Could this be in response to Taylor Swift fans turning the serpent against her on social media?
Ever since Kardashian attempted to exposed Swift last National Snake Day (July 17) for what many saw as being two-faced in a conversation between the pop star and her husband, Kanye West, the reality TV star's fans have flooded Swift's social media with snake emojis. The harassment were even enough was enough that it was used to help inform Instagram's anti-bullying policies and software.
Now, as new music from Swift is imminent with the debut single off her new album Reputation promised for release on Thursday night, it seems as if Kardashian is using that same technology for her own social serpentine security. That is to say, she has blocked the snake emoji from her Instagram comments after Swifties began reciprocating the action.
