Elon Musk, a billionaire and controversial automaker, has been on a break. His outrageous tweets have gotten even more embarrassing. (Still, at least hes ignorant Lauren Boebert.) On Friday, he decided to try his hand at trolling lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with profoundly unsettling results.
ego scarcity https://t.co/IpyCkMadP8 is causing problems, according to me.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 30, 2022
AOC canceled a tweet dragging a billionaire who controls social media. Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special, according to Insider.
Which social media company-owning billionaire was she taking to task? Musk paread to believe it was him, and since he has a history of writing weird things to Democratic legislators, he did it once more. Stop hitting on me, he said.
In a since-deleted tweet, AOC said it wasn''t him she was subtweeting. I was scold about Zuckerberg, but she said it was OK.
She later wrote about Musk for real, tweeting, alongside a shrug emoji, like I said, ego issues.
Republicans have wondered if hell would reinstate several banned accounts, most notably the one belonging to a certain former president. Musk has confirmed what hell do, but given how many right-leaning tweets he has made of recently, it must really be a question of when.
