The day of reckoning has arrived for Washington Post columnist Taylor Lorenz whose Twitter account was suspended on Saturday, removing one of the most toxic voices of modern day “journalism” from the social media platform.
Lorenz, who has a history of being a cruel and vicious doxxer, was exiled days after the tech giant announced a new policy on doxxing, the left’s most effective weapon in terrorizing political adversaries, a practice that until Elon Musk’s takeover, was commonplace on Twitter.
The entitled cry-bully must have seen it coming after she scrubbed her account after the crackdown on doxxing which resulted in the brief suspension of a handful of reporters, leftist influencer Aaron Rupar and pathetic crank Keith Olbermann.
The news of Lorenz’s suspension was announced by the popular Libs of TikTok account, the owner of which was exposed to threats to her physical safety after being doxxed by the WaPo’s technology and online culture writer.

Lorenz reacted to her suspension like a true diva, playing the victim in a video wearing a formal dress and an obviously forced smile while appearing to choke back tears as she slammed Musk and claimed that she was given the boot for merely asking him a question.

In a Substack post, Lorenz claimed that she discovered she had been suspended after she reached out to the new “Chief Twit” for comment for a story – likely a hit piece – that she was writing.
“When I went to log in and see if he had responded to our query, I was suspended. I received zero communication from the company on why I was suspended or what terms I violated,” she wrote.
“I have been on Twitter since 2010 and have run Twitter account for major media brands including Verizon, WordPress, The Daily Mail, People magazine, The Hill, and dozens more. Never once in my 13 year career in social media have I received a single terms of service or community guidelines violation, for my personal account or any account that I’ve run,” whined the cry-bully who has repeatedly used her position at prominent media outlets to harass political adversaries.
With it being hard to imagine a character less deserving of sympathy than Lorenz, Twitter users were unsympathetic if not elated at her comeuppance at the hand of Musk, the left’s new great Satan.
Taylor Lorenz seems to take offense at the idea that Elon Musk might be a normal person who doesn’t do billionaire stuff like hosting parties and inviting fake friends over to listen to a band. https://t.co/CLBwh2X7tH

When Taylor Lorenz comes back in a few days, get ready for her describing her Twitter jail experience as if she were Nelson Mandela.

What was the point of suspending Taylor Lorenz? She'd already blocked 99% of the world.

Taylor Lorenz was suspended because she is a serial doxxer. Just because she started deleting all her tweets doesn't mean she gets a pass. Good on Elon for permanently banning her.

If Taylor Lorenz doesn’t know why she got banned, then why did she delete all her tweets right before it happened?

It’s gonna be a media freak fest.
Nobody is going to care why Taylor Lorenz was suspended, despite her doxxing history.
This suspension will be seen as a hard elbow inside the paint when Twitterati’s star player was going for an ungainly dunk.

Taylor Lorenz is the living embodiment of everything that is bad about social media. Her entire purpose is to gather mobs to ruin the lives of people who disagree with the current progressive shibboleth. She should be banned from the internet entirely. https://t.co/rrJ1a3UV8T

Musk made it clear that when during a Thursday chat on Twitter Spaces that “journalists” were not special and would subject to the same rules as everyone else.

“Yeah, so I am sure that for everyone who has been doxxed would agree, sharing real-time information about someone’s location is inappropriate and I think everyone on this call would not like that to be done to them,” Musk told the reporters.
“There’s not going to be any distinction in the future between journalists or so-called journalists and regular people,” he added. “Everyone’s going to be treated the same.”
“You’re not special because you’re a journalist,” Musk said. “So no special treatment. You dox, you get suspended. End of story.”
