The noon-time show Eat Bulaga’s “Tamang Panahon” charity concert goes into Philippine television’s history books, smashing world Twitter records.
The “Aldub Nation’s” 140-character stream of consciousness created more than 39 million tweets as of midnight with the hashtag #ALDubEBTamangPanahon, surpassing the 35.6 million registered during the 2014 FIFA World Cup semi-final match between Germany and Brazil.
It also surpassed American Football’s Superbowl record of 28.4 million global tweets – in February 2015.
The phenomenal “Kalyeserye” love team Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza, popularly known as Aldub, enchanted their millions of fans again during their fourth meeting at the 55,000-seater Philippine Arena.
The laughter and excitement inside the world’s largest indoor arena was at fever pitch, courtesy of the couple’s grandmothers, Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola), Tinidora (Jose Manalo) and Tidora (Paolo Ballesteros).
The hosts of the longest-running noon-time show in the Philippines, including Vic Sotto, Sen. Tito Sotto and Joey De Leon, also did their part of bringing unending happiness to the event.
The Eat Bulaga concert was able to raise P14 million to be spent on library projects in three pre-selected beneficiary schools, each in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The latest Twitter figure the show holds is up by more than 13 million tweets from its previous all-time high record of 26 million for the #ALDubEBforLOVE during the September 26 episode.
It surpassed the netizens’ initial 36 million target that signifies the show’s 36 years on air.
