#AldenPautang Trends After Alden Richards Shows Off New Gaming Rig

Alden Richards recently took to Twitter to share his newly built gaming/streaming PC. The hashtag #AldenPautang then went trending.

The reason for the trending hashtag is because Alden’s gaming rig is worth a lot of money. And people from the twitterverse couldn’t help but admire that Alden has amassed a lot of money from his work that he can afford a Ferrari, Rolex, and this gaming rig. Below are some of the tweets:
