Having deleted the offending hack Tweets, Perry's account hasn't acknowledged the incident.
We can't help but feel it was a bit of a missed opportunity by @sw4ylol - you've just gained access to the most followed individual on the web, and in this moment of hacking triumph all your creativity dries up.
A diss of a Twitter news source, a poke at Swifty and then some emojis and bad spelling. That's it. No tease of a new album to send fans into a frenzy of activity, no announcement of an engagement or pregnancy to spin the heads of media groups the world over - just some inane chatter and a SoundCloud stunt.
That said, if @sw4ylol is reading this, keep in mind that ShortList is a big fan of your work and we're impressed with your hacking achievements and please, please don't take over our account? Thanks.
