But the tweeting didn't stop there! Michael, 19, sent Taylor a flirty heart-eyed emoji – which then prompted the “Blank Space” songstress to send Michael a belated congratulations to 5SOS on their big night at the AMAs on Nov. 23. Obviously, Michael reciprocated, jokingly noting that Taylor’s performance that evening brought tears to his eyes.
The two musicians then mutually decided to become “Twitter BFFs.”
While we’re pretty sure the Twitter exchange was completely platonic, it’s fun to see this new friendship blossoming!
Breslin, 18, started re-tweeting some of the dreadful messages, leading 5SOS fans to apologize for their behavior. Yesterday, Breslin thanked the band’s fans for recanting the mean-spirited tweets.
While it doesn't seem like Taylor will be writing any Michael Clifford-inspired tunes like Abigail, one rocker who does seem interested in the blonde bombshell is The 1975’s lead singer, Matty Healy. During an interview with Australian radio show Shazam Top 20, Matty confirmed that he and Taylor swapped digits after she attended the band’s show in Los Angeles last month. Matty also hinted at the possibility of a romance.
“We exchanged numbers. Let’s see what happens,” the 25-year-old shared.

We want to hear from you! If you had to choose, would you rather see Taylor dating Matty Healy or Michael Clifford?! Let @Katie_Krause know on Twitter and make sure you include that #ETnow hashtag in your tweet!
