MANILA – Eat Bulaga’s popular loveteam, AlDub, broke another record as its #AlDubMostAwaitedDate became trending in Twitter, amassing 12 million tweets in one day.
The #AlDubMostAwaitedDate was the hashtag for on-screen couple Alden Richards and Yaya Dub or Maine Mendoza’s first date in Eat Bulaga’s ‘kalyeserye’ segment over the weekend.
Just last week, #AlDubTheAbduction garnered 6.37 million tweets.
Overwhelmed with their supporters, Alden and Yaya Dub thanked them in their respective Twitter accounts.
Alden was the first to tweet. It read,‘10M tweets! #AlDubnation kayo na! Maraming-maraming salamat talaga sa inyo woohoo!’ (10M tweets! #AlDubnation you already! Thank you very much to all of you woohoo!)

Yaya Dub tweeted shortly after. It read, ‘Pero guys… 10M tweets?! Seriously?!?! Date palang yan ha, pano na sa tamang panahon?!?! Congrats sa ating lahat! (But guys… 10M tweets?! Seriously?!?! That’s just a date, how much more when in the right time?!?! Congratulations to all of us!)

Tweets on #AlDubMostAwaitedDate reached 1 million by 1 a.m., 3 million by 8 a.m., 5 million by 11 a.m. and peaked when Eat Bulaga started airing by noon.
But although AlDub finally had their first date, it was cut short as Yaya Dub needed to leave early and give Lola Nidora her medicines.
