Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) hit Twitter on Wednesday to share her thoughts on new CEO Elon Musk’s plan to charge for the platform’s premium features; “Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that ‘free speech’ is actually a $8/mo subscription plan,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
Musk fired back —a few times.
First, Musk said he appreciated the feedback…
Then, the Twitter sheriff went after AOC’s exorbitant merch store prices.
Finally, Musk shared a meme highlighting that $8 a month really isn’t that much when compared to other expenditures.
