Fans took to Twitter to share their reactions to Tay Tay going M.I.A on social media. The pop singer removed her profile pictures and posts from Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Taylor Swift's social media accounts went dark Friday, sparking speculation that the pop star will be announcing a new album soon.

Some fans speculated yesterday that Swift, whose last album was the best-selling 1989 in 2014, may be clearing out her accounts before releasing new music. But that's not the only reason Swift's fan base is snapping into anticipatory mode.

Considering that the MTV Video Music Awards are only nine days away, fans are also theorizing that Swift will perform her new single at the show.

"She's aiming to release an album this fall", an insider exclusively told Us at the time.

"Is the new era coming or she has been hacked??" one person questioned while sharing images from Swift's accounts.

Before the mass deletion, the singer had been wrapped up in a lawsuit with a radio DJ, David Mueller, who she claimed groped her during a concert meet-and-greet in June 2013.

Are you excited for Taylor Swift's new album? The star's online activity is certainly questionable and her representatives have been contacted for an explanation.

Rumors are swirling that Swift will make an announcement about her sixth studio album, as today also marks the anniversary that she released "Shake It Off" and announced "1989".
