Taylor Swift’s Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked on Tuesday night (January 27).
It seems the “Blank Space” singer’s official pages may have been targeted by the Lizard Squad after several messages appeared on her account, urging her fans to follow a user with the Twitter handle @Lizzard, whose profile claimed he was the “leader” of the hacking group.
A photo was also posted on Swift’s Instagram account which encouraged users to follow another account apparently involved in the Twitter hack.
The people behind the hack claimed to have naked photos of T-Swizzle, with the 25-year old strongly denying that intimate snaps of herself were about to hit the web.
After regaining control of her social media accounts, Swift acknowledged the now-deleted tweets on her official Tumblr page, joking that there is “never a dull moment”.
She added: “My Twitter got hacked but don’t worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new password.”
After realising her Insta account had also been compromised, she added: “This is going to be a long day.”
However, Tay soon saw the funny side to the hacking, changing the lyrics to her hit single Shake It Off by writing: “Cause the hackers gonna hack, hack, hack, hack, hack…”
She also went on to slam that the hackers had naked photos of her by stating: “PS any hackers saying they have ‘nudes’? Psssh you’d love that wouldn’t you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING.”
