Hookup Alert: Demi Lovato and Trace Cyrus?

By: Betsy Waldman / June 5, 2009

Forget Facebook or Myspace. Twitter is the new place to get your flirt on! 

Miley Cyrus‘ older brother Trace, 20, has been tweeting back and forth to up-and-coming singing sensation Demi Lovato, 16. They both have a lot in common, Trace is co-frontman of the popular band Metro Station, so it makes sense! 

Trace has previously been linked to model Hanna Beth.

Miley and Demi have become close friends over the course of the year—we wonder if she approves of this budding romance? 

Examples of their flirty tweets? 

Demi: “So tired… Stayed up till 5 talking on the phone…. I blame the person on the other end of the line…. Hahaha <3″

Trace: “@ddlovato haha its 3:30 in japan & im still awake. but i blame you! cause i cant get U off my mind! im forcing myself to sleep NOW! night <3″

Aww. How precious.

Readers, have your say in the comments section: Do you think Trace and Demi are really hooking up or just really, really, really close friends?
