To celebrate his birthday, Styles himself posted a lyric from ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift's song "22" on Twitter: "I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22." (Less than an hour after it was posted, the tweet received over 240,000 retweets.)
Directioners on Twitter are freaking out about the singer's birthday, in typical fashion. Basically, the Internet is throwing Styles a massive birthday party, and anyone with a wifi connection is invited.
Tweets include – but are not limited to – pictures of Styles as an adorable little boy, declarations of love, glam shots of Styles in flamboyant hats and, of course, gifs aplenty.
I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22.— Harry Styles. (@Harry_Styles) February 1, 2016
The general consensus on Twitter seems to be that Styles is a human cupcake/baked good and deserves the best birthday of all time.
