Life is good for Niall Horan. His song “Slow Hands” is a huge hit. He’s about to head out on a global tour. And now, amazingly, he’s officially the most popular One Direction member on Twitter.
Known for being the quiet member of the boy band, Horan has managed to rack up a staggering 30.9 million followers on Twitter, Metro pointed out.
For comparison’s sake, the nearest 1D member is Harry Styles, with 30.8 million. That might sound close, but still a wide margin for Styles to overcome. At least he can rest knowing he still has more Instagram followers: 21.2 million to Horan’s 19.5 million.
Of course, the Instagram winner among One Direction members is Zayn Malik, who has an amazing 23 million followers on the platform. Meanwhile, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have only 13.7 million and 13.3 million Instagram followers, respectively.
Things are only set to get bigger for Horan as he sets off on his Flicker Sessions 2017 solo tour, starting in Dublin on August 28.
Before the tour, Horan has been hard at work in the studio recording his debut solo album, and it’s just about ready to go. Judging from his social media following and the success of “Slow Hands”, it’s going to be huge.
