Taylor Swift’s song “Blank Space” has taken on a whole new meaning after her social media accounts and website went blank on Friday.
Swifties were clearly hoping this wiping of her socials meant the singer would be making a big announcement.
Fans noticed the “Shake It Off” singer had removed all of her profile images on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to blank icons. In addition to that, it appeared Swift also deleted all of her tweets and Instagram posts, making it a blank space for her millions of followers.
Many assumed Swift was preparing to drop new music, but it appears the singer’s social media accounts may have been hacked according to Matt Navarra by Instagram user tarriqxo, whose account has since been deleted.
After all of Swift’s tweets had been deleted, the singer’s Twitter account retweeted (and then quickly undid the retweet) a tweet from a Swift fan mid-afternoon Friday, featuring a picture of a card with a mountain on the front:
Adding even more to the mystery, it appears Swift might be scheduled to appear on “Good Morning America” at the end of the month. According to a fan Twitter account, DirectTV had listed an appearance by Swift scheduled for Aug. 31. But the listing has since been removed:
This wouldn’t be the first time Swift’s accounts have been under attack. In 2015, Swift’s Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked and Swift tried to make light of the situation after, remixing her lyrics to “Shake It Off”.
“Hackers gonna hack hack hack hack hack,” Swift joked. “PS any hackers saying they have ‘nudes’? Psssh you’d love that wouldn’t you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING,” she warned in a follow-up tweet.
Fans aren’t quite sure what to make of what is going on with Swift’s social media:
ET Canada has requested a comment from Swift’s rep.
In the last week, Swift won her groping case against former radio DJ David Mueller. The singer was awarded $1 in damages after the jury found Mueller guilty.
