David Attenborough has an official Guinness World Record to pack. The Instagram account of the 94-year-old presenter was the fastest ever to gather a million followers.

Attenborough has been active on the social network since Thursday. In just over four hours he reached the mark of a million followers. There are now more than 2.5 million.

The account is not managed by Attenborough itself. That’s what Colin Butfield and Johnnie Hughes do, two men who worked on a new nature documentary by Attenborough.

“Social media is not David’s natural habitat,” they wrote in the message below Attenborough’s first video on Thursday Instagram. “Although he records special messages for Instagram, we help run his account.”

In the first (and currently only) video on the account, Attenborough warns that the world is in danger. “Continents are on fire, glaciers are melting and coral reefs are dying,” he says. “In the coming weeks I will explain in these recorded messages what the problems are and what we can do about it.”

The video itself has now been viewed more than nine million times. Almost 36,000 responses have been posted.

Attenborough breaks Jennifer Aniston’s record. The actress has been active on Instagram since October 2019. Within five hours and sixteen minutes, she achieved a million followers. Her first post was a photo with cast members Friends.
