Announcement Reddit Blackout to support people with disability


Hi everyone, I saw this posted on another sub and was wondering what people’s thoughts are on joining in? These changes will make it really hard for people with disability to access Reddit :( something that I feel very strongly about. Would love to see our inclusive Swiftie community join in.

Edit: wow the support for this warms my heart <3 would be fantastic if we could do this, I think it will be up to the mods to lock/ make this sub private on the day. Will leave it up to the mods to make the time/ etc official too. Thank you everyone ❤️❤️

r/taylorswift is joining the Reddit blackout from June 12th to protest the planned API changes that will kill 3rd party apps and Reddit access for vision impaired people

Hey r/taylorswift

Recently Reddit Inc has announced changes to their API which, if enacted, will shut down many, if not all, 3rd party apps that a large number of Redditors use to access and enjoy their favourite communities. Critically, this also completely guts access to Reddit for visually impaired people as screen readers are 3rd party apps.

One of the most critical changes to the API is that it is moving from a free to a paid model, resulting in expenses that developers of 3rd party apps simply cannot afford. To put the price change in to context, Apollo, one of the most popular 3rd party apps for Reddit, is looking at a cost of US$1.7 million per month to continue operating. That's a cost of US$12,000 per 50 million API requests. In contrast, Apollo pays Imgur US$166 for every 50 million API calls.

This means popular apps like Apollo, Reddit Is Fun, Narwhal and many more will have to shut down, permanently.

Even if you're not using a 3rd party app yourself, these changes are likely to impact the communities you enjoy as well, with the vast majority of moderation teams relying on 3rd party or self-made tools, that utilise Reddit's API.

Additionally, if you are a member of a community that uses bots - those will also cease to function.

And on top of all that, it paints a bleak picture of what is to come for those of us who use other tools, like Reddit Enhancement Suite and old.reddit.com.

Here's a little TLDR on why this is important.

So what are we planning?

On June 12th, we and a growing number of other subs - large and small - will go dark. During that time, you will not be able to view or post any content on r/taylorswift from June 12th 0:00 EST to June 13th 11:59 EST.

This action isn't something we take lightly.

We understand that Reddit is a company that has to make money in order to offer us a place to be the community that we are - but killing 3rd party apps is not the way to do it.

We are not asking Reddit to provide a paid service for free - we are asking for reasonable pricing for apps that people have come to love and depend on to participate in their communities.

We can't tell you that the blackout will solve the problem, because we simply don't know. But we have to try.

What you can do to support this

While subs going dark is one thing, regular users can help as well.

Reach out to Reddit via the channels available to you: Modmail r/reddit, comment in relevant posts regarding the API changes, submit your comments via the contact forms.

Spread the word about the changes and the consequences where you can. Doesn't have to be on Reddit. The important thing is getting it attention.

Participate in the communities that highlight this issue: r/Save3rdPartyApps, r/apolloapp, r/redditisfun, r/getnarwhal

And finally stay off Reddit completely from June 12th to 14th. The blackout is one thing, but users staying away from the site entirely will send an equally important message.

But don't forget: Don't be a jerk. As frustrating as this is, being toxic or aggressive is not the way to go. Remember the human on the other side of the screen.

I was thinking about this last night for some reason, and I could not think of an example. She mentions drinks a lot, as our girlie loves her wine and booze. But I’m wondering if anyone can think of a time she uses food in a lyric?

Discussion If you could go back and show a pre-debut Taylor one of the songs she has since released, what would it be and why?


My friends and I were talking about this and I thought it was an interesting idea.

You could show her a song that's instrumentally far away from country to shock her with the sound she would go on to have.

You could show her one of her biggest hits.

You could show her a song that's considered to be one of her best.

Or, show her a song that contains information about her life to give her an idea about what path her life will take, or things to be prepared for.

Discussion Lyrics That Made You Go “Wait, What?”


What are some of Taylor’s lyrics that made you do a double-take?

This could mean something that was confusing or something that you didn’t understand.

My example is in Paris—

“Your ex-friend’s sister met someone at a club and he kissed her. Turns out, it was that guy you hooked up with ages ago some wannabe Z-lister…”

It took me a while to puzzle out that Taylor is quoting a friend who was relaying this story to her. This line helped: “Did you see the photos? No, I didn’t, but thanks, though.”

I saw another example from The Lakes—

“Is it romantic how all my elegies eulogize me?”

Talk about needing a poetry class. 😅

Hit me with yours!

