The internet has enabled much of the world to both consume and share at an incredible rate, sometimes completely overwhelming the websites we use. And when it comes to hilarious, scandalous, and downright ridiculous celebrity news, people’s fingers move at a superhuman speed.
The term “breaking the internet” is used when something goes beyond viral, consuming every outlet and platform, almost instantly cementing the person or trend in history. And now Guinness World Records has started taking note!
On December 13, the world record monitor announced that 25-year-old BTS member V—whose real name is Kim Taehyung—broke two social media records for being the fastest person to reach both one and 10 million followers on Instagram. He hit one million in just 43 minutes, and hit 10 million in 4 hours and 52 minutes! Previous holders of the titles include Jennifer Aniston and Rupert Grint, but their numbers are playthings for the famed K-pop band, who all have more than 20 million followers each!
