One year to the day - Ed Sheeran breaks his social media silence

We remember it like it was yesterday, the day Ed Sheeran told the world that he was taking a break from his “phone, emails and social media for a while”.

The singer explained on December 12, 2015 that he found himself seeing the world through a screen instead of his eyes.



Fast forward to today, exactly one year later the singer has jumped back on Twitter with this, a blue square.

He also followed suit on Instagram and Facebook.

Last year Beyoncé, Jay Z, Kanye West, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj pulled similar stunts changing their profile to a turquoise square.

It was later revealed that it was to promote Jay Z’s streaming platform, Tidal.

As you can imagine Ed’s reappearance has caused a lot of confusion and excitment throughout the interwebs.