News Indiana Man Arrested for Stalking and Threatening "Soul Mate" Taylor Swift



Indiana man charged with stalking, threatening Taylor Swift after trying to meet singer on Eras Tour Natalie Neysa Alund USA TODAY

A 33-year-old Indiana man is facing charges including stalking and intimidation after authorities said he threatened violence after being denied access to his "soulmate" singer Taylor Swift.

Mitchell Taebel of Long Beach was booked into the LaPorte County Jail Friday after being arrested on charges of harassment, stalking, intimidation and invasion of privacy in connection to threats that began in March when the superstar Eras Tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona, LaPorte County Sheriff's Office records show.

"On March 29, 2023, Taebel posted a voice message to his Instagram account that he sent to (Swift) official Instagram account stating that he would happily wear a bomb if he cannot be with his soul mate," a charging document obtained by local newspaper The Times of Northwest Indiana.

The next day, on March 30, Taebel left a message for Swift's father claiming to be her soulmate and on April 5, the warrant obtained continues, police wrote he sent her a picture on Instagram of someone firing a handgun at a gun range, the outlet reported.

Officials said Taebel threatened to "destroy" Swift and her dancers if she performed her song "Vigilante (expletive)" at a show, the outlet reported.

Police say on May 5 Taebel traveled to condominiums in Nashville where Swift has a home and was stopped in the lobby by security after entering through an unsecured door.

Metro Nashville Police Department spokesperson Don Aaron told USA TODAY Taebel showed up at the condo and "said he was a reporter and wanted the staff to let Taylor Swift know he was single," according to the concierge who called police.

Taebel fled the scene before officers arrived, Aaron said, and later that night, he was spotted at Nissan Stadium by security, escorted out, and banned from the venue.

Neither the LaPorte County Sheriff's Office nor a Swift representative could immediately be reached for comment Thursday morning.

OK But why wasn't he arrested in MARCH?

Discussion What song pulls you in with its opening?


I was just thinking about the songs that I never skip when listening to Taylor on shuffle, and how some get me hyped the second I hear the first note.

For me, there is something about “we were in the backseat” opening to Cornelia Street that makes me want to turn up the volume and scream the lyrics!

What songs have that effect on you?

Discussion Do you think the era of Taylor meeting Swifties is gone forever?


As we know, she's not inviting her fans before & after the shows backstage, as well as she doesn't host Secret Sessions anymore. So... do you think it's temporary or she decided to just not do this anymore?

Personally, I think it's for the best - Twitter Swifties sometimes seemed really performative just to catch TN or Taylor's attention and get invited to meet her, imo. Now the tweets seem more casual and chill instead of it being a race and I love it.

Although you know, it's most Swifties' dream to meet her so I'm just wondering if the M&G era is forever gone or do you think she'll start to meet fans again in some time? What do you think?

Discussion What are the most relatable Taylor lyrics?


Driving to work today with Hits Different on repeat and honestly the line “I pictured you with other girls, in love. I threw up on the street” is so insanely relatable.

Nevermind all too well with “so casually cruel in the name of being honest. I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying here”. 🫠😣 Just rip my heart out, stomp on it and get out of my head, Taylor! 😂

Edit: the amount of people saying “you’re on your own kid, you always have been”- hugs. From one swiftie to another. Thanks for all being HERE in this sub💛

Discussion Carolina is the superior version of No Body No Crime


If Carolina was on Folklore or Evermore, I know the song would be so much more appreciated within the framework of Folklorian mythology, than if it stayed a movie track.

I’m gonna be honest, I’ve listened to No Body No Crime maybe 10 times since Evermore’s release. It’s a fine song about a person who’s committed murder, but it’s not Taylor’s best song about a person who’s committed murder.

Carolina is so much more lyrical, clever, and poetic than No Body No Crime. And the fact that it was produced with only period-accurate instruments and recorded by Taylor in a single take, makes this song a standout in her discography. It fits right in line with songs like Cowboy Like Me and Ivy. If Carolina replaced No Body No Crime, it would transform Evermore as an album, and make it a completely skipless album for me.

Obviously we get a lot of context for the song because of the book it’s based on, but Taylor could easily add a brief description like she did for several songs in the album announcement: “A girl from the wilderness of North Carolina, whose fate intertwines with an alleged murder and the town who outcast her.”

TLDR: No Body No Crime is the glitter gel pen to Carolinas quill pen. And Evermore is such a quill pen album.
