Inside Swift's Social Media Mayhem

Late last month, we reported on the beginning of Swift's aforementioned TikTok series, which began with a cryptic announcement from the social network.

According to our report, TikTok's US Twitter account tweeted, "meet us @taylorswift13's TikTok account at midnight ET" along with a clock emoji, on September 20th.

'Swift Tok' exploded over the coming weeks with fans flocking to Swift's TikTok account to watch the singer hang out in a retro-inspired room as she cranked numbered ping pong balls out of a bingo cage, and revealed track titles into a vintage phone receiver.

Swifties were adamant in keeping their metaphorical magnifying glasses close and frequently discussed their theories allegedly hidden in the TikToks, including Swift's frequent move of holding her phones upside down.

A Music Video, You Say?

Music videos would soon enter the chat once again in Swift's latest social media post!

On Sunday, October 16th, social media accounts dedicated to Swift lit up with the announcement that there would be not one, but two "Midnights" music videos dropping over the coming weeks.

The news came courtesy of an animated short posted to both Swift's Instagram and TikTok accounts which revolves around a calendar with upcoming dates pertaining to the album!

The post reveals the first music video will premiere on Friday, October 21st at 8AM Eastern time, and will be for the third track, "Anti Hero," which Swift recently called "one of [her] favorite songs [she's] ever written," and divulged would be about her insecurities.

The second music video will be released on October 25th, but Swifties don't officially know which track it will be for.

Twitter fans are theorizing it may be for the track "Vigilante Sh*t," since she had held the phone upside down in the track's TikTok reveal!
