Are you like us and sick of trailing through thousands of Twitter accounts for vital One Direction gossip? Have you ever clicked on a Twitter account expecting to get groundbreaking 1D scoops only to read tweets like “Niall Is Irish” or “Harry haz niiiice haar”? Well, we have just the solution.
We have created a must-follow list for all Directioners (of course you should follow us too) of 15 of the best One Direction devoted Twitter accounts that provide the best content and here’s a brief review of each. There is a 1D Twitter Update account for every type of 1D fan.
@1DAlert-This account has LOTS of pictures… and we mean LOTS!
@1DGPSOfficial- Great tweets and is always replying and answering Directioners questions, like a 1D Oracle if you will.
@1DUpdateGirls- This twitter account gets bonus points for helping fans find tickets to 1D concert!
@1DFAQ- Excellent source of 1D gifs and clearly labels content.
@1DirectionTeam- Has some fun videos with lots of fan interaction.
@1DFranceUpdates- You might have guessed from the name but this is a French 1D Updates account, but it tweets in English so everyone can understand.
@1DStalker- Don’t let the name put you off, this account loves and knows all about One Direction.
@1DReport- Does exactly what it says on the tin and reports about One Direction with up to the minute news.
@1DTourUpdate-This account is great for tour info and media coverage.
@the1DScene- Lots of interaction with even more cute pics.
@1Dupdates2- These guys love shout outs and retweets and (of course) One Direction.
@1DirectionFans- Loves retweeting and interacting with lots of up to date news.
@1DNeews- Fun trivia and pics for all directioners… that’s what we like to see.
@team_1direction- Great source of 1D goss but also supports other bands and artists, which is nice (hope they’re not after our job).
@STYLATORARMY– This account has lots of tweets with great content. It’s VERY active. But it has to be, it has nearly 780 thousand followers.
AND due to popular demand (just look at the comment box below!) we have added @1DSuperHumans to our poll!
How about we do this in true X Factor fashion? Just as Harry, Zayn, Louis, Liam and Niall were voted for by the public it’s up to you to crown your favourite 1D Update account. Which account has that ‘One Thing’ that no other has? Cast your votes below. Voting is closed!
