Guinness World Records (GWR) marked Hashtag Day on August 23 by naming the all-time world record set by the Philippines’ phenomenal love team, AlDub.

The AlDub hashtag broke Twitter records, including that of the 2014 FIFA World Cup semi-final match between Germany and Brazil, with 40,706,392 uses from 24 October – 25 October 2015.
The hashtag #AlDubEBTamangPanahon was used on Twitter for the benefit concert of Eat Bulaga’s AlDub team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.
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 love team of actor-singer Richards and Mendoza – Dub Smash’s Yaya Dub – became popular on the “Kalyeserye” skits of noontime show Eat Bulaga.
The Guinness declaration also marks the 3rd year anniversary of the #AlDubEBTamangPanahon concert.
