Representatives of the Guinness Book of Records have officially registered a new record. David Attenborough is now the most popular on the Instagram social network
94-year-old David Attenborough is a British television presenter. The man decided to register on the social network Instagram, but no one expected such a man's popularity. The TV presenter has amassed a million subscribers at such an incredible rate that he broke the previous record set by actress Jennifer Aniston last year.
The TV presenter, who talks about nature and the world of animals, made his first publication on September 24. The man posted a video, which on the first day gained more than 10 million views. At the moment, the number of his subscribers is 4.5 million.
For several days, representatives of the Guinness Book of Records have been working to confirm the fact of the new record. The other day, an official statement appeared on the organization's website.
“We are glad to inform everyone that this record has been checked and officially confirmed by our employees” - goes in the statement.
It is very symbolic that David devoted his first publication to nature. It will not be possible to independently maintain an account on the Attenborough social network, for it all functions are performed by assistants. They posted IGTV on which David talks about his fears and worries about global warming.

“I want to use this platform (Instagram) to explain to the public what exactly are the problems of our modern world, as well as tell how we can all overcome them” - says the TV presenter in his first video.
