On Tuesday the singer tweeted out two suspicious tweets, asking her fans to follow @veriuser and @lizzard. Hacker collective Lizard Squad is the same group that claimed responsibility for taking down Playstation.
Twitter has taken down the hacker tweets and locked Swift’s account while they investigate what happened. The @lizzard Twitter account threatened to publish nude photos of Swift in exchange for bitcoins. The account has now been suspended.
Swift later tweeted the below in response to the account’s nude photos threat.
PS any hackers saying they have ‘nudes’? Psssh you’d love that wouldn’t you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING.
