The singer makes it clear that Bobby Horan doesn't do social networking

Niall Horan got freaked out yesterday when he discovered a Twitter user pretending to be his dad Bobby.

The One Direction singer, 20, warned the impostor to delete the account – which they later did – and told them that their behaviour was incredibly odd.

‘can u stop pretending to be my dad! My dad can barely text never mind use twitter, it’s creepy and strange !’ Tweeted Niall.

This isn’t the first time a 1D fan has created a Twitter page in the name of one of the lads’ family members or loved ones.

Liam Payne‘s sisters blasted a ‘disgusting person’ who Tweeted that his mum had died while claiming they were the star’s girlfriend Sophia Smith in August.

Earlier this week, Louis Tomlinson‘s mum Johannah confirmed that his siblings Fizzy, Phoebe and Daisy aren’t on the social networking site.

Niall has made it clear that the only people in his immediate family who Tweet are his older brother Greg and his wife Denise.

‘My brother and Denise are the only ones with twitter so any of you pretending to be my parents! Stop ! It’s actually really freaky!’ wrote Niall.
