Looks like the cryptic queen is at it again! The Taylor Swift puzzle circulating social media is encouraging fans and wordsmiths alike to put their heads together to uncover what the songstress is attempting to tell us. 

In true Taylor fashion, the star took to Twitter with an ambiguous post that has sent everyone into a tailspin. In a short clip, we see a variety of jumbled letters appearing from a burgundy-hued vault, which is undoubtedly hinting at some sort of reveal. 

To add even more mystery to the already secretive message, Taylor captions the post, "*presses post* *cackles maniacally* Level: casually cruel in the name of being honest."

We have so many questions!

Can you decode the Taylor Swift puzzle?

Although some remain baffled by the message, others are already close to cracking the code. The devoted fans realized that this 13x13 word search is likely in reference to Red (Taylor’s Version), which will hit speakers everywhere on November 19th. 

The truly committed Swifties went so far as to write out the word search and share their findings on social media, some of which include: "Phoebe Bridgers," "Ed Sheeran" and "Chris Stapleton." Interesting results—it seems as though a few collabs are potentially on the horizon, and we're anxious to hear 'em. 

More discoveries? "Ten-minute version" and "all too well." Interestingly enough, Taylor's pinned post on Twitter—which details her forthcoming Red (Taylor's Version)—says: "This will be the first time you hear all 30 songs that were meant to go on Red. And hey, one of them is even ten minutes long."

You can't fool us, Taylor. Very nice try, but we're onto you!
