“Is it just me or does Taylor Swift always seems likes she’s whining about something new every-time she’s gonna drop an album? #WorIsMeMarketing“

Ticketing giants Ticketmaster had undertaken a ruthless journey to dominance which has caused endless controversy. Fans were trying to purchase seats for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, which went on sale this morning. However, the fans were furious at Ticketmaster for long waits, technical glitches and outright site crashes.
Ticketmaster addressed the matter as “intermittent issues with the site.” Potential ticket buyers complained of waiting hours with little to show for it. Others said they were being automatically logged out without being allowed to complete their purchases.
Rolling Stone reported that “As of 11 a.m. on Tuesday, the site was experiencing major issues, with fans either completely logged out or in a queue 2,000-plus people strong that appeared frozen.”
House Rep. Alexandra Oscasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter this morning, “Daily reminder that Ticketmaster is a monopoly, it’s [sic] merger with LiveNation should never have been approved, and they need to be reigned in. Break them up.”
Ticketmaster apologised to Taylor Swift and her fans after she called them out for their haphazard presale in a statement online.
“We strive to make ticket buying as easy as possible for fans, but that hasn’t been the case for many people trying to buy tickets for Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour,” Ticketmaster prefaced in the statement. “First, we want to apologise to Taylor and all of her fans — especially those who had a terrible experience trying to purchase tickets.”
