    “Since this love team started, Twitter has witnessed the rise of AlDub from a local sensation to a global social TV phenomenon that shows the Filipino culture to the world. As a cultural milestone, #ALDUB1stAnniversary is a celebration not just for the couple and their fans, but also for Twitter that has been the home of AlDub Nation all around the world since
    the beginning of their love story,“ said Rishi Jaitly, Twitter’s vice president, Asia Pacific & Middle East.

    The AlDub love team was accidentally discovered at the Juan for All, All for Juan segment of the noon time television show Eat Bulaga where Maine portrayed the character of a housemaid and Alden as himself.

    Due to the strong chemistry between the two main characters, their budding romance caught the attention of the audience and the first ever ‘kalyeserye’ began. Filipinos immediately went to Twitter to express their appreciation for the new TV love couple. Recently, AlDub emoji, the first-ever in Southeast Asia, dominates with 6.6M anniv tweets.

    Well-known local personalities and even foreign celebrities congratulated the love team through their Tweets, including a Tweet from US musician Bryan_White, who sang AlDub’s theme song “God
    Gave Me You.”
