There’s no question Taylor Swift has been taking a LOT of heat on social media after her very public blow-up with Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West.

After recent backlash against the pop star got to a fever pitch, observant fans started wondering why it appeared that thousands of comments on her IG posts were deleted.

First, there were all the snake-related comments and emojis after Kim posted:

Suddenly, Taylor’s IG account seemed to have gotten the St. Patrick treatment as there were no snakes to be found…

Further, they were curious as to why the hashtag #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty, which had been trending on Twitter for a while, suddenly completely disappeared from the list of trending topics, not to mention

Now, we are learning that the users’ concerns about Swift were right, at least in part.

The Sun reports that Instagram is teaming up with a number of high-profile accounts to produce a new tool that can help prevent abusive comments.

We don’t know if Taylor specifically is one of those accounts, but considering there’s been a mass-deletion of snake emojis in her comments, it’s safe to say her account is probably involved.

An IG rep explained:

“We’re always looking for ways to help people have a positive experience with comments. We’re currently focused on providing tools to improve accounts with the most high-volume comment threads.”

Now Twitter, on the other hand, isn’t so cut and dry.

Their team claims that the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty hashtag was NOT manually removed from trending topics, instead referring to their site for comment about the incident:

“Trending topics are determined by an algorithm measuring velocity of Tweets about a topic, not overall popularity … Trends are determined by an algorithm and, by default, are tailored for you based on who you follow and your location. This algorithm identifies topics that are popular now, rather than topics that have been popular for a while or on a daily basis, to help you discover the hottest emerging topics of discussion on Twitter that matter most to you.”

So there you have it, apparently.
