(CBrief) – Elon Musk is trolling liberals on Twitter and they are going insane.
The new Twitter CEO took a swipe at Democrat New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when she said “Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that ‘free speech’ is actually an $8/mo subscription plan”.
The CEO gave her a simple response: “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”

Yahoo Finance reported:
Elon Musk has doubled down on Twitter’s proposed new $8-per-month fee for users who want to keep their blue verified checkmark.
The billionaire, who closed the $44 billion deal for the social media platform last week, announced on Tuesday that Twitter’s new verification system would cost $8 per month. This sparked controversy among some verified Twitter users who were unhappy at the news that they’d have to start paying for the blue tick.
Despite the criticism, Musk reiterated his plans later in the day.
“To all complainers, please continue complaining, but it will cost $8,” he tweeted.
