After Zayn Malik deleted his twitter yesterday, The Huffington Post made a list of the top 10 most-followed teenage tweeters! You can read what they wrote below and the full list!
When One Direction fans heard the news that band member Zayn Malik deleted his Twitter last night, it was the cry of #1Distress heard ’round the Twitterverse. His final tweet — sent out to 4.9 million followers — read, “The reason i don’t tweet as much as i use to, is because I’m sick of all the useless opinions and hate that i get daily goodbye twitter ”
Before he deleted his account, Zayn was one of the most-followed teens on all of Twitter. In fact, even without Zayn, the boys of One Direction are well-represented in the top 10. But there are still a few young stars who have more than double the followers of even the most popular band member on Twitter, Harry Styles.
(And for those of you mourning the loss of @zaynmalik’s existential tweets, have hope: stars like Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus have taken breaks from the social networking site and returned to it later!)
