Dixie D’Amelio fuels dating rumors with fellow TikToker Griffin Johnson

Dixie D’Amelio, sister to the world’s most famous TikTok star, is now at the center of gossip herself following a hint that she is dating one of the app’s other creators: Griffin Johnson.

Like all great mysteries, there are a ton of signs suggesting that Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson are dating—but no definitive proof. The two have been considered TikTok’s “it couple,” following sister Charli D’Amelio’s breakup with Chase “Lil Huddy” Hudson back in April.

Boasting a combined 32.2 million followers on the app (a full 26 million courtesy of Dixie), the two would theoretically be quite the power couple, but both have remained equivocal about their status. Most recently, she responded to a fan’s inquiry about their dating, in response to a picture of the two all cuddled up, by simply telling them to “ask Griffin.”

 

 

Incredibly coy of the TikTok superstar, yet somehow not nearly as coy as Griffin’s response, or lack thereof.

Given the history of their content, it’s hard to imagine that they’re not dating. The two are constantly affectionate with one another, belying what one traditionally expects from platonic friendships. But it is possible that they’re simply creating such content for show, just like the app’s male stars don dangling, upside-down-cross earrings despite likely not being regular Sunday church attendees.

Still, no one really knows what’s up with these two presumed love birds and it’s possible that they don’t really know, either. Dixie is 18 years old, Griffin is 19, and the internet has only been able to dissect their romantic interests since around October and December, 2019, when each began sharing on TikTok, respectively.

While many acts of courtship involve one party playing hard to get, it appears that both parties here are playing hard to get with their millions of fans—not letting anyone in on their status.

But they certainly do play the game, as each is constantly centering their content around the other in one way or another. While Dixie posted the aforementioned snuggly picture (and Griffin, of course, retweeted it), he has broadcast his own hints as well, most recently by publicizing a negging pet name for her: “stinky.”

 

As of yet, there has been no confirmation or denial from Griffin on the full extent of him and Dixie’s relationship. And it appears that she won’t be providing any certainty in his stead.

This is a bummer for people who loathe uncertainty, but probably just even better content for millions of TikTok fans who enjoy speculating over their favorite stars’ romantic lives.

Twitch bot finds PS5s and Xbox Series Xs in-stock so you don’t have to

A popular new Twitch bot is doing all the legwork to help gamers find out what stores have PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stock.

Gamers have been hard-pressed to find a next-gen console for themselves or loved ones as the Christmas season approaches. It seems like almost everywhere is sold out, leaving only scalpers who have been selling units for insane markups.

Now, a new Twitch bot has entered the fray and is helping anyone who can’t keep up with the constant refreshing know when they can get their hands on Sony or Microsoft’s new console.

Viewers can simply go to the Twitch channel and watch live as the bot searches through various sites to find inventory. The bot will actively check through Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and more and state whether they’re out of stock or have consoles in.

As a nice little bonus, the channel even says when the last “drop” was. At the time of publishing, the last store to get both consoles in stock was Walmart at 9:30 PM EST on November 25.

Users can also use the !local command to check any store stock near them.

According to Polygon, the channel is run by Cam Ritz and uses a program called streetmerchant that does the monitoring.

The program’s features page state that it “scrapes multiple websites for patterns of being stocked via API and Chromium.”

Ritz claims that so far, the bot has helped viewers actually find consoles – with a few nabbing Series Xs from GameStop and Sam’s Club.

Unfortunately, for most viewers, watching the stream will result in a near-endless red wave of OUT OF STOCK notifications, further cementing just how difficult it is to find a console this year.

As the days continue and the Christmas season approaches, keeping this channel open may be a great tool if you’re actively still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Or for those who have managed to already snag a console, it can serve as a reminder of just how difficult it can be.
