They wrote: "Thank you @taylorswift13, what a marvellous reinvention! #imtoosexy #lookwhatyoumademedo (sic)."
'Look What You Made Me Do' has been interpreted by many as a diss track, with sworn enemies Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West and Katy Perry all speculated to be in the firing line.
Lyrics include: "Honey, I rose up from the dead I do it all the time/I got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined I check it once/Then I check it twice" and "The world moves on another day, another drama-drama, but not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma. Maybe I got mine but you'll all get yours."
'Look What You Made Me Do' is the first single from Taylor's sixth album, 'Reputation', which will be released on 10 November.
