Taylor Swift-ly reacts to hacking

SHARE Taylor Swift-ly reacts to hacking

Not surprisingly, social media-savvy Taylor Swift wasted no time responding to her Twitter and Instagram accounts being hacked by an unknown cyber-assailant who claimed nude photos of the pop superstar were soon-to-be revealed.

Using her frequently exhibited penchant for humor, Swift posted a Twitter message (after her account was corrected and she got a new password) stating, “Any hackers saying they have ‘nudes’? Psssh you’d love that wouldn’t you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING,” Swift tweeted. Another tweet said, “The hackers gonna hack, hack, hack, hack, hack,” a funny reference to her huge hit, “Shake It Off.”

The singer also noted that Hayley Williams from the band Paramore was the person who first alerted her to the hacking of her accounts. Swift alerted her fans on Tumblr that “my Twitter got hacked but don’t worry.”

Earlier Tuesday, the anonymous hacker took over Swift’s social media accounts and linked back to an account that claimed to have a connection with the infamous hackers known as the Lizard Squad. In addition, an obscene photo was posted.

As Swift continued to correspond with her fans, she posted that “Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords. Never a dull moment,” she added.

Swift has one of the largest followings on Twitter with 50-plus million followers. She also has 20-plus million followers on Instagram.
