMaiDenHeaven recorded more than 3.5 million tweets, surpassing that of the #PapalVisit of Pope Francis in January.
The split-screen love team smashed its own record when #ALDUBTheAbduction trended last week with 6.35 million tweets. KS/CDG
