You may have never heard of “Libs of TikTok” a social media account that has come under fire by the radical left. The account is run by a young woman, who calls out the comments and content of Democrats online.
She was doxed by a journalist, putting her in harm’s way. And, as it turns out, numerous other users on Twitter sent her death threats by the dozens, calling her a “domestic extremists.” Yet, although that violates Twitter’s rules, the left-leaning company has not banned those users.
And now, Elon Musk is blasting them.
The woman behind Libs of TikTok — a popular account that draws attention to progressive content — revealed that she had “received about a dozen death threats after radical leftists accused me of being a domestic terrorist extremist” and noted that Twitter had failed to act upon the threats.
Musk asked why — and one user responded by pointing out that “you can be banned for merely criticizing (not even threatening) woke progressives, but they can send conservatives death threats without any repercussions.”
“A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country,” Musk replied. [Source: Daily Wire]
Musk criticized Twitter for its apparent double stand when dealing with death threats from liberals. After Libs of TikTok pointed out that Twitter has done nothing about death threats she’s received, another user pointed out that conservatives are often banned for criticizing woke progressive. However, Twitter never bans leftists who send death threats to conservative users.
The CEO pointed out that a platform is not really “inclusive or fair” if it is biased against “half the country.”
This is something conservatives have been pointing out for years. But they’ve been ignored by the media and social networks. Liberal-owned networks have become increasingly hostile toward conservative users. But they do nothing when woke or liberal users break their basic rules.
It remains to be seen what Musk intends to do about this. His potential purchase of Twitter has been in limbo for weeks. He put the sale on hold after he demanded Twitter prove only 5% of its users were fake. Some believe it is as high as 20%.
At this point, Musk’s purchase of the social network might fall through. As more stories like this come out, he could pull out of the deal. Where would that leave Twitter? Not in a good place, that’s for sure.
It gradual decline might become very rapid.
