TikTok Couple Announce They’re Also Step-Siblings | 22 Words

Social media has completely taken over the world.

If it's not Facebook, it's Instagram. And if it's not Instagram, it's Twitter. The possibilities of social media are endless, but so are the totally pointless traits that modern-day technology holds.

TikTok - the video-making app that allows users to create short videos that very quickly go viral - is one of them.

But one TikTok story has broken the internet this week.

TikTok is absolutely taking over the world.

It's pretty unlikely that you'll see a teenager who isn't obsessed with the social media platform.

It's not just teenagers who are obsessed with social media...

The majority of us adults are too, with us posting every inch of our lives on these apps and communicating with others through them solely.

A lot of social media apps provide many purposes...

People can actually earn a living through social media, such as selling things on Instagram or starting a business through Twitter.

But there are some apps that aren't so productive...

And TikTok is one of them!

A lot of people are struggling to understand exactly what TikTok is...

Basically, it is an iOS and Android app made for creating and sharing short lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos.

It went viral pretty quick ...

It was the world's fourth most downloaded app in 2018, beating Instagram and Snapchat - which is a pretty big achievement!

It has been argued that TikTok is better than Vine...

Who remembers Vine? Launched in 2012, Vine was a short-form video hosting service that allowed users to share 6-second-long looping video clips.

TikTok videos look a little something like this...

And it has to be said, the majority of them are rather entertaining.

Animals and TikTok are the best combination.

More and more people jumped on board the TikTok bandwagon and started getting their beloved pets involved.

The rise of superstars...

People began getting more and more creative, including autotuning this kitty's annoyed yowls.

Some are just plain weird...

It's a mystery as to what goes through people's heads when these types of TikTok videos are made...

It can now be established that TikTok is just a space for weird videos.

But some people still cannot get their heads around it!

But there's one new TikTok story that's taking the internet by storm.

So! Much! Drama!

As one viral TikTok couple has revealed a strange secret.

The pair behind the Alpha Familia account are not just boyfriend and girlfriend - they're step-siblings, too.

"We met six years ago but we started dating three years ago."

"We met through our parents," Diana explained.

"We love each other, and if you don't like it well too bad."

"People are very negative about our relationship. We get negativity daily."

"It's hard for people to understand our relationship, but love is love."

"It's hard to know who you're going to fall in love with."

"We are just taking it as it goes. Right now, we're not planning on having any kids, but in the future of course."
