London: Music mogul Simon Cowell feels former One Direction singer Zayn Malik should take time out from Twitter after a number of recent spats on the micro-blogging site.
Since quitting One Direction in March, the 22-year-old singer has gotten into arguments on Twitter with producer Naughty Boy, former bandmate Louis Tomlinson and DJ Calvin Harris, and
Cowell believed Malik needs to think before he tweets, reported Female First.
"I don't like this Twitter stuff, you are always going to regret what you say on Twitter. With Zayn I just think he needs to get a sense of perspective back in his life, which is that he had a really great opportunity, he decided for whatever reason he didn't want to do it anymore so maybe just keep quiet for a while, make a great record and enjoy life.
"I haven't spoken to him recently. Once the decision was made that he was going to leave the group we always said we would never have him compete with them."
