On this day, in 2014, Cristiano Ronaldo smashed a Guinness World Record. He became the athlete with the most Twitter followers, surpassing 25 million members.

Ronaldo first joined that social media platform in June 2010, roughly one year after ex-Real Madrid team mate Kaka decided to open a Twitter account. Today, the Orlando City-based Brazilian superstar counts 25.7M twitter fans.

Meanwhile, exactly two years after achieving that Guinness World Record, Cristiano Ronaldo has almost doubled his feat! He gathers an army of 46.1 million Twitter followers and counting.

This is Triple A, the founder of CRD. "Triple A" being my nickname because my full name is Angela Akua Asante. From time to time, I wear the gloves of the writers on the team and I activate my fingers on my keyboard to publish stories. Power to this growing community of Cristiano Ronaldo fans. To me, football wouldn't make sense without the existence of CR7!
