Playing Taylor Swift's Social Media Hacked; Denies Existence of Nude Pics

Not even Taylor Swift is immune to hackers.

Swift's Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked on Tuesday, when two tweets were sent out to her 51.4 million followers asking them to follow @veriuser and @lizzard, users who claim to have ties to the Lizard Squad -- the group which claims responsibility for shutting down North Korea's internet in December.

Both accounts have since been suspended and the tweets have been deleted, but TMZ reports that the hackers were threatening to post naked shots of Swift.

The 25-year-old singer acknowledged the hack in a Tumblr post and then responded in the best way possible.  For full details on everything that ensued and to see what the hackers posted, watch the video above.

"My Twitter got hacked but don't worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords," she wrote. "Never a dull moment."

Once she regained control of her Twitter account, Taylor channeled her hit "Shake It Off," tweeting, "Cause the hackers gonna hack, hack, hack, hack, hack..."

Taylor also denied the existence of any nude photos, tweeting, "PS any hackers saying they have 'nudes'? Psssh you'd love that wouldn't you! Have fun photoshopping cause you got NOTHING."

This isn't the first time the "Style" singer has denied ever taking nude pictures. In an interview with Rolling Stone in September, she touched on how valuable her privacy is to her.

"There's someone whose entire job it is to figure out things that I don't want the world to see," she said. "Like, I don't take my clothes off in pictures or anything -- I'm very private about that. So it scares me how valuable it would be to get a video of me changing. It's sad to have to look for cameras in dressing rooms and bathrooms. I don't walk around naked with my windows open, because there's a value on that."

Swift is the fourth most followed account on Twitter, behind only President Obama, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.

Hackers have definitely been in the forefront of new lately, when what started out as an ugly security breech for Sony in December turned into a PR nightmare when hackers leaked unflattering personal emails from high-powered executives.
