Zayn Malik has kept rather quiet since exiting One Direction last month, especially on Twitter.

The singer announced his departure on the group's Facebook page on March 25 and, shortly after, reportedly told The Sun he felt he made the right decision. Malik made his first public appearance since leaving One Direction on Saturday at the Asian Awards and thanked his former band members. But now, Malik has broken his month-long Twitter silence to thank the fans.

And just in case anyone misinterpreted the "x" at the end of his tweet, Malik followed up to clarify his love.
