They only had control for about 15 minutes, but considering Tay Tay has over 50 million followers on Twitter and millions more on Instagram, the reaction was instant, and it was strong. Once Taylor finally got back control, she blasted out a Tweet addressing the hack, as well as a message on her Tumblr.
Well, now I’m awake.
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 passwords.
Never a dull moment.
Then she took to Twitter to address some alleged nude photos the hackers may or may not want you to believe are Taylor.
PS any hackers saying they have 'nudes'? Psssh you'd love that wouldn't you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING.

We are living in a dangerous digital age where encryption, proxies and passwords are complete bullshit; a safety blanket for us computer-illiterate fools to comfort us thinking our content is safe.
Taylor isn't the only pop diva targeted in recent months. As you are well aware, an Israeli hacker broke into Madonna's Dell and stole her entire album, leaking it onto the web months before its tentative release. Bjork... same thing happened. Just assume if anything is on your computer or iPhone (what's an Android), it is probably in the creepy hands of someone else.
Taylor hasn't commented on the hack, but I imagine she's already writing a song about it, and the chorus rhymes with "Katy."
