A “secret” Twitter committee moderating high-profile accounts “acknowledged” that Libs of TikTok did not violate the site’s “Hateful Conduct policy,” despite the platform banning the account on numerous occasions for supposedly violating the policy, an internal memo obtained by journalist Bari Weiss shows.
Libs of TikTok was one account that was referred to the Site Integrity Policy, Policy Escalation Support (SIP-PES) group, which “included Head of Legal, Policy, and Trust (Vijaya Gadde), the Global Head of Trust & Safety (Yoel Roth), subsequent CEOs Jack Dorsey and Parag Agrawal, and others,” Weiss tweeted.
“While LTT has not directly engaged in behavior violative of the Hateful Conduct policy, the user has continued targeting individuals/allies/supporters of the LGBTQIA+ community for alleged misconduct,” a memo written in October 2022 following the seventh lockout of the popular account, which Weiss obtained as part of Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files,” said.

In order to justify banning the account, the committee claimed Libs of TikTok’s content allegedly spurred “online harassment,” particularly of “hospitals and medical care providers,” according to Weiss.
Following the Nov. 21, 2022 doxxing of Chaya Raichik, the owner of the Libs of TikTok Twitter account, Twitter claimed that those posting the address had not violated Twitter’s rules, Weiss tweeted.
Journalist Matt Taibbi published documents Friday about Twitter’s actions with regards to an October 2020 report by the New York Post about the contents of a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden. Twitter censored the story, blocking the New York Post from accessing its account, and also suspended other accounts, including the personal account of then-White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, citing a “hacked materials” policy.
Musk fired former FBI lawyer James Baker Tuesday, who was Twitter’s deputy general counsel, following allegations that Baker vetted documents from the original release without Musk’s knowledge. Musk called Baker’s explanation “unconvincing” in a Tuesday tweet, and added that he did not know Baker, who was involved in the FBI’s investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign, worked at Twitter until Sunday.
22. When Raichik told Twitter that her address had been disseminated she says Twitter Support responded with this message: “We reviewed the reported content, and didn’t find it to be in violation of the Twitter rules.” No action was taken. The doxxing tweet is still up. pic.twitter.com/tUeaBP1bS4

“The authors have broad and expanding access to Twitter’s files,” Weiss posted. “The only condition we agreed to was that the material would first be published on Twitter.”
