Doncaster Council could barely contain its excitement after the One Direction star added the authority to the 3,700 plus accounts he follows on Twitter.
Tweeting a picture showing that Louis was now among its 12,600 followers, the Council's @MyDoncaster account tweeted: "Thanks for the follow @Louis_Tomlinson. Brace yourself for exciting tweets about gritting and bin collections!" along with a thumbs up emoji.
Louis, who has nearly 25 million Twitter followers, has yet to respond to the council's tweet but fans picked up on the exchange with glee.
