TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio has announced that she is leaving Twitter, and her fans are beside themselves as one of the internet’s biggest personalities takes her leave from one of social media’s largest platforms.

For those out of the loop, Dixie D’Amelio is a major personality on TikTok, where she boasts an impressive 47.8 million followers on the viral video app.

Known for her catchy dance videos, original music, and being big sister to TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio, Dixie has created an empire of her own in her own right; but in spite of her success, it seems that she’s leaving one social media site behind.

On January 8, Dixie announced that she would be leaving Twitter, leading to chaos among her fans.

“Good bye Twitter,” she wrote. “It was fun.”

However, many noted the timing of her post, which occurred quite close to the time Twitter announced its suspension of Donald Trump’s account. This notably incited some criticism against her, which she clarified in another post.

“Is Dixie leaving Twitter because Trump did?” one user asked. “That’s what I’ve heard, help-”

“Like no, wtf,” Dixie replied.

Dixie D'Amelio denies leaving Twitter due to Trump's suspension.

The TikToker also followed up her initial tweet with an explanation that she quickly deleted, sharing a photo of herself covering her mouth, as though yawning.

“This is why I’m leaving Twitter,” she captioned the pic. “Sorry for my disgusting timing lmaooo.”

That’s not all; Dixie further clarified her reasons for leaving Twitter on her Instagram account, where she hit out at critics accusing her of being a Trump supporter in wake of his own Twitter ban.

“I don’t f**king support Trump,” she wrote. “I’ve said it 100 f**king times… the reason I deleted Twitter was because I spend way too much time reading hate. My timing was just awful lol.”

“Hate me but talk about every move I make… okay?” she followed up in a separate post.

The TikToker has notably been a favorite target of trolls throughout her career as an entertainer, many of whom criticize her musical pursuits. In fact, she was driven to completely delete the teaser for her song “One Whole Day” in December after receiving a wave of backlash over the small snippet she’d shared of the tune.

For now, it looks like Dixie’s days on Twitter are over, and she seems to have officially deleted her account.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
