“Applied for xfactor, hope it all wrks out.” – Niall Horan.
Recently, Twitter launched a new campaign by sharing historic tweets by celebs, athletes, and more inspirational figures who manifested their futures years ago with 140-280 characters or less.
Here are 17 people who truly spoke their dreams into existence:
When three-time Grammy winning artist Megan Thee Stallion said rap was going to take off for her.
When Niall Horan tweeted about applying for the competition show X Factor, right before his performance connected him with One Direction group members Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson, thus changing their lives forever.
When Demi Lovato swore they’d sing the national anthem for the Super Bowl one day, and accomplished that goal in 2020.
And, speaking of Demi, they also manifested being nominated for a Grammy x2 in the Best Vocal Album and Pop Duo/Group performance categories.
When Zendaya hoped to one day grace the cover of Seventeen Magazine – a feat she first accomplished in 2016.
When Cher-aficionado Shawn Mendes dreamed of being on Ellen before later appearing on the show and discussing his awkward run-ins with the Royal family.

When actor – and former stock image model – Simu Liu tweeted at Marvel and asked about when they’d be working on an Asian American superhero movie…
… and then doubled down again four years later. Now, he plays the titular role of Shang Chi in the Marvel franchise.
