Posted Aug 23, 2012

Zayn Malik, a singer from the band “One Direction,” had temporarily quit Twitter for about a day.  However when he returned, he had amassed an extra one million Twitter followers in just a couple of hours.  Malik had about 3 million Twitter followers when he quit.  He had quit because celebrity blogger Perez Hilton wrote a tweet that Malik was cheating on his girlfriend.  A lot of people bashed him on Twitter for that.

?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,” said Malik before quitting.  About 24 hours later, he returned and wrote ?Sorry, I was getting some abuse on twitter but I dont want to let my fans down. So I am back!!  x.?
