Twitter Execs Verify Aldub As An Authentic Global Phenomenon

ALDEN RICHARDS fans rejoiced when he finally returned to "Eat Bulaga" and had a tearful reunion with Yaya Dub. And AlDub nation fans have more reason to feel triumphant now that no less than the office of Twitter Asia Pacific and the Middle East, Mr. Rishi Jaitly, verified that AlDub ios truly a Global Phenomenon. He says in his official press statement:

“AlDub is a glo­bal phenomenon on Twitter and shows how our platform as the social soundtrack to TV has real­ly connected Filipinos who love a good love story. We can’t wait to see if the live, public AlDub conversation can set global records by uniting their passionate fans, the nation, and the world on Twitter. The power of Twitter in countries like the Philippines to communicate at scale across 7,000 islands is astonishing. Twitter was facilita­ting the virtual conversation between the producers of the AlDub television phenomenon and the growing audience supporting the tandem, as well as fostering sociocivic engagement and changing the world through global phenome­na on Twitter. Your tweets around the world are validating that their storyline is resonating. AlDub’s tweet volumes were in fact authentic.”

All the detractors of the AlDub love team who accuse them of cheating to get theit 26 million plus tweets are now hereby officially humiliated with no less than the Twitter executive himself vouching that all the twits are authentic. Really, this is a clear indication that AlDub truly rules these days.

Congratulations to Alden, Yaya DUb aka Maine Mendoza, Wally Bayola, Jose Manalo, Paolo Ballesteros and Eat Bulaga for the resounding success of the Kalyeserye that has no doubt made history in the annals of Philippine television. But the AlDub fans also have reason to feel sad. Now that Alden is back in "Eat Bulaga: after doing shows in various cities locally and in Japan for GMA Pinoy TV, it will be the turn of Yaya Dub to go missing. We heard she will be focusing on shooting her scenes in her debut movie, "My Bebe Love", which Director Joey Reyes is rushing to meet its deadline as a Metro Manila Filmfest entry.
