AOC Claims Without Evidence Elon Musk Is Messing With Her Twitter

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) prompted a conspiracy theory of Elon Musk going after her Twitter account Thursday afternoon after the new Twitter CEO Elon Musk joked about her complaints of being required to pay $8 per month for premium services on the platform.

“Also my Twitter mentions/notifications conveniently aren’t working tonight, so I was informed via text that I seem to have gotten under a certain billionaire’s skin,” claimed the self-described ‘Democratic Socialist’. “Just a reminder that money will never buy your way out of insecurity, folks.”

Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on those claims in a video she put up on Instagram, 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, it’s just like literally, it’s a blank screen,” she continued. “Totally gone. And I was like, ‘Hmm, that’s weird.’ So, it turns out we got under a certain little billionaire’s skin,” Ocasio-Cortez commented as she munched on a chicken nugget.

The socialist congresswoman posted a screenshot of what she alleges was likely the doing of Musk.

“Yo @elonmusk while I have your attention, why should people pay $8 just for their app to get bricked when they say something you don’t like?” she wrote. “This is what my app has looked like ever since my tweet upset you yesterday. What’s good? Doesn’t seem very free speechy to me.”

AOC provided no proof or evidence that the notice her account received occurred as a result of nefarious tactics employed by Elon Musk.

CBS noted that the tech guru posted a photo of a sweatshirt available on Ocasio-Cortez’s website, circling the $58 price tag.

As noted by Fox News, numerous conservatives jumped on the opportunity to ridicule the congresswoman for her unproven claims.

“AOC is big mad at the thought of Twitter not boosting her bad takes anymore. More importantly, don’t talk with [nuggets] in your mouth. Gross,” quipped Federalist editorial director Kylee Griswold.
