There's a truly stupendous number of people who tweet band member Harry Styles to tell him that their pets have just passed away and can they please just get a RT?

Every band has its superfans, but One Directioners take super to a whole different level.

Meaning that when scrolling through the many messages from fans wanting to discuss their menstrual cycle with the boys of 1D, you might just end up catching a tweet from Internet gross-out celebrity Giovanna Plowman

Even Larry Stylinson—fandom’s dream pairing/conspiracy theory involving Styles and Tomlinson—has more of a presence there than most real pop stars, with 526,088 tagged photos to date, while the group itself, #onedir...
