A Single Comment From Taylor Swift Would Appear on Their Social Media Account. Here’s What Followed.

Just hours before ringing in 2015, Taylor Swift posted a video online revealing some of the special things she did to surprise her fans during the holidays in 2014.

Footage shows Swift carefully preparing dozens of presents in her New York City apartment to mail to fans — all with handwritten, personalized cards. The gifts had all been personally purchased by the music superstar.

The video explains that after Swift released her new album “1989,” she began “Tayl-lurking” — or using social media to learn “every detail” about her most dedicated fan’s lives.

Swift would then comment on their account with “a single Santa emoji,” indicating they had been selected to receive something special from the star.

“Large FedEx boxes began to appear on the doorsteps of certain fans in what became tenderly referred to as ‘Swiftmas,'” the video says.

In one instance, Swift is seen driving to Connecticut to surprise a fan at her doorsteps and deliver presents for her child.

“They have no idea we’re coming,” the music star said as she drove to the home. “They’re supposed to be home because they think there is a package being dropped off by UPS — but UPS is me.”

“Oh my God!” one of the children says as Swift walked through the front door.

The video concludes highlighting some of the other gifts Swift sent others.

At the time of publication, the footage had amassed more than 50,000 views on YouTube and warmed the hearts of many.

“Wow. Amazing,” one person commented.

“I have tears in my eyes,” echoed another.
