AlDub, the love team of actors Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza, is the popular pair on “Kalyeserye,” a segment produced by long-running noontime show “Eat Bulaga.”

#ALDubEBForLove was the official hashtag of Kalyeserye’s Sept. 26 episode which highlighted the much-awaited visit of Alden to see Yaya Dub at her grandmothers’ (lolas) mansion.

The hashtag was first tweeted at 10:34 p.m. on Sept. 25 and reached its peak at 1:26 p.m. the next day with 43,000 tweets per minute during the airing of the episode, according to a release by cellular network Talk ’N Text for its unlimited Twitter promo.

AlDub’s record is just two million short of Super Bowl’s Twitter record which hit 28.4 million tweets on Feb. 1.

“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 Rishi Jaitly, vice president of Media, Asia Pacific and Middle East, Twitter. “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.”

On Saturday, the AlDub story is expected to reach a new milestone as Maine heads to the “Eat Bulaga” studios to visit Alden. RC
