'YOUR FEEDBACK IS APPRECIATED —NOW PAY $8': Musk Torches AOC for Twitter Complaints

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.03.22

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) got into a Twitter spat with new CEO Elon Musk after she suggested that Musk was charging money for free speech; she took issue with the possibility of a subscription plan.

“Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that ‘free speech’ is actually a $8/mo subscription plan,” AOC tweeted at the start of the week.

Musk responded, “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”

The billionaire also reminded AOC that sweatshirts in her online merchandise shop go for $58 a pop.

And then, of course, he dropped a meme.

AOC then accused Musk of interfering with her Twitter account functionality.

“Also my Twitter mentions/notifications conveniently aren’t working tonight, so I was informed via text that I seem to have gotten under a certain billionaire’s skin,” she claimed. “Just a reminder that money will never buy your way out of insecurity, folks.”

“One guy’s business plan for a $44 billion over-leveraged purchase is apparently to run around and individually ask people for $8,” she continued. “Remember that next time you question yourself or your qualifications.”

From The Daily Wire:

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.”
