Taylor Lorenz, 2019.

Taylor Lorenz (born October 21, c. 1984) is an American journalist. She is a columnist for The Washington Post. She was previously a technology reporter for The New York Times, The Daily Beast, and Business Insider, and social media editor for the Daily Mail. She is particularly known for covering Internet culture.

Accusation of Doxxing

On April 19, 2022, The Washington Post published an article by Lorenz about the right-wing Twitter account Libs of TikTok and publicized the identity of the account owner as Chaya Raichik. These details were retrieved from early iterations of the Libs of TikTok Twitter account. The online version of the article initially included a link to Raichik's real estate license.

The article proved controversial, with Lorenz accused of doxxing, antisemitism for mentioning Raichik's religion, and hypocrisy for having previously spoken out against online harassment. Raichik herself accused Lorenz of doxxing and told the New York Post that she "will never be silenced". Raichik also accused Lorenz of violating her right to free speech. According to The Times of London, "supporters of Lorenz meanwhile pointed out that Raichik's followers were only too enthusiastic about doxing when it came to teachers being smeared as paedophiles." In a tweet, Lorenz said that her "whole family was doxed again this morning...trolls have now moved on to doxing and stalking any random friends I've tagged on Instagram." YouTuber Tim Pool and The Daily Wire CEO Jeremy Boreing purchased a billboard in Times Square to accuse Lorenz of doxxing. In response, Lorenz called the billboard "so idiotic it's hilarious".

Lorenz self-identifies as a feminist.[1]
