Yesterday marked the 10th year anniversary of Jack Dorsey’s launching of the micro-blogging site, Twitter!
Obviously, Twitter has helped businesses and influencers flourish through this genius social media platform.
To commemorate their anniversary, the Guinness World Records came up with five (5) most significant world achievements set by its users.

As stated in their article, over 350,000 tweets are now sent worldwide per minute, which is equivalent to 500 million tweets per day and around 200 billion tweets per year. Phew, that’s a lot!
Meanwhile, among the five record-breaking tweets in Twitter history is the hashtag used by the AlDub nation: #AlDubEBTamangPanahon.
The hashtag (AlDubEBTamangPanahon) was identified as the most used hashtag in 24 hours by the Guinness World Records.
Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza or popularly known as #AlDub of Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye have proven so many times that they indeed ruled the nation.
This sensational love team has garnered 40,706,392 tweets from 24 October 2015 – 25 October 2015. They surpassed Super Bowl’s 24.9 million and Ellen DeGeneres’ historical “selfie” pic during the Oscars last year. Although, her selfie with Bradley Cooper and the rest of the A-listers won’t be forgotten.
Truly, #AlDub is remarkable and going to stay on the surface for a while.
Admittedly, with all these national issues happening in our country, watching these two lovely people make me forget, even for a short moment, my stress in life.
Congratulations, Alden, Maine, and the rest of the #AlDub nation!
