Ocasio-Cortez Upset About Paying $8 for Verified Account on Twitter…Elon Serves Her Some TRUTH!

Elon Musk is a troll of trolls. He really does have a talent when it comes to hitting the right nerve for people who are just acting like idiots on social media. It’s almost worth him buying Twitter just for that freedom alone to have unlimited access to publishing tweets in response to some of his big critics.

One of these critics is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s going to pick a fight with anyone, but especially Elon Musk because he has “too much money”. The thing about Elon and his money is that he actually does a lot of good with it and is dedicated to making life better for humanity as a whole.

Nevertheless, AOC is going to do what she does best…say stupid things. She did that this week after Elon announced that it was going to cost $8/month in order to have a blue check by your name on Twitter. In response, AOC tweeted, “Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that ‘free speech’ is actually a $8/mo subscription plan.”

Musk’s response back was perfect. Musk responded, “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”

I think that AOC is the type of person who would not pay it just to be defiant. That would be fine with me if that were the case.

He also shared this meme on Twitter:

This one was a gem also,

I think that what Erik Voorhees said is spot on. He tweeted:

Let’s remember that @elonmusk charging $8 for premium Twitter experience means Twitter becomes the product again, instead of you.

And if $8 is too much, you’re free to remain as the product.

Musk replied back with a target emoji signifying that he’s exactly right.

Ocasio-Cortez also got into it with David Sacks, a West Coast-based venture capitalist, who responded to AOC by writing, “Why aren’t [The New York Times, Washington Post, The Atlantic] free? Their billionaire owners should stop being greedy and give us those products for free.”

AOC criticized the response, writing: “Are you seriously equating an app where people are torrenting racial slurs at an accelerated clip with the New York Times?”

“Also fyi, legacy newspapers actually care about verifying newsworthy sources. And they don’t charge their journalists/creators for ‘priority’ placement.”

“As for billionaire ownership of our news sources, that is a legitimate problem! Market concentration of media is a huge issue,” AOC continued. “Hope you’re using your power to stop private equity gutting of local newsrooms while supporting nonprofit and co-op modeled news outlets as well.”

Let’s just admit what this is…hypocrisy. She doesn’t like Musk, she likes liberal media. It’s really that simple.
