Harry Styles makes Twitter history as the former One Direction star becomes the first UK celebrity to reach 30 million followers

According to stats released by the micro-blogging site, the 23-year-old’s following is bigger than the population of Nepal, which only reaches a measly 28.8 million in comparison.

The news comes as Harry’s self-titled debut solo album reached number one of the iTunes chart on its first week of release.

Hoping to following in his footsteps is former bandmember Liam Payne, 23, who also marks his solo career with first single Strip That Down on Friday (May 19).

Liam, along with fellow ex 1D stars, also made the cut of the current top 10 most followed UK celebrities on Twitter.

While the band’s ex-manager Simon Cowell’s following is bigger than that of Rwanda - Niall’s, Louis’, Liam’s and Zayn's individual followings rivals that of Angola, Australia, Taiwan and Sri Lanka respectively.


It’s not just Harry’s professional life that is looking up, his love life seems to be going in the right direction too.

Harry is reported to be dating Naked Diet food blogger Tess Ward.

While news of their potential romance only broke on May 9, it seems she has already fallen victim to the star’s famously loyal fanbase on social media.

The 27-year-old also received scathing, one-star reviews for her book, The Naked Diet, on Amazon.
