Elon Musk originally announced that he wanted to charge subscriptions of $20 dollars a month for a verified account with that coveted blue check on Twitter after his takeover of the company.

But then Stephen King called him out.

So Musk immediately set the new price point at $8 a month.

Enter the always wondrous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to rattle Musk's cage.

Musk angrily tweeted this response.

Musk responded like an angry, entitled brat after getting embarrassed by AOC.

Your free speech is so cute, Ms. Cortez, but pay up or else b*tch.

Billionaires continue to try and destroy this country.

And for what?


More money than they could ever spend in ten lifetimes?

That is how it's done.
