Michael kicked things off by tweeting: "I'm so late on the shake it off hype"
Taylor responded: "@Michael5SOS Well I was late retweeting you. Call it even?"
Michael was definitely loving the attention, responding with a heart-eyed cat emoji.
The two followed up by sharing their mutual love for one another, as Taylor wrote a congrats on 5SOS winning an AMA. Then Michael fangirled all over the place, paying Tay a little love over her "Blank Space" performance at the awards show.
And now Taylor and Michael are BFFs on Twitter, according to her!
UPDATE: Michael is all aboard the BFF train with Taylor (he'd be crazy not to hop on!), tweeting later: "@taylorswift13 alright fine I'm in"
