(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Leaked internal messages show Twitter employees are banding together to permanently ban the popular account Libs of TikTok, likely to the overwhelming delight of leftists who have had their multiple hypocrisies exposed in tweets.
The owner of the account revealed the internal conversation in a post on Substack.

The Libs of TikTok Instagram account was “mistakenly” disabled then reinstated, and they have also been suspended from Linktree.
Recently, the account was suspended on Twitter again for reposting fliers of Pride month events, including a thread of “child friendly” drag queen events.
The administrator of the account has received multiple death threats and is being called a “domestic terrorist.”
A leaked conversation between Twitter employees shows that they are willing to go to some lengths to ensure this account is pushed off of the platform.
“I don’t get how this account, which exists solely to generate targeted violence at marginalzed people, continues to be allowed to post,” one employee said.
“If we deplatform this account, we might erode trust in our platform from users who already think we’re irredeemably biased against conservatives,” said another.
“I mean we successfully deplatformed Trump—I don’t think deplatforming Libs of TikTok is going to cause a mass exodus but I guess it may not be in our “fiduciary” interest to enact a ban on a high profile account right now,” another employee replied.
This employee was chastized for not caring enough about trans people, and subsequently apologized.
Twitter employees, who apparently have dubbed themselves as “tweeps,” weighed the pros and cons of a permanent ban on the Libs of TikTok account based on their own personal belief system.
It is unclear if a decision regarding the Libs of TikTok Twitter account was made.
