Taylor Swift's long-awaited album Reputation was released at midnight on Nov. 10 and fans are wasting no time in sharing their reactions. It's been three years since her last album, and clearly, fans were getting a little antsy without any new Swift tunes to analyze. Swift, of course, did everything she could to drum up the anticipation, and it surely paid off. Reputation has already become the talk of Twitter. As usual, Swift's fans are going crazy for it, and these tweets about Reputation reveal just how amazing they think it is.
Fans of Taylor Swift, often referred to as "Swifties," have a reputation themselves of not holding their composure when it comes to anything having to do with Swift. Fangirling over anything Taylor-related is completely expected, and Swifities are known to make their voices heard. Twitter definitely does not fail us in this regard. The #reputation hashtag is overflowing with fan reactions, and it's clear fans think highly of Swift's latest release.
Perhaps more anticipated than the actual album is the lyrical content of the music. Few things are more satisfying than finally figuring out who a Swift song is about — her lyrics often offer truly personal insight into her already public relationships, and fans can't get enough of the details. Previous songs are said to have referenced Joe Jonas, John Mayer, Katy Perry, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Conner Kennedy, among many others. Fans of Swift have already dug into Reputation a bit, and say that Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston, and Swift's feud with Kim/Kanye are all expected references. As we get through the day, and repetitive listening has led to even more theories, we're sure to get even more juice on Swift's past relationships.
Though it's only a matter of time before the lyric analyses become all the talk regarding Reputation, it's fun to see people's initial reactions over the music itself. And, of course, Twitter is the best place to find these.
Swifities are known for repetitive listening, and Reputation does not disappoint in that regard. Many fans are calling it her best album ever.
