Leaked messages reportedly suggest Twitter is banning ‘Libs of TikTok’ account

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.

,[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.”

The same employee said: “I mean we have successfully removed [former President Donald] Trump – I don’t think removing TikTok’s libs will lead to a mass exodus, but I think it may not be in our ‘judicial’ interest to ban high profile accounts right now…”

According to Raichik, the message was leaked by a Twitter employee, who insisted on anonymity.

The employee was responding to a Twitter post on Sunday by Ari Drennan, who works for Media Matters for America, a Democratic Party-aligned watchdog site that tracks conservative media.

“The shadow Raichik of Tik Tok’s Libs is going to kill someone,” Drennan wrote. She attached screenshots showing a post by “Libs of TikTok” about a public library in the San Francisco Bay Area that was hosting a “Drag Queen Story” event for children.

Another employee advocating for the ban responded: “Trans people are being targeted for genocidal violence during Pride Month.”

“I apologize – I was not speaking from my point of view, but was implementing a comment on how leadership has behaved recently,” the employee wrote. “I could have told it better and would be more alert in future messages.”
