21 Hilarious Old Taylor Swift Tweets That Will Make You Laugh & Then Cry
The moment everyone noticed that she was seemingly deleting her social media presence, fans started to pore through Taylor Swift's old tweets. The 1989 singer has already erased years of Twitter content, but looking at some of her earlier posts will make you laugh until there are tears in your eyes, remembering the good old days. Whether she’s getting excited about fellow artists, tweeting thank yous to her fans, or just sharing mundane details about life on tour, there’s an eagerness in the now-27-year-old tweets that’s impossible to resist.
There was a time when she shared all of that, so take a walk down memory lane before it’s too late. It’s possible, of course, that Swift will make her triumphant return to social media with more content than ever before, once she has a clean slate or if she has been hacked. But this erasure could also signal the blonde’s intent to take a step back from her more public persona, and these tweets might be your only opportunity to say goodbye.
As it is, the only tweets we could get our hot little hands on were from 2010 and earlier, and they might not even be live on her feed anymore. So take a gander at them here and remember the good old days when our girl Taylor Swift still wanted us to know what she was up to.
