Is Taylor Swift's Spotify return part of Katy Perry feud? Twitter says yes

The Bad Blood continues.

Taylor Swift made her music available on Spotify and other streaming services once again late Thursday night as pop rival Katy Perry was releasing her new album Witness. Coincidence?

Although Swift's management team indicated the release is a "thank you" to listeners after her album 1989sold over 10 million copies worldwide, fans aren't buying it. The singer famously boycotted the services in 2015, saying she was "not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators of this music."

Many on social media are speculating it's another part of the long-running feud between the artists, which intensified after Swift released Bad Blood in 2015 and told Rolling Stone it was about another female artist.

Perry’s new single Swish Swish is also believed to be a diss track directed towards the Blank Space singer.

Perry put some rumors to rest last month, confirming on The Late Late Show with James Corden that the feud started with a scuffle over back-up dancers. She also claimed that Swift is responsible for starting (and should end) the squabble.

"There's a situation," she told Corden. "Honestly, it’s really like, she started it and it’s time for her to finish it."

After Swift’s most recent move, however, it doesn’t look like the singer is ready to Shake It Off.

And, of course, the Internet was not shy with their reactions to the latest installment of the Swift vs. Perry drama.

Some Twitter users thought Swift’s level of pettiness was hilarious.

 

Others thought it was a low blow.

And others were just excited to have her music back.

Your move, Katy!
