What can't she do? The Atlantic credits Taylor Swift & co. with popularizing #squad and #squadgoals




-The article titled "The Summer of the #Squad" goes into detail explaining what a squad is.
-Uses Taylor Swift and her friends as an example of squad goals and how she popularized the term. Also examines her squad dynamics.
-It is as embarrassing as it sounds.
-Includes educational gems like "But the more branded, more Instagram-inflected sense of “squad”— which is generally used as a noun, but which can also be used as a verb (“can’t squad with us”) or a noun adjunct (#squadgoals) or an adjectival modifier (when the whole squad’s there, one is rolling “squad deep”)—is more recent."
-Zero mention of AAVE
