UPDATE: Since the publication of this article, Zayn Malik has reinstated his Twitter account.
The Twitterverse is mourning one of its most soulful (and well-coiffed) Tweeters this evening: One Direction's Zayn Malik.
Here are the final two tweets he shared before deleting his account and sending his millions of followers (around 4.9) into the depths of #1Despair:
"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"
HollywoodLife.com claims Zayn deactivated his account because of his girlfriend, Perrie Edwards from girl group Little Mix, who had been receiving hate tweets from fans, and PerezHilton.com says he could be "just fed up with the naysayers on the social site."
Regardless of the reason, @zaynmalik, you will be sorely missed. In honor of Z's short and -- we'll say it -- slightly emo time on Twitter, here is a roundup of some of our favorite #deepthoughts from all the 1D boys. Share yours with us @huffpostteen or in the comments!
(And Directioners, hang in there! In the words of the Biebs: "Never say never." Remember Miley and Demi's Twitter breaks?)
