"(And) Bad Blood is #1 at pop radio for a 3rd week. THANKS GUYS!" the 25-year-old singer added.
Blank Space was released late last year as the second single off Swift's massively successful fifth studio album 1989.
Its cinematic music video was directed by Joseph Kahn and was made available on Vevo last November.
Swift is currently in the North American leg of her 1989 world tour to support her first pop effort. The tour opened last May and is scheduled to finish in December.
