Social Media Addict AOC blasts Elon Musk’s $8 Twitter Verification Subscription
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hitting back at Elon Musk’s plan to charge Twitter users a monthly fee to keep their accounts verified.
“Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that “free speech” is actually a $8/mo subscription plan,” the New York Democrat tweeted Tuesday night. Doesn't say if she'll join woke hordes who've vowed to quit site.
According to a Twitter poll, 81 percent of users surveyed said they would not pay to have a verification checkmark
“Twitter’s current lords [and} peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bulls—,” Musk said, noting that price would be adjusted by country.
Those who pay will also get priority in replies, mentions and search, the ability to post long videos and audio and see half as many ads.
'Power to the people! Blue for $8/[month].'
