Niall Horan confirmed that his Twitter account had been hacked today.
The One Direction singer had apparently been sending strangers private messages and following users unbeknownst to him.
"Ok my twitter is being hacked as we speak!" he wrote. "Unfollowing people! DMin people all kinda stuff! Will get control again."
Earlier in the day, fans of the pop star had made the hastag "NIALLCHANGEYOURPASSWORD" trending worldwide in an effort to catch Horan's attention.
Two particular Directioner devotees took notice of his following patterns and came to the conclusion that his social media platform had indeed been compromised.
