Announcement Reddit Blackout to support people with disability


Hi everyone, I saw this posted on another sub and was wondering what people’s thoughts are on joining in? These changes will make it really hard for people with disability to access Reddit :( something that I feel very strongly about. Would love to see our inclusive Swiftie community join in.

Edit: wow the support for this warms my heart <3 would be fantastic if we could do this, I think it will be up to the mods to lock/ make this sub private on the day. Will leave it up to the mods to make the time/ etc official too. Thank you everyone ❤️❤️

r/taylorswift is joining the Reddit blackout from June 12th to protest the planned API changes that will kill 3rd party apps and Reddit access for vision impaired people

Hey r/taylorswift

Recently Reddit Inc has announced changes to their API which, if enacted, will shut down many, if not all, 3rd party apps that a large number of Redditors use to access and enjoy their favourite communities. Critically, this also completely guts access to Reddit for visually impaired people as screen readers are 3rd party apps.

One of the most critical changes to the API is that it is moving from a free to a paid model, resulting in expenses that developers of 3rd party apps simply cannot afford. To put the price change in to context, Apollo, one of the most popular 3rd party apps for Reddit, is looking at a cost of US$1.7 million per month to continue operating. That's a cost of US$12,000 per 50 million API requests. In contrast, Apollo pays Imgur US$166 for every 50 million API calls.

This means popular apps like Apollo, Reddit Is Fun, Narwhal and many more will have to shut down, permanently.

Even if you're not using a 3rd party app yourself, these changes are likely to impact the communities you enjoy as well, with the vast majority of moderation teams relying on 3rd party or self-made tools, that utilise Reddit's API.

Additionally, if you are a member of a community that uses bots - those will also cease to function.

And on top of all that, it paints a bleak picture of what is to come for those of us who use other tools, like Reddit Enhancement Suite and old.reddit.com.

Here's a little TLDR on why this is important.

So what are we planning?

On June 12th, we and a growing number of other subs - large and small - will go dark. During that time, you will not be able to view or post any content on r/taylorswift from June 12th 0:00 EST to June 13th 11:59 EST.

This action isn't something we take lightly.

We understand that Reddit is a company that has to make money in order to offer us a place to be the community that we are - but killing 3rd party apps is not the way to do it.

We are not asking Reddit to provide a paid service for free - we are asking for reasonable pricing for apps that people have come to love and depend on to participate in their communities.

We can't tell you that the blackout will solve the problem, because we simply don't know. But we have to try.

What you can do to support this

While subs going dark is one thing, regular users can help as well.

Reach out to Reddit via the channels available to you: Modmail r/reddit, comment in relevant posts regarding the API changes, submit your comments via the contact forms.

Spread the word about the changes and the consequences where you can. Doesn't have to be on Reddit. The important thing is getting it attention.

Participate in the communities that highlight this issue: r/Save3rdPartyApps, r/apolloapp, r/redditisfun, r/getnarwhal

And finally stay off Reddit completely from June 12th to 14th. The blackout is one thing, but users staying away from the site entirely will send an equally important message.

But don't forget: Don't be a jerk. As frustrating as this is, being toxic or aggressive is not the way to go. Remember the human on the other side of the screen.

Hey friends! Getting so psyched for my Eras show on June 23rd! This will be my third show with my husband (Reputation and 1989) and was a STRUGGLE to get tickets….but we did!

I love RED and that was totally the first album I bought. I loved the 22 video and decided to emulate that look. Cut the shirt into a muscle tee, got red shorts, red socks, red bicep bands and glasses. I got red body glitter too which I was afraid to test out bahaha.

I’m beyond excited for this show ESPECIALLY cause it’s Pride Weekend ❤️🏳️‍🌈❤️

Discussion Saddest Taylor Swift lyrics that pierces your heart right through?


