According to the birthdays listed on the duo's Wikipedia page, Astrid and Franziska are now both 18 years old (they were about 13 when the original video was made). Unfortunately, it looks like the girls have chosen different paths and, at least as far as their music careers go, parted ways. While Franziska (Franzi) is still in the public eye and pursuing music, Astrid seems to have stepped out of the limelight for a more private life.
Honestly, all I could find of Astrid is what I think is her Facebook page. Please do *not* friend her or bother her using that link. First of all, I can't be 100% sure it's her (only 99% sure), and secondly, it's private for a reason. It looks like that's her personal Facebook for her personal life. I'm not sure how she'd feel about fan mail, but if you do send messages or anything, please be kind and respectful. It looks like she's happy and surrounded by some good friends. Hopefully all is going well for her!

Franzi was a lot easier to find. Her Facebook page is made for her fans, so please like it to keep up with what she's doing! She's still performing music on stage, but it looks like she may have taken a small break for a couple of years.

Since June 2013, Franzi has been in Stefanie Hertel's DirndlRockBand. Thanks to that, she's been touring with them in several countries and been with them on stage on on television. Franzi's Facebook page also chronicles her adventures on the road and what she's doing outside of the band. She writes in German, but there are plenty of pictures and videos...plus there's always the Google translate button. I'm sure she'd love to not only have more likes on her page, but also to hear from her fans. Hopefully her music career continues strong and her talent shines through!

All is not lost Twinnies fans! Franzi also has a youtube account. And there are some videos of her and Astrid hidden among the other great videos. Here's the most recent one I could find. Enjoy!
Both girls have become beautiful young ladies and I wish them success in whatever they choose to pursue! Hopefully this was helpful to everyone curious about where Die Twinnies are now!
