So. Much. Emotion.

It’s One Direction’s fourth birthday today.

Twitter: @1D_WorldInfo

Isn’t it SO exciting?

So exciting that fans were waking up and trying to guess which band member would tweet about it first.

In the meantime, Louis Tomlinson’s mum did. And that was so exciting 63,000 people retweeted it.

Then THIS happened. So far 150,000 people have retweeted Niall Horan’s picture.

Which sent Twitter into overdrive.

WHO NEEDS A BOYFRIEND WHEN U HAVE NIALL HORAN TO TELL U HOW SPECIAL U ARE EVERYDAY AND THAT HE LOVES YOU #4YearsOfOneDirection

— DenOfficial_ (@4YearsOfOneDirection)

NIALL TWEETED NOW WE ONLY NEED THE REST TO TWEET ABOUT THEIR 4TH ANNIVERSARY AND WE WILL ALL BE ABLE TO DIE HAPPILY #4YearsOfOneDirection

— LovePizzaNiall (@F A T I M A)

Several One Direction-related hashtags started trending.

Twitter

Such as #4YearsOfOneDirection.

Even Zach Braff got involved.

Now we just need someone other than Niall to wake up and mark this MOMENTOUS day.
