Chris Romero and Madi Monroe were once one of the most popular ships in the TikTok scene. However, they split up just as things were heating up. While they’ve been hanging out together more recently, leading to rumors, they’ve cleared the air.

Chris Romero and Madi Monroe were one of TikTok’s cutest couples. They met in 2019, instantly hit it off, and were together for over a year.

The duo share a huge fanbase, with Madi boasting over 12 million followers on TikTok, while Chris has over 5 million. That’s not including their millions of fans combined on Instagram and other sites.

Madi Monroe and Chris Romero were together for over a year before splitting in October 2020.

The two were very much committed to each other, with Chris even celebrating their anniversary by getting a tattoo of Madi’s name on his lip.

By October 2020 though, the duo had reportedly broken up. There were suggestions Chris had cheated on Madi.

New photos have emerged of the two reportedly staying with each other, which led to rumors re-igniting about the two being back together.

However, Madi has posted a statement clearing the air, saying she’s “not talking to anyone.”

“Chris and I are not back together. We are strictly friends, and no he is not staying at my house. It’s really frustrating when everyone constantly assumes they know everything about what goes on in my life,” she said on an Instagram story.

It comes after photos of Chris staying at Madi’s and using her bathroom did the rounds on the internet on November 21. Madi even played into the joke, asking Chris to clean her bathroom on TikTok.

Madi’s statement has definitely put a dash to the rumors many fans were hoping could be true. They aren’t back together, although it looks like their earlier split was amicable enough to remain friends.

Time can only tell if they do rekindle the flame though. While Madi and Chris are busy pursuing other projects for now, their paths could align once again, and that’ll really get their fans excited.


TikTok is letting some users experiment with 3-minute long videos

Some TikTok users are reporting that they have been given the ability to upload three-minute long videos to the platform. Previously, users were able to upload videos with a 60-second maximum, meaning the new update will triple the length of time clips can be.

Currently, TikTok only allows for 60-second videos which, while that might not exactly be considered “short”, allows user to very quickly browse through them without much searching.

While previous rumor and speculation have indicated that fans are able to upload content outside of that 60-second restriction if they upload a video from their camera roll, many creators have had to live with minute-long videos for quite some time now. Fast forward to December 2020, and that might be changing soon.

Some TikTok content creators have been told that they are now allowed to upload 3-minute long videos.

As originally noticed by Social Media Commentator Matt Navarra and originally reported by The Verge, TikTok has started issuing notices to certain creators that they are now able to upload three-minute long videos to the platform, triple the previous amount of time.

Currently, it’s unknown how widely available the feature is. According to the notice, creators who have been given this feature are told they have gotten “early access”, so it’s possible and incredibly likely that only a very few, select amount of people have the ability to create three-minute long videos and that it’ll remain like that for a while.

Unfortunately, beyond this, there’s no other information available about the feature. There’s also no timetable as to when it will be available to all content creators or if it ever will become available to others. It also has yet to even be officially acknowledged by the company in any capacity, with no notice posted to their Twitter account or website, so it may come down to the fact that they want to see how it does before they even talk about it.

All in all, it’ll be interesting to see what happens with this feature in the future. Given the fact that 60-seconds is a relatively short amount of time, it makes sense to have longer videos on the platform. Still, it remains to be seen how the company will handle it in the future.
