London: A new Twitter account that re-imagines Taylor Swift as a feminist has amassed 80,000 followers in six days.

The account, FeministTaylorSwift (@feministtswift), is the brainchild of self-proclaimed feminist and Taylor Swift fan Clara Beyer, who is the senior linguistics major at Brown University, ABC News reported.

She studied the pop star`s lyrics with a feminist slant while addressing issues of sexism, gender roles and female empowerment.

"We`re happy, free, confused, and oppressed by the patriarchy at the same time / It`s miserable and magical / Oh yeah!" is one of Beyer`s rewrites.

Beyer said that she is not the only one who enjoys Swifts`s music but feels uncomfortable with some of the messages.

She launched the Twitter account on June 12.
