On Tuesday, a back-and-forth started between House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and new Twitter Owner Elon Musk. After criticizing Musk’s monetization plan for the platform the billionaire replied to AOC’s complaint with the simple ”Now Pay $8.”

Elon announced his plan to institute an $8 subscription to be verified and unlock features on the platform, a plan that has caused much discussion and uproar.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to this $8 charge, “Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that ‘free speech’ is actually a $8/mo subscription plan.”

Musk responded in a viral clap-back that received over a million likes with “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”

AOC has now doubled down, claiming the Tesla billionaire is limiting her personal accounts, something people are calling a conspiracy theory.

She took to social media video to explain her side saying, “I was at a community event in the Bronx in Coop City. And when I get home, I see a text from my team saying, ‘Hey, let me know if you need any help with this Elon stuff.’ And I was like, what? “

“So I pulled my Twitter app, and it’s like gone. Like when you pull up your mentions and stuff like that, it’s just like literally like a blank screen, totally gone. And I was like, ‘Hm, that’s weird.’ So it turns out, we got under a certain little billionaire’s skin,” AOC claimed.

Elon tweeted his $8 subscription plan in a thread, describing his reasoning and the plans perks below

“Twitter’s current lords & peasants system for who has or doesn’t have a blue checkmark is bullshit. 

Power to the people! Blue for $8/month.

Price adjusted by country proportionate to purchasing power parity”

“You will also get:

– Priority in replies, mentions & search, which is essential to defeat spam/scam

– Ability to post long video & audio

– Half as many ads”

“And paywall bypass for publishers willing to work with us

This will also give Twitter a revenue stream to reward content creators

There will be a secondary tag below the name for someone who is a public figure, which is already the case for politicians”
