A LOT of people are reposting graphics and edits that are clearly grabbed from Pinterest and Tumblr without proper credit. This is kind of frustrating, because most edits have like hundreds of swiftsends. Not many people seem to understand the concept of not stealing someone’s else work for attention. I really hope @taylornation does something about this because it’s not fair to the artists.
Someone posted “if you voted for Trump, unfollow me now” and there were was an uproar from some users. Also, talking about politics and asking to not associate with racists, homophobes, and fascists is now reduced to ‘drama’. Cringe.
So many people are thirsty for attention. People were posting “reshare if you wish to meet Taylor” and there was one post wherein someone vowed to write every single username who reshares her post and she’d share it with Taylor so they’d get noticed. It had like 4k+ shares so yeah.. good luck with that, hon.
I know a lot of us wants to meet Taylor and hug her but some people on TSL are so… entitled?? Like they feel superior or more deserving than other fans and it’s just… yikes.
People are begging for likes and swiftsends, exchanging gifts for likes and taymojis, demanding for a follow back.
Now with the Pros:
When I started following the right people, it became a much better experience. Like for me now, it’s become a great community. The other night there was #winenight where everyone was posting pictures and having fun with their wines (lol). There was a #storyofus thing wherein everyone was sharing stories about their love and friendship. People are posting about their girlfriends, their boyfriends, their pets… it was beautiful.
People have been sharing stories about how they’ve overcome abusive relationships because of Taylor. People are sharing stories about rising up to her abusers and harassers because of Taylor. People are sharing stories about how they were able to cope with their mental healths because of Taylor. People are sharing stories about finding love and friendships because of Taylor.
Everyone seems to stan Red.
The way some people seem to always be willing to help each other.
There is a girl with Stage 4 cancer with dreams of meeting Taylor and so her mom made a Swift Life account for her in hopes of helping her make her dream come true. People have been giving her posts lots of swiftsends to help.
There is a girl who has a cat who is like Olivia’s sibling or something and people have been helping her with swiftsends so her cat can meet Olivia. <3
The support and love for the LGBT community.
There’s so many of us from different parts of the world and it’s heartwarming to see Taylor bring all of us together.
You’re free to talk about Taylor all you like without being judged or someone raining on your parade with Taylor hate. Because in there, everyone adores Taylor.
I have started this ritual of exercising every friday night by dancing to myself in my room whilst drinking wine. So I dance until I get real tired and in my tipsy mind I think that I did a good job at keeping myself fit.
