Taylor Swift vs Google: Is the power of Taylor Swift’s fans stronger than the power of Google’s algorithms? It’s a puzzle to think about. Swift, a pop star, is starting an ambitious project to re-record her earlier records under the name “Taylor’s Version,” which will include songs never released. And she’s adding her signature “Easter eggs,” which are fun treats for her loyal fans hidden in plain sight.
Swift, who has always been bold and creative, has made challenging puzzles to figure out the names of these secret gems. But she didn’t solve this puzzle by herself. She worked with Google on a set of online puzzles to promote her upcoming album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version).”
So, how does this combination of a famous pop star and a big tech company work? Just put “Taylor Swift” into the search bar (which Swifties call the “Blank Space”), click on the blue vault icon, and try one of the 89-word puzzles (a nod to “1989 (Taylor’s Version)”). It will be challenging since Swifties worldwide have to solve an incredible 33 million problems to get to the vault track titles.
Swift gave this clever team-up her stamp of approval on her verified social media accounts. The idea was popular but almost so popular that it broke the internet. Swifties filled the system with excitement, which caused some short-term problems.
Even in a funny way, Swift and Google worked well together. Google tweeted a message that was meant to be reassuring. It said that the vault may be full but not empty, using clever Swift song names as metaphors. It was a clever nod to the fact that they had worked together and were aware of the fan excitement they had caused.
Thank goodness Google was able to get its digital act together and make Swifties happy because they love puzzles. The message was clear: They got through the difficult woods, built bridges, broke codes, and opened the vault for waiting fans.
Taylor Swift has had a big year, from her highly successful “Eras Tour” to her MTV VMA wins and rumors about her love life. She has continued to show that she is a musical powerhouse and a master at connecting with her fans in fun and creative ways. The question still stands: Is Taylor Swift stronger than Google? Maybe she is in the hearts of Swifties.
