One Direction's Zayn Malik shocked his more than 5 million followers on Tuesday night, August 21, when he abruptly deleted his Twitter account, @zaynmalik.
"The reason I don't Tweet as much as I used to is because I'm sick of all the useless opinions and hate that I get daily goodbye Twitter :)" Zayn wrote before signing off for good. "My fans that have something nice to say can tweet me on the One Direction account :) x"
Heartbroken fans quickly made #ComeBackZayn a worldwide trending topic on Twitter and urged him to rethink his decision.
Other stars like Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus have sworn off Twitter in the past, only to reactivate their accounts months later. But, for now at least, @zaynmalik remains deleted.
Do you think Zayn Malik made the right choice by quitting Twitter?
