As we guessed before, Taylor Swift really did come and knock everyone out by surprise. The singer is now the most popular person on Instagram, with 45,665,871 followers and counting.

Maybe this is how it happened. Swifties saw that Kim Kardashian had beaten Beyoncé to become Instagram's most followed user, while Taylor was about half a million followers behind Bey. And then the remaining two million or more Swifties – who had not yet followed Taylor, and you call yourselves Swifties – decided, "Hey, why let it stop at second place?"

This lead to that and before we could forget about Kim's reign, Taylor's number of followers hiked up by two million. That's two million in two weeks, you guys. It's beyond any social media butterfly's wildest dreams, but only if you're not one of the world's richest and most famous celebrities.

We're going to keep a closer watch on these numbers; there's no telling how long Taylor's many photos of her girl squad and cats will keep her at the top of the game. The Internet is just too unpredictable.
