Due to his most recent move to charge Twitter users $8 a month to get a verified account, Elon Musk is currently dealing with opposition. However, Musk is making sure, though, that he has an epic retort for every troll and critic.

The new CEO of Twitter and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, are still reportedly at odds. She said today that her account ‘conveniently’ stopped working after she criticized him for wanting to charge $8 per month for a blue tick.

After an altercation with Elon Musk on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez claimed she was “conveniently” experiencing problems with her Twitter account. The congressman started out by criticizing Musk’s contentious proposal to charge customers for platform authentication.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that the billionaire was attempting to sell the idea that “free speech” at an $8/month subscription plan. Musk reportedly responded by saying, “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”

The platform uses the blue check mark to indicate when a user has been confirmed as authentic. There are almost 400,000 verified users on Twitter, including AOC and Musk, as well as famous people, journalists, brands, and politicians.

The two personalities proceeded to argue. At one point, Musk posted a screenshot of the lawmaker’s merchandise store with the price of a $58 hoodie marked. Musk responded by being referred to as a union buster with an ego issue by Ocasio-Cortez. Not just Ocasio-Cortez has expressed dissatisfaction with some of Musk’s corporate decisions. Plans to charge verified Twitter users for blue ticks have drawn criticism from public personalities, including Stephen King.

Others responded to Musk by pointing out that AOC sells the clothing as a way to earn money for her political campaigning and tweeting images of Tesla clothing, including hoodies, being sold for prices higher than AOC’s.

By imposing a fee on Twitter users who wish to maintain their verification badge, the billionaire hopes to fulfill his vow to render the social media platform profitable. Twitter will get a “paywall bypass,” and social media stars will also get a secondary heading like politicians if all users who currently have a blue tick decide to pay the $8 monthly fee. This would bring in $3.2 million per month and $38.4 million annually for Twitter.
