If you?re still not on board with the couple craze of Alden Richards and Maine ?Yaya Dub? Mendoza, then it?s just a matter of time before you stumble your way into it. The sensational love team of Alden and Yaya Dub, popularly known as AlDub, knows no boundaries as they keep on breaking records every chance they get ? specially on social media.

2nd Most Viral Hashtag In The World

It had been previously reported that during their big event, dubbed as ?Sa Tamang Panahon,? at the world?s largest indoor stadium, the Philippine Arena, they tallied over 39.5 million tweets with the hashtag #ALDUBEBTamangPanahon to become the most tweeted hashtag all over the world.

But figures from Twitter Asia Pacific corrected the final count and revealed the total number to be more than the previous reported number of tweets. Thanks to the AlDub nation tweeting during the big event and supportive fans from all over the world, the phenomenal couple gained recorded an amazing 41 million tweets on October 24! Even without the final total, they have already beaten the reigning #2 most tweeted hashtag before that — the FIFA World Cup semi-final match between Brazil and Germany which tallied 35.6 million tweets. The most tweeted hashtag was set by boy group 5SoS, at 78 million tweets.

?The AlDub phenomenon continues to make history with a new global Twitter record by taking a love story that?s captured the imagination of people all over the world and combining it with the Tamang Panahon charity concert broadcasted live worldwide,? Twitter?s Vice President of Media, Asia Pacific and Middle East Rishi Jaitly said in a statement, according to Inquirer.net.

?We are delighted that Twitter continues to be a way for millions of Filipinos to keep up with the latest updates from news, culture and the world and share the experience with other from across the country.?

The AlDub sensation clearly still has a long way to go. And it would be no surprise to anyone if the social media power of the couple will take them to even greater heights in the future.
