    In case you didn't hear, Taylor Swift is going on a stadium tour called the Eras tour. Considering how big the debut of her most recent album, Midnights, was and the fact that she hasn't gone on tour since 2018, it's safe to say that the ticket demand is through the roof.

    Taylor ended up adding shows in response to the demand, AND only a select group of fans were invited to the Nov. 15 Verified Fan Presale. But that did not stop the chaos.

    TaylorSwiftTix Presale powered by Verified Fan is happening Tuesday. Anyone invited to participate in the presale will also have access to purchase the added event(s) within their selected market. Here’s what to know to get ready to grab @taylorswift13 tickets:

    Even before the presale started in the Eastern Time Zone, people were reporting problems. There have been long wait times, paused queues, error pages, and codes that don't work. Ticketmaster, who's in charge of ticketing for most of the shows, is trying to respond to these issues and delay other presales at the same time.

    I'm literally in the presale queue as I write this, so I've gathered the funniest tweets about this whole situation for your (and my) enjoyment.

    Being stuck in the ticketmaster queue really has you wondering how different your life you be if you never listened to Our Song on the radio in 2006 that one time

    ticketmaster is like “we’re sorry about all the technical problems, this demand was unexpected” as if taylor swift isn’t one of the biggest artists in the galaxy
