Zayn first joined Twitter less than a month after 1D first formed on the X Factor, with the star joining Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson in becoming the most successful boyband of our generation, back on July 23.
The boys were together for five years before Zayn decided to leave the band in 2015.
The group went on to stay together for another year, before announcing their hiatus back in 2016, and all embarking on solo careers.
Fans recently celebrated 10 years of One Direction, with Harry, Niall, Louis and Liam all sharing extremely heartfelt posts about their former bandmates, explaining how proud they were of each other and how much they appreciate their fans.
