Our long national nightmare is over: One Direction's Zayn Malik has rejoined Twitter.
Exhale, everyone. The longest 36 hours of our lives has passed.
"Sorry, I was getting some abuse on twitter but I dont want to let my fans down," Malik tweeted in his triumphant return to the social media site this morning. "So I am back!! :) x"
We'd say let the celebrations begin, but it seems they already have, as Zayn was immediately inundated with welcome-back messages from his fans after having abruptly announced his departure from Twitter on Tuesday.
"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 :)" the pop star wrote at the time. Well, what a difference a day (and a bit) makes.
"And thanks for all your messages of support," he wrote this morning after retweeting some of the more effusive welcome-back messages he received. "I really do love all you guys, your support never ceases 2 amaze me xxx"
And just in case his return to the site wasn't exciting enough, he also offered up this tease for his fans: "Can't wait to share our big news with you :) x"
As long as it's not another ship-jump, we think the fans will be able to handle it just fine.
