To celebrate the fact that our favourite curly haired, sparkly-boots-wearing boybander reaches the ripe age of 22 this week, we take a look at his best tweets. It took us some digging through Harry’s countless tweets thanking fans from [insert city] for being an amazing crowd, but we managed to compile a list with both classics and hidden gems. Here we go.
22. When he shared his wardrobe related concerns with us
I feel like I should own more velvet tracksuits…
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) October 11, 2011
We’d like to see this happen.
21. When he talked about his experiences on the road
Am I the only person who doesn't floss while driving?!
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) June 20, 2013
No idea who you’ve been carpooling with besides James Corden but no Harry, you’re probably not the only one who doesn’t floss while driving.
20. Spreading this truth
Shania Twain is so good.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) October 8, 2013
Can’t disagree with him on this one, can you?
19. Harry Styles and the Numb Body Parts
Woke up in a sterling mood today!! Hope everyone's good!! I slept on my arm and now it's floppy….
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) December 11, 2011
Spiffing Morning!!! Somehow slept on my nose and now it looks wonky…
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 2, 2012
I slept on my shoulder, now my left arm is numb and is just hanging. It seems to be about 4 inches longer than my right. Cool.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) September 7, 2012
To be continued, probably.
18. Asking the question that all of us wish we never asked
@lostboyhoran what does otp mean?
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) April 18, 2013
We’ve all been there.
17. Expressing his love for a certain movie
The last scene of Grease is still the best piece of cinematic genius I have ever seen.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) April 25, 2013
Always feel lucky when Grease songs come on the radio.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) June 5, 2013
Hey Harry, we know another One Direction member who really loves Grease… maybe you could watch it together sometimes?
16. When he was all of us
Hiiii, I slept all day. Ate cereal at 5pm.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) April 3, 2013
Who hasn’t done this at least once?
15. This (not so thrilling) saga
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 1, 2013
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 3, 2014
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 1, 2015
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 2, 2016
A man of few words, that Harry Styles.
14. This rather interesting tweet
Unidentified gel in deceivingly small tube does not taste the same as toothpaste. Fact.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 23, 2014
We’d like to know what exactly went down in the Styles household for this tweet to happen, but we have some ideas…
13. This joke
@joshua_fox literally working hard?
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) May 26, 2014
It’s even better when you open the picture in the tweet Harry replied to. As we have argued before in this article, Harry Styles is One Direction’s funniest member.
12. When he persistently ignored the fact that One Direction’s album leaked
@happilysusie but you haven't heard that yet. Have you. Have you. Nope.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) November 13, 2014
Our favourite time of the year: One Direction Album Leak Season. Since there isn’t any real harm done as 1D’s wonderful fans buy the album anyway, it’s always fun to watch any of the boys pretending it didn’t happen.
11. When he and Nick Grimshaw fought their issues out online
@grimmers you never call anymore. You've left me no choice.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) October 22, 2015
Don’t worry, Gryles is still going strong. Nick was just replying to one of Harry’s tweets in which he teased some Hey Angel lyrics and Harry didn’t hesitate to hit back with another joke.
10. Opening up about Louis’ toilet habits
If @Louis_Tomlinson feels tired…he sits down to have a wee…I've seen it.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) September 1, 2011
Another one of those tweets that have us wondering what goes down in the Styles household.
9. Opening up about Liam’s problems
Liam just dribbled on a suitcase.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 13, 2012
Long flight…slightly worried that Liam is going to dribble on me while he's asleep.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) April 9, 2012
We could make a cheesy joke about how Harry makes us drool as well, but we won’t.
8. When he was living the dream
@Louis_Tomlinson just came and got in my bed with a cup of tea. Backstreet Boys are on 4Music… Typical Wednesday.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) November 22, 2011
Our invite probably got lost in the mail.
7. When he was full of great advice
Hello… If you're hanging around with some friends today with 9 hours to kill..
You could all watch 'THIS IS US' 6 times! What a day…
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) August 29, 2013
Funny, Harry. It’s not like anyone would really do that. Certainly not us. No.
6. When he was very happy and maybe a little bit drunk
A moment, a love, a dream, a laugh, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs…A Moment AAAHHHHHH!!
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) April 23, 2012
Add to this tweet the rare footage we have of this night and yeah – we’re pretty sure Harry was having a lot of fun in Wellington in April 2012.
5. More great advice
Never make eye contact with anyone while eating a banana.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) June 23, 2013
Curious advice coming from a guy who has been eating banana’s in front of thousands of people for years, but we’ll take it anyway.
4. When he was his lovely supportive self
Despite the company outside, I believe in equal rights for everyone. I think God loves all. Thanks for coming to the show though.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) July 20, 2013
A true classic: one of the first times Harry openly voiced his support for the LGBTQ+ community. Thinking of how many times he has done the same thing since then never fails to warm our hearts.
3. When he studied rainbows
I study rainbows.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) January 14, 2015
One of Harry’s most popular tweets – though there has been a bit of discussion about what it exactly means. We’re sure he’ll explain in due time.
2. When he got us all crying our eyes out
It's been five years. Thank you for all your support so far. Isn't it lovely. H
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) April 11, 2015
The perfect mixture of emotional and funny – thanking his fans for the support, but not letting the opportunity slide to reference his audition song. We love you, Harry.
1. When he came up with this beautiful motto
Be nice to nice.
— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) August 13, 2014
Harry Styles, you truly are an inspiration to us all. Happy birthday.
