Guinness World Records acknowledged the feat by tweeting, “Congratulations to @NCTsmtown’s TAEIL MOON who’s set a new record for the fastest time to reach 1M followers on @instagram just one hour and 45 mins! #NCT #NCTU.” According to the official website of the agency, Taeil has set the Guinness World Record for the ‘fastest time to reach 1 million Instagram followers.’ In just one hour and 45 minutes after posting his first tweet, Taeil had a million followers.
His Instagram account now has 1.8 million followers less than a week after it was launched. He has only five posts on the photo-sharing platform so far, and follows just seven individuals, all of whom are members of the NCT band.
In a statement, Taeil expressed his gratitude to his supporters, saying, “Thank you to all the fans! I was so surprised when I heard the news! I never imagined myself becoming a Guinness World Records title holder, and am truly grateful for all the love and support. I would not be here without my members and our NCTzens. I’ll try my best to connect and communicate even more through socials. I love you all!”
Grint, who debuted his Instagram account by announcing the birth of his daughter in November 2020, had surpassed the million-followers mark in four hours and one minute. Aniston was one of the previous record-holders after garnering the same amount of followers in five hours and sixteen minutes with her first Instagram post with her Friend’s castmates.
