As we mentioned earlier, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wanted to know why people should pay $8 a month for Twitter Blue “just for their app to get bricked when they say something you don’t like.” She also made a video accusing Musk of censoring her.
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?
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 🤔 pic.twitter.com/e3hcZ7T9up

The intrepid reporters at CBS News took a break from calling half the country “election deniers” to dig into the story.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed Wednesday that her Twitter account was experiencing technical issues following an online disagreement with Twitter’s new owner and CEO, Elon Musk. https://t.co/VsFYPBzrgL

If Musk were messing with her account, that would be a news story. Her accusing him of messing with her account is just another day ending in y. C Mandler reports:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed Wednesday that her Twitter account was experiencing technical issues following an online disagreement with Twitter’s new owner and CEO, Elon Musk.
The Democratic New York representative alleged Wednesday that her Twitter “mentions/notifications conveniently aren’t working.” She followed up with a second tweet Thursday which claimed that the “Verified” tab of her account, which should be populated with tweets from verified creators, appeared empty.
“This is what my app has looked like ever since my tweet upset you yesterday,” she wrote. “What’s good? Doesn’t seem very free speechy to me.”

Did you call Rather out of retirement for this hard-hitting story?

Yeah that happened to the NY Post once.

The New York Post was kicked off Twitter for publishing a true story.

They couldn’t post for six weeks or so due to some “technical issue.”

Right on the heels of #FreeMollyJongFast , which turned out to be user error.

Let’s give her the standard liberal responses:
“Its a private company it can do whatever it wants”
“Private companies don’t need to give free speech”
“If you have a problem with it, build your own”
“Its not really happening, you’re giving out misinformation”

Then she spent an hour on Instagram stuffing her face crying about it. She’s the biggest snowflake on Twitter and in Congress!

The glitch she describes happens to me and others frequently. But she’s a narcissist who thinks everything revolves around her.
— Tim Acheson ✪ (@timacheson) November 3, 2022
Apparently, everything does revolve around her if this makes the news. The Hunter Biden laptop story breaks just before the election, Twitter throttles it, and the media won’t touch it. But AOC had a complaint … and she’s still complaining about $8 a month.
AOC’s so hung up on Elon Musk, she can’t even stop eating to gripe about him (and lie about herself) https://t.co/dd3HIhQEBH
