Zayn Malik took the "1D" out of his name on Twitter, officially squashing Directioners' dreams that he still considers himself a part of One Direction. While his display name used to read "zaynmalik1d," it now just says "zaynmalik."

In fact, the singer has stripped his profile clean, and he currently doesn't even have a bio.
He still says that he's in England, though.
But we kind of knew that these changes were coming. He recently swapped out his old Twitter picture to reflect his new haircut, and 1D has been slowly removing him from their social media accounts too. It seems like everyone is trying to move on!
Recently, Zayn has also been posting philosophical tweets, like he's slowly trying to get back on social media and make a fresh start.
