Forget Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber; Instagram wouldn’t be the same without Taylor Swift. Miss Swift, Lover of Cats, Giver Of Excellent Advice, Queen of Instagram. With her awesome comments and posts, Taylor is the ruler of everyone’s favorite and most addictive photo-sharing social network. Here’s why:
She takes the time to talk to fans
While many of us know that Swift’s photos are why we’re obsessed with her account, her reciprocal comments are the real reason why we love Taylor on Instagram. It’s always cool to see that fans aren’t talking to an empty void when they @ their favorite celeb. Taylor actually reads her comments, and she responds back.
She gives great advice
One Swiftie posted a selfie and asked Taylor for advice. She wondered what she should do about having a crush on a boy who didn’t feel the same. In turn, Taylor took the time to write a lengthy, heartfelt response, praising her for loving someone based on beauty, calling her selfless. Taylor’s advice to the girl was to love herself and be more introspective. (Which is advice we could all use, quite frankly.)
She doesn’t overload
Taylor only ’grammed 12 times this month, which is what some celebs do in four hours (I’m looking at you, Miley). The sporadic timing makes each photo special, with the added bonus that we don’t have to worry about her clogging our feed (although I wouldn’t mind).
All the kitty cats! Photos of Meredith and Olivia Benson feel like precious little kitty gifts.
The best way to pretend like we’re part of Taylor’s expertly curated roster of celebrity BFFs is to check her Instagram. There! Now we’re friends with Karly Kloss, Lorde, Ellie Goulding, Sarah Hyland, Ed Sheeran and Ellen DeGeneres.
Taylor’s Instagram is basically like a Pinterest board for cuteness inspo. In a creative rut and need ideas for outfits, songs, friend hangouts, vacations, dinner ideas? It’s all there! (Thanks, Tay!)
Taylor Swift? We hereby dub thee Instagram royalty.
