Crowd Surf cofounder Cassie Petrey addressed the rumors — many of which are outlined in a lengthy Jan. 22 Twitter thread by fan account @BritneyHiatus. Alleging that she had seen "a lot of inaccurate theories out there" about how the pop superstar's social media operates, Petrey claimed at the time, "Britney creates her own posts and writes her own captions for Instagram." Petrey also pointed out that Spears is the one who requests any edits to her videos, which are then carried out by her social media team, adding that the "Sometimes" songstress has the final say on whether "she wants to post it or not."
