On Friday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk accused Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Dem-NY) of flirting with him as she got angry about the billionaire controlling a major communication platform.
“Stop hitting on me; I’m really shy,” Musk responded with a blushing emoji.
In her first message, Ocasio-Cortez stated that she was “tired of having to worry about an explosion of hate crimes because a wealthy individual with an ego problem has control over a major communication platform and distorts it due to Peter Thiel or Tucker Carlson taking him out to dinner and making him feel special.”
On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez posted a screenshot of their exchange with what seemed to be her response to Musk, which said, “I was referring to Zuckerberg. That’s fine.”
When a user noted that she deleted the tweet, AOC claimed that she tried not to provide “people with big ego complexes” attention.
Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson of Fox News praised Musk’s purchase on Twitter.
“Elon Musk believes in free speech unlike Facebook, Google, Apple, Amazon’s CEOs. He believes everyone should be allowed to speak and express their ideas, including those who disagree with him.”
“At this stage, you have no choice but to put your faith in a quirky billionaire’s good intentions. There is simply no alternative because no one else is offering help. So, with Elon Musk, we’ll see how it turns out; nevertheless, his purchase of Twitter is the most significant political development since Trump’s election in 2016. It is certainly the most threatening danger to this nation’s crooked and ineffective leadership.”
Meanwhile, as a result of Musk’s successful bid to buy Tesla, leftist Twitter profiles lost followers whereas conservative ones gained them.
“Following the announcement of Musk’s $44 billion buyout, the hashtag #LeaveTwitter began to trend on the site, with some apparently following through on that promise,” according to Breitbart News.
What will Twitter be like when conservatives finally regain their free speech? It’s anyone’s guess how the liberal will react to blunt facts being spread in mass. Chances are they will keep pushing with their disinformation narrative to pass a law that Twitter itself must follow.
