Zayn Malik is turning twenty-three this week and we couldn’t be more emotional about it! We were there from 2010 when he was scared to dance on the X Factor and we’re here now at the beginning of his solo career. Our eyes were really teary the entire time we were looking through the memories on Zayn’s Twitter account.
However we’ve made it through and picked 23 of Zayn’s tweets which we think are really important, sassy, or funny. Or everything all at once.
23. Nothing’s changed…
We can just guess whether or not was this tweet addressed to the 1D fans.
Nothing changed you just never knew ,

22. Thanks bro!
One of the most iconic tweets of 2015 for the One Direction/Zayn fandom! Zayn was responding to Liam’s tweet about the 1D anniversary. This was the first time Zayn’s interacted with the boys since he left the band on March 25th.
@Real_Liam_Payne thanks bro ! ? x
