Popular Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok, known for exposing radical gender theories promoted by schools and teachers, has been suspended by Twitter for 12 hours for violating its rules against “hateful conduct.”
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon was the first to report the suspension with a tweet. The vague notice from Twitter, shared by Dillon’s tweet, simply states, “We have determined that this account violated the Twitter rules, specifically for violating our rules against hateful conduct. You many not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”
Twitter just censored @libsoftiktok, locking the account for “hateful conduct.”

As reported by the Post Millennial, the owner of Libs of Tik Tok has recently expressed concern about being banned or censored from Twitter. Just a few weeks ago, the account told its followers, “It’s a matter of time before I get suspended. Never know which post will be my last. If you want to make sure you keep receiving my content, go to the link under my bio and sign up for my email list. I’ll publish some exclusive stuff for email subs, too. Thanks for your support!”

The last tweet posted by the account shows a woman complaining about parents who don’t want teachers instructing children on sexual orientation and gender identity. Libs of Tik Tok captioned the post, “This is what the left really thinks. Listen when they tell you. They want to take your kids to groom and indoctrinate them behind your back.”

Libs of Tik Tok also tells its followers to subscribe to its newsletter just in case Twitter takes action against it. Libs of Tik Tok also has an Instagram account.
The lockout comes after conservative accounts have faced the wrath of the tech company in the past few weeks. Last month, The Babylon Bee was locked out of its Twitter account for the same reason as Libs of Tik Tok after it shared an article jokingly naming Rachel Levine as its “Man of the Year.”
Levine, a biological man, is best known for coming out as a transgender female before being appointed by President Joe Biden to the role of assistant secretary for HHS. Recently, Levine was named one of USA Today’s “Women of the Year.”
The Bee has yet to give in to Twitter’s demands that it delete the tweet, as Dillon said, “We’re not deleting anything. Truth is not hate speech. If the cost of telling the truth is the loss of our Twitter account, then so be it.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson was also locked out of Twitter when he shared screenshots of the notices Twitter sent The Babylon Bee and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk. He, too, was told he must delete the tweet within 12 hours, as The Daily Wire reported.
