MANILA, Philippines – On October 3, Twitter Asia Pacific and Middle East Vice President Rishi Jaitly called the Philippine tandem AlDub a “global phenomenon.”

Also known as a Kalyeserye, the tandem pulled in a record 26 million tweets on September 26 through the hashtag #AlDubEBforLOVE. This is just a couple of million short of a record 28.4 million global tweets for Super Bowl XLIX back in February 2015.

How did Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza’s tandem reach that record?
