Remember how mom always said “Don’t air your dirty laundry?” Well, this wise advice from mom has taken on new meaning in this age of Social Media. First of all why do we feel the need to post intimate details on such a public outlet as the internet?

Second, why do we post these intimate details on a network that is so notorious for falling into the grubby hands of people with less than honorable intentions? Because we do, and some celebrities have found out the hard way that this isn’t a great idea.

I’m pretty safe, I doubt there are people out there just itching to hack into my social media accounts, however, here are some of the more famous celebrities that haven’t been so lucky.

Taylor Swift

While the hackers keep hack, hack, hacking, Taylor is just shaking it off. Recently pop star Taylor Swift said her Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked, however, the mischievous posts were quickly removed from the social media services.

“My Twitter got hacked but don’t worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords,” said a statement posted on Swift’s personal Tumblr page. Makes you wonder if that message was hacked as well. What can we believe anymore?

“Never a dull moment,” the statement added right before another posting said that Swift’s Instagram account has been hacked as well. See what I mean!

Celebrities have often been the targets of hackers who have posted personal and embarrassing information online in previous high-profile hacks, as if some celebrities aren’t able to post enough embarrassing info themselves.

However, thank goodness, the Grammy winning singer was back to tweeting two hours after the hacking, in which users were asked to follow two accounts that Twitter now lists as suspended.

“Cause the hackers gonna hack, hack, hack, hack, hack…,” Swift humorously tweeted.

The recent hacking of Swift’s accounts came as Facebook, the world’s largest social network, recently experienced a wide outage. A hacker group sought to claim responsibility, but the company said the outage was its own fault.
