Elon Musk is attempting to make Twitter generate some cash to help pay the inflated $44 billion he paid for it. Aside from firing a lot of workers and insisting his staff comes to work he is imposing an optional charge for big users (I’m guilty) of $8 a month to have a better, fewer ads, more related content experience.
AOC who is a “blue check marked” user, which until now has been free, immediately called him out for charging for free speech.
Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that “free speech” is actually a $8/mo subscription plan— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 2, 2022
Elon came back
My workers are union, have full healthcare + benefits like childcare help, and every one is paid a living wage. Proceeds go to community acts like tutoring underserved kids.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 3, 2022
You’re a union buster with an ego problem who pockets the change from underpaying and mistreating people.
The Twitter verse went mental and it was interesting to see that today’s Left are pissed that Twitter is a privately owned company. Just as it was when Jack Dorsey ran it and shut down President Trump – to massive applause. Dinesh reminded them of the good old days when they defended billionaires operating social media platforms.
If you are a leftist and you find yourself kicked off Twitter—I’m not saying this will happen but merely saying if it does—this would be a good time to remember all your old tweets insisting Twitter is a private company and can do whatever it wants!— Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) October 27, 2022
