An array of cheeky memes also did the rounds on Twitter, expressing how thrilled and emotional the ‘Swifties’ had become over the new track.

One showed a woman sitting transfixed in front of her computer, paying no attention to her baby who was lying nearby on the floor on fire. ‘NOT RN TAYLOR SWIFT IS RELEASING THIS LOVE (TAYLOR’S VERSION,’ the tweet read.

Another included a picture of a woman weeping in bed while staring at her phone – a representation of the way Taylor’s fans were watching the song.

The popular Eric Andre meme of the comedian fake-shooting someone dead was repurposed to say that Eric was Taylor and his joke victim was the fans.
