Twitter Unveiled the Most-Used Emojis About Taylor Swift Since Friday (And Yes, the Snake is One)

Peeping eyeballs. Snake. Scream-face.

If all of these words screamed "Taylor Swift" to you, congratulations: you might have a future in emoji translation.

According to a tweet from Twitter's senior communications manager Siobhan Murphy, those three emojis -- the peeping eyeballs, snake, and gasping-scream face -- were the most used emojis about Swift since Friday in the midst of a series cryptic snake videos appearing on her otherwise-blank social media accounts. Just six days later, the singer confirmed her upcoming album Reputation on Wednesday (Aug. 23), commencing even more emoji usage.

For comparison, Murphy also replied to her tweet with the most-used emojis in the lead up to Swift's 1989 album, which were a little less enigmatic:

Although the exact meaning of the most recent emoji combination is up to debate, as depending on the viewer's interpretation they could be seen as negative or positive, one thing is clear: Major Taylor Swift news is sure to send emojis a-flying on Twitter.
