Concert bombing prompts Taylor Swift to break Twitter silence

'I'm sending all my love,' Berks native tweeted

Many celebrities have taken to Twitter to pay tribute and express their sympathy in the wake of a terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, on Monday.

Among them is Berks County native and fellow pop star Taylor Swift, who posted to the social media site for the first time since January 29.

"My thoughts, prayers and tears for all those affected by the Manchester tragedy tonight," Swift said in her tweet. "I'm sending all my love."

Grande herself responded on Twitter in the hours after the attack, writing that she was "broken" and didn't "have words."



Grande's management put out a lengthier statement, saying "words can not express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack."

The suicide bombing left 22 people dead and dozens injured. ISIS has claimed responsibility.

Grande, who was not physically harmed by the explosion, has suspended her "Dangerous Woman" tour. The Manchester concert was to be her first of three concerts in the UK. She performed in Philadelphia in March.
