Louis Tomlinson regrets Twitter outbursts

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has vowed to curb his social media outbursts in future because he has "made some poor judgements" on Twitter.com in the past.

The pop singer became embroiled in a Twitter feud with his former bandmate Zayn Malik earlier this year (15) after the now-solo singer walked off One Direction's world tour and quit the group.


Zayn started the war in May (15) when he reposted a photo British producer Naughty Boy had taken of the pair in the studio, and the image, which had been altered with a filter, prompted a snide comment from Louis.


"Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac (laptop) filters for your pictures were cool haha ! Some people still do HA (sic)!" he tweeted.


Naughty Boy was also drawn into the feud, which escalated after Louis accused him of "riding on the back of someone else's career".


Louis was asked about his social media spats in a new interview with Australian radio host Kent 'Smallzy' Small on Nova FM, and the singer declared he will not be drawn into any more nasty feuds in the future.


"I've not really got any regrets as such (but) I've made some poor judgements on Twitter in the past, that's for sure, but a lot of us have," he explained. "I would probably say (to myself) 'Don't get too (carried away) on Twitter at times', but I think I'm over that now."


During the interview with One Direction, bandmember Liam Payne talked about the band's new album, Made in the A.M., and insisted they did not have to change their plans following Zayn's unexpected exit.


"He'd actually left before we started to really make it," Liam explained. "We'd written songs but those songs are nothing at that point they're not definitely going to make the album there's no solid ground, those songs could be for anybody like it's just a writing session.


"So it was kinda crucial at the time that he left that he had left otherwise it might have made things very different for us cause we'd have to do more re-recording of different things and the more work side of things than anything."


One Direction are facing a chart battle with Justin Bieber, who released his latest record Purpose on the same day as the boyband, but Niall Horan is adamant they are not worried about losing out on the top spot to their pop rival.


"I think it's been made into a little bit of a big deal to be honest," Niall added. "We've been up against Rihanna before and nobody's ever mentioned that! But because it's up against Justin... But it's great. It's good for pop culture. We just hope people like our album and worry about the rest when it happens."
