AOC thinks free speech literally means you don't have to pay for it
· Nov 2, 2022 ·

This is a real thing that a real United States congressperson actually tweeted.

The honorable Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent this "zinger" out last night to try and roast Elon Musk and his plan to charge an $8 subscription fee for a blue checkmark on Twitter.

Yes, AOC thinks "free speech" means you don't have to pay money to post things in certain places.

This is so, so close to a Babylon Bee prophecy.

Never mind that Twitter is still free and the 8 bucks is just to buy your "verification" and unlock some features, that ISN'T what the word "free" means in this instance.

It means "freedom" to say what you want, which is what Elon is planning to bring back to Twitter.

The replies to AOC are absolutely golden:

Sorry, AOC, if you don't like it why don't you start your own Twitter?
