Five million followers will miss the tweets of one @zaynmalik.

One Direction member Zayn Malik has not only cut down on his Twitter posts, but decided to deactivate his account all together—but not before giving his fans an explanation.

Before pulling the plug on his account, Malik wrote, "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 :) My fans that have something nice to say can tweet me on the one direction account , :) x"

 Zayn isn't the first from the One Direction family to ditch Twitter—well, kinda.

Harry Styles' rumored girlfriend Emma Ostilly said goodbye to the Twittersphere in April after being on the receiving end of some fan backlash and hate tweets.
