(Newser) – Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram on Tuesday—and her debut will be hard to top. So many people viewed her newly created profile that it caused the app to crash, CNN reports. The Guinness Book of World Records says she set a new record by getting 1 million followers in just 5 hours and 16 minutes, beating the previous record holders, Prince Harry and Duchess Megan, by nearly 30 minutes, reports USA Today.

By Wednesday night, she had more than 11 million followers. Aniston's first post on Instagram was a selfie with Friends co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc. She followed it up with a video in which she pretended to get angry at her phone. "I swear I didn't mean to break it," she wrote. "Thank you guys for the kind, glitchy welcome."