For me it's, 1) I'm on a bench in Coney Island, "wondering where did my baby go?". 2) I made you my temple, my mural, my sky. 3) I gave so many signs. 4) Clear blue waters high tide came and brought you in, skies grew darker currents swept you out again 😭. 5) So I'll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep And I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breath And I'll keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are 6) If I can't relate to you anymore, then who am I related to? And if this is the long haul, how'd we get here so soon? 7) And when I walked up to the podium.... I think that I forgot to say your name 😭 8) Just between us, did the love affair maim you too? 9) I'm getting older, but your lovers stay my age. 10) I know my love should be celebrated, but you tolerate it. 😭💔

Discussion Possibly a stupid question: Has Taylor ever mentioned food in a song?


I was thinking about this last night for some reason, and I could not think of an example. She mentions drinks a lot, as our girlie loves her wine and booze. But I’m wondering if anyone can think of a time she uses food in a lyric?

Discussion Things you think Taylor will never do in her career


Obviously Taylor Swift has accomplished a huge number of things in the past 17(?) years of her career. My question is, what are things that you believe she will never CHOOSE to do? Not things that you don’t believe she’s capable of accomplishing, but things she won’t try because she just doesn’t want to or doesn’t think it’s a good career move.

This is kind of random, but last night as my 3.5 year old was watching the Sesame Street 50th anniversary special for the 11th time, I found myself thinking about whether Taylor has ever been on Sesame Street (she has not) and whether she ever would. It feels like most musical performers who go on Sesame Street do so either early in their careers when they’re just starting to get famous (Billie Eilish, Hailee Steinfeld, Destiny’s Child, the Chicks, Feist) or once they’re old enough to have kids who want to watch Sesame Street (Dave Grohl in season 50), or Sesame Street is just an integral part of their upbringing and they jump at the chance to be a part of it. And idk about you guys, but Taylor doesn’t seem like a Sesame Street girlie to me. I could be wrong though!

Anyway, what are your thoughts about things she won’t attempt, for whatever reason? I’m not talking about collaborators she won’t work with, that’s been discussed fairly recently. This is more things like musical styles she won’t write in, cultural moments that she wouldn’t want to be a part of, etc. I also don’t think that we will see her perform at a US presidential inauguration, for example. I checked the tired topics list and I hope this doesn’t count! Thanks for reading!

Discussion If you could go back and show a pre-debut Taylor one of the songs she has since released, what would it be and why?


My friends and I were talking about this and I thought it was an interesting idea.

You could show her a song that's instrumentally far away from country to shock her with the sound she would go on to have.

You could show her one of her biggest hits.

You could show her a song that's considered to be one of her best.

Or, show her a song that contains information about her life to give her an idea about what path her life will take, or things to be prepared for.

Discussion The Friendship Bracelet Concept is Brilliant


I'm not sure if Taylor anticipated what would follow when she put the line "and make the friendship bracelets" into You're on Your Own Kid, but the results are spectacular. They seem to be the centerpiece of the good vibes and family spirit emanating through her concert experience. Many people have said the best thing about the concert is the wonderful friendliness of everyone they met.

I wonder if Taylor or Tree or some other inspired member of Taylor's marketing team came up with this idea...and if they promoted it beyond just the lyrics in the song. Or maybe one or more members of the Swiftie universe emphasized the idea somewhere and it mushroomed.

It is so good for positive feelings toward other people to be emphasized in this society. Heaven knows we can use it!

Discussion Lyrics That Made You Go “Wait, What?”


What are some of Taylor’s lyrics that made you do a double-take?

This could mean something that was confusing or something that you didn’t understand.

My example is in Paris—

“Your ex-friend’s sister met someone at a club and he kissed her. Turns out, it was that guy you hooked up with ages ago some wannabe Z-lister…”

It took me a while to puzzle out that Taylor is quoting a friend who was relaying this story to her. This line helped: “Did you see the photos? No, I didn’t, but thanks, though.”

I saw another example from The Lakes—

“Is it romantic how all my elegies eulogize me?”

Talk about needing a poetry class. 😅

Hit me with yours!
