Libs of Tik Tok responds to second Twitter suspension hours after reinstatement: ‘The left feels threatened’
NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
The popular Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok, which shares videos of left-wing individuals openly expressing their social and political views, was suspended hours after the platform reinstated it from an earlier restriction, the account holder told Fox News on Friday.
The account holder, who told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Thursday about remaining anonymous for protection, said the repeated restrictions prove Libs of Tik Tok is “making a difference” in the public square.
“The good news is that I’m doing something right and making a difference,” the account holder told Fox News in a statement.
“The left obviously feels threatened by my account and as Tucker [Carlson] said last night, ‘it was targeted because once you see what these people are saying, they discredit themselves. ‘”

Prior to Carlson interviewing Libs of Tik Tok about the initial suspension Thursday, he featured several instances of “Libs” the account holder has simply shared video of in the past.
One clip featured an individual who began their soliloquy with the statement, “We want [ed] talk to kids”. Then he expressed thoughts about gender and said, “Sometimes, we’re both, other times we float between.” “
Another individual’s video featured a person with face and body tattoos, piercings, and red glasses, who expressed that they identify as a “threat, a nightmare and a goddess — so please bow down to me. “
The individual later claimed to be a Satanist and therefore “my own god and I worship myself. “
In the offending post from Friday, Libs of Tik Tok linked to a now-censored tweet with the caption, “Apparently a female not wanting to change in front of a male is transphobic. Twitter informed Libs of Tik Tok of the suspension by writing that the account holder could not harass another person or incite others to do so. This includes wishing and hoping for someone to suffer physical harm. “
Libs of Tik Tok appealed to Twitter, but the account holder stated that they remain locked out until the platform responds.
Libs of Tik Tok later said the back-to-back suspensions are not coincidental, and that the Left “has been targeting and mass reporting my account. “
“Twitter of course keeps caving to the mob. But I have done nothing wrong. I won’t give up. “I will not be bullied into silence,” said the account holder.

In a statement to Fox News, the account holder concluded, “Unfortunately for them, I’m never gonna stop. “
Twitter also recently locked self-described “Christian news satire” outlet Babylon Bee’s account for violating a “hateful conduct” policy.
In that case, the Bee posted about former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine, a transgender woman whom President Biden recently tapped to be a four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.
The Bee had given Levine its Man of the Year honors in parody of USA Today’s naming Levine one of its Women of the Year.
