Twitter is going into meltdown over Miley Cyrus' wild NSFW tweet about Taylor Swift

Oh, Miley Cyrus. Whatever will you think of next?

If you're of a certain age, you'll notice that the 26-year-old has gone through quite a bit in her public life over the last decade or so. The Disney Channel Days of Hannah Montana have long since faded into the past, and we've also survived the Wrecking Ball/grinding on Robin Thicke days.

That was then, and this is now.

Recently, Miley seems to to have mellowed out somewhat. That culminated in her getting married to Hemsworth late last year, in a low-key, intimate ceremony. It was really adorable, from the photos she shared on Instagram.

But now that she's a married woman, we seem to have progressed to the next stage of Miley Cyrus: wild, outspoken soundbite Miley Cyrus. Her latest subject? None other than fellow pop star Taylor Swift, who was the feature of a pretty raunchy Twitter meme, which sent the internet into meltdown.

So, what exactly was the tweet that got the internet's collective heart all a-flutter? Let's set the scene, shall we? It's Friday, it's International Women's Day; and as a proud woman as well as a queer person, Miley Cyrus is deep in thought as to the perfect post for the occasion.

Scratching her head for a second, an idea comes to her; and using footage of Taylor Swift as well as herself from the aforementioned Robin Thicke twerking incident (which I assume she has ready for use at a moment's notice), she comes up with this GIF:

"It’s Women’s Day! 😻 To celebrate, will you Top like Taylor? Or Twerk like Miley? Please Answer," Miley wrote in her post, and answer the internet did. But not many people decided they were going to "twerk" or "top" like either of the pop stars featured in that GIF; instead, people were a little bit confused.

"Now I've seen everything," wrote @MyBlackKiss, and having lived vividly through the Wrecking Ball era, I kind of have to agree with this particular Twitter user. "Ok who hacked her," said @SHADESOFVIRGO, more in hope than anything, but that's just wishful thinking: this is all Miley's doing, folks.

Then came the jokes about Tree; Taylor Swift's poor, overworked publicist, who at this point possibly needs a pay rise or a holiday. Maybe even both.

Not everyone was dismayed or confused, though. Posting a pic of the two together, @gleek_2018 simply wrote "Queens", while @godiscyrus took the moment to ask for a collaboration, which actually wouldn't be a terrible idea, I suppose.

Either way, Taylor Swift is yet to respond to Miley Cyrus' latest tweet, but you can be sure that she's well aware of it by this point. How will she take the whole thing? It'll be interesting to see.
