On Monday, a leaked thread of messages from Twitter’s employees revealed their consideration of de-platforming a conservative account LibsofTikTok, an account that exposes the leftist and liberal agendas of today’s teachers, leaders, and influencers.

During the chat dialog, employees are seen celebrating their successful removal of former President Trump from the platform as they consider the impact of removing the additional account. The employee chat notes that removing the LibofTikTok account may not be in the “fiduciary” interest, Which is likely a referral to the ongoing issue of censorship being exposed by Elon Musk in his bid to purchase the social media giant.
Even Elon Musk chimed in on the conversation, asking Twitter, “Why?”
One employee says, “How dare you bring up fiduciary duties while trans people are literally being wiped off the face of the earth!”
The statement follows the far-left narrative of believing that any criticism or talk that does not explicitly support the transgender agenda is considered violent and inappropriate.
The small group accuses the account in question of “inciting violence” against “marginalized” people, which is a reference to the account’s efforts to expose the recent trend of drag queen shows for kids being hosted by schools and other publicly funded venues.
In the thread, the employees note that the public opinion of Twitter includes the idea that they are “irredeemably biased against conservatives.”
The employees say that they “despise” the activity on the social platform, which they claim “empowers white supremacists” and causes “harmful physical and emotional violence” on members of the LGBTQ community.
The LibsofTikTok account has been the target of several critical attacks from Twitter, The Washington Post, and other tech platforms in recent months.
Those who opposed their message went on a mission to expose the Libs of TikTok owner in the hopes of intimidating her into silence. It culminated with the account’s ower being doxxed by Taylor Lorenz at the Washington Post.
It is another signal that the mainstream media, big tech, and culture have a mission to silence the voices of the American conservative.
A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country

In a tweet late Monday, Musk spoke out against the proposed censorship, saying, “A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country.”
