If you’re wondering why #SaltAir is trending on Twitter for the last few hours of July and now August, it’s because of Taylor Swift.
“Salt air” is literally the first two words of Taylor Swift’s 2020 song “August.”
The reason it’s trending is quite simple.
Why is #SaltAir trending?
In fanbases, especially culture-rich ones like Directioners, Barbz, and even Swifties, avid fans always seemed to make a point of buzzing their idols over vague trending keywords — in this case, #SaltAir.
If you’re not a keen Swiftie, you wouldn’t understand this at first sight.
#SaltAir are the first two words of “August” by Taylor Swift, who shared how she remembers the month of August in a heartbreaking way.
For Swifties, the trend is simply to welcome August, with witty jokes and memes to the song – like everyone does when September rolls around, and everyone asks everyone to wake them up at the end of September.
The #SaltAir trending on Twitter, and even on Instagram as the Swifties were seen literally throwing rock salt in the air to welcome the eighth month of the year.

Taylor Swift’s “August” on “Folklore”
Debuting surprise album ‘Folklore’ in July 2020, Taylor Swift released ‘August’ as her ‘eighth track’ – we don’t think that’s a coincidence.
The track debuted at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 5 on the US Hot Rock & Alternative Songs Charts. It was also certified Silver by the British phonographic industry for selling over 200,000 units.
Reviews primarily praised Taylor Swift’s “matured” songwriting skills on “August,” noting how she transitioned to her now third-person confessionals.
“August” comes with the full surprise album “Folklore,” which won the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year in 2021.
Since its release, ‘Folklore’ has broken Spotify’s record for the biggest opening day on streaming services for an album by a woman – The Guinness Book of World Records certified this feat, later surpassed by “Red (Taylor’s Version)”.
Several publications like Time, Billboard, rolling stoneand Los Angeles Times listed the album as the best album of 2020, which has become very special given the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic.
“August” and the entire “Folklore” album are available to stream on Spotify.
