The Libs of TikTok Twitter account is approaching one million followers after Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz exposed her identity in a hit piece. The account has gained more than 300,000 followers since the piece was released earlier this week.
Libs of TikTok has become wildly popular for simply acting as a mirror for leftist insanity. The account shares videos, tweets and other documents of anything from liberals naming their cat after Dr. Anthony Fauci to sexual content being taught to kindergartners.
The account has been instrumental in shining a light on leftist indoctrination efforts in public schools, which no doubt led to the Lorenz hit piece.
Lorenz bragged about “exposing” the identity of the account’s anonymous creator in a tweet last week, then proceeded to do just that the following morning. Lorenz messaged the account owner and told her she was being “implicated” in “starting a hate campaign against LBGTQ people.”
The Washington Post reporter even contacted the Libs of TikTok creator’s relatives in the effort to “expose” her.

Although Libs of TikTok merely posts what leftists in schools have said themselves, the radical left has routinely labeled backlash over their own statements as “hate speech” that can only be remedied with aggressive censorship and politically motivated persecution.
The attempt from the Washington Post to silence the account now appears to have backfired spectacularly, as Libs of TikTok has gained over 300,000 followers since the Lorenz hit piece was released. It is now just 60,000 followers short of one million.
Ron Coleman, who is giving legal counsel to the account creator, has aggressively pushed back on falsehoods spread about the account creator in the aftermath of the story. After a fake tweet falsely attributed to Libs of TikTok was circulated by left-wing influencer account, Coleman threatened legal action if it was not removed. The tweet, which falsely accused the creator of defending pedophilia, was promptly deleted by all sizable accounts who had posted it.
Our firm has represented @libsoftiktok for some time.
The phony “tweet” shown below is false and defamatory. Our client never tweeted it.
Legal action is being contemplated. Anyone with information concerning the creator of this fake tweet is invited to contact me. pic.twitter.com/4DRZbGcCrX

“I think that a-lot of people wanted to bring me down, they wanted to intimidate me into silence, and unfortunately for them that’s just never gonna happen,” the Libs of TikTok creator told Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.
