Ed Sheeran's disappearance from Twitter appears to be short-lived.

The singer's account is back online hours after it suddenly vanished. All of Sheeran's tweets since April 2015 have been removed, and the singer-songwriter's more than 19 million followers have been reduced to a few thousand.

The moves follow his cameo on the season premiere of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones on Sunday night. Sheeran's appearance as a singing soldier became a buzzed-about topic on social media.

The 26-year-old told Britain's Sun tabloid this month that he was no longer using his Twitter account aside from posting his Instagram pictures to it. He called Twitter a platform for "saying mean things" and was trying to "work out why people dislike me so much."

Sheeran's representatives didn't immediately return a request for comment.
