MANILA, Philippines – It’s been two years since the AlDub love team took over Filipino fans’ hearts, and as it turns out, the pair is still as phenomenal as ever. According to Twitter Philippines’ year-end rankings, AlDub – made up of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza – is the most tweeted love team of 2017.

This year saw the pair make their primetime TV debut in their teleserye, Destined to Be Yours, which aired from February to May. The onscreen couple also began to venture into their own products, with Alden performing in his first solo concert, and Maine launching her book and debuting on the Bench runway sans partner.
Maine – who recently went viral for penning a brutally honest open letter to her fans about her showbiz journey – is also the sole Filipino on Twitter’s list of most tweeted celebs in the world.
