A week after setting Twitter's records on fire—12.1 million tweets using the hashtag #AlDubMostAwaitedDate—Eat Bulaga's colossal kalyeserye effortlessly shattered its personal record with an unbelievable 25.6 million tweets, with #AlDubEBforLove utterly dominating Saturday's (nonexistent) noontime show showdown.
But more importantly, the episode rendered fans of Maine Mendoza (Yaya Dub) and Alden Richards' hit pairing perhaps the most kilig they've ever been. We mean, were you able to control yourself during that "glass of water" sequence? Weren't you intrigued by what's written on Maine's letter?
Relive the episode here:
With the #AlDub hashtags simply dominating local trends day in and day out, it wouldn't be surprising if the tandem's burgeoning fanbase suddenly decides to go for international social media records, such as...
THE FASTEST TIME TO REACH ONE MILLION FOLLOWERS
In the case of #AlDub, what if the love team decides to put up its official Twitter handle, aside from its throng of fan accounts? It would be fairly possible to hit the one million mark within the duration of that day's kalyeserye segment (approximately 30 to 45 minutes).

But if we're talking about most re-tweeted messages, an actual exchange of "I love yous" (and not just "AlDub you") between Alden and Maine, who have have yet to converse or even tag one another on social media, could prove to be more monumental than a star-studded selfie.
In the future though, it's not impossible for the actual number of #AlDub Nation members to scale those heights, especially now that the sensational pairing is starting to create buzz on a global scale.

MOST TWEETS PER SECOND
On August 3, 2013, Twitter experienced a huge spike in tweets per second—143,199 in a one-second peak to be exact. This happened during the rebroadcasting of Hayao Miyazaki's Castle In The Sky,which also tallied a whopping 25,088 tweets-per-second record in a televised broadcast in 2011.
#AlDub already had their first date (#AldubMostAwaitedDate), followed by their first formal courting day (#AlDubEBforLove). What do you think will transpire when their first real kiss finally happens? Will we see international Twitter records being broken?
Only time (and, perhaps, Lola Nidora) will tell...
