The two 24-year-old women had not been together since they were babies when sectarian unrest forced their family apart. They've reunited and are making TikTok videos together.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Here's a modern-day fairy tale for you. A young woman in Indonesia sees someone who looks just like her in a video on TikTok. She reaches out and discovers it is actually her identical twin sister. Trena and Treni had not been together since they were babies, when sectarian unrest forced their family apart. Now they're 24 years old. Treni took a long train ride across the country to reunite with her sister last week. And now they're making videos together. It's MORNING EDITION.
