Taylor Swift Disappears off of social media

Just call them mystic Meg.

After deleting ALL of her posts on Instagram, it's fair to say that Taylor Swift's fans have been left with somewhat of an empty space (literally) in their hearts.

While the 'Shake It Off' star is usually VERY active on social media, her loyal followers were quick to notice the missing photos and profile pictures from the pop singer's account on Friday (18.08.17), sparking a frenzy of panic and fan theories.

Avid followers of the megastar also spotted that the 27-year-old had also cleared her Twitter account of any recent posts and her Tumblr account had also vanished into the abyss. Very mysterious.

As the news sent some Taylor Swift fans into a frenzy, others to took to Twitter convinced that the change was a sign that new music was on the way!

Other's took to social media with the theory that the Swift had been hacked.

Tay's fans may be on to something, as this wouldn't be the first time that the young star has used clever marketing to promote a new album. Swift made similar changes to her website before the release of her album Red in 2012 and again in 2014 before the release of 1989.

Some fans also linked the social media shutdown to the third anniversary of the star's single 'Shake It Off'. Very clever!

With Taylor's close pal Ed Shereen telling the BBC in March that Taylor Swift wouldn't be releasing new music "until Probably the end of the year", the fans could be on to something.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
