The woman behind the controversial “Libs of TikTok” Twitter account says she has received internal Slack messages from Twitter employees indicating that the social media company is considering banning her.
The “Libs of TikTok” creator, identified by The Washington Post as Shadow Raichick from Brooklyn, New York, published a Substack post Monday that included screenshots of internal chats he had between Twitter employees.
Slack messages, which appear to have been changed on Monday, reportedly show a Twitter employee expressing frustration with management for not banning the “Libs of TikTok” outright.
The “Libs of TikTok” posts TikTok videos of liberals often speaking about gender identity and other hot-button issues that have become a major topic of political and cultural debate.
This account has got more than 1.2 million followers.
,[L]I don’t understand how this account, which exists only to generate violence targeted at marginalized people, is allowed to be posted,” wrote one of the employees.
Another employee responded: “But if we delete this account, we may reduce trust on our platform from users who already think we are biased against conservatives.”
