As you probably know, the fans on Twitter (and really all social media in general) have been a HUGE part of One Direction's career and getting them to where they're at now as the world's biggest pop group. Following the press conference for their movie, "One Direction: This Is Us," on Monday (August 19) the boys sat down with BBC News and talked to them about the impact of Twitter.
"Twitter was such a big element," band member Liam Payne said. "It's just the way the fans are with Twitter, we always said they could definitely have jobs as promoters. The way they spread the word about us is so mad and that's what got us to where we are."
The boys are all about being themselves on Twitter but it seems like Liam likes to be a little more free than fellow band mate Niall Horan who has a nice little rule for himself when it comes to tweeting.
"Don't tweet anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to hear," Niall said. But Liam kinda disagreed saying, "I think if you think into it too much it will drive you a bit nuts."
Liam added: "The main thing and the main plus point of our band is that we're ourselves 100% of the time so we're always just gonna tweet and do what we want. Sorta."
"I think the positives are interactions," band mate Harry Styles added about Twitter. "I never imagined when I was younger that anyone I listened to on the radio could answer me with a simple tweet. I think it's incredible how close the connection is now. In terms of dangers I think you just have to be aware and not share too much."
