In Elon Musk’s first significant update to the social media site, Twitter’s app was updated on Saturday and started charging $8 for coveted blue check verification marks. The decision made by Musk is currently being discussed online. A few days ago, Elon Musk and New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez engaged in a verbal battle about it.

The microblogging users were split today after Elon Musk uploaded a post with a picture of a T-shirt but left no text accompanying it.

The Twitter CEO was questioned about the new blue tick payments by former Democratic Party candidate and writer Heidi Briones after Mr. Musk mocked New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a photo of a t-shirt that stated, “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”

Heidi Briones asked to Elon Musk, “Are you going to pay the $8, Elon?” in the comment section, and he replied 100%.

For a better grasp of their entire Twitter argument, refer to the chronology below. Let’s look at this:

The $8 monthly subscription fee for Twitter verified users was disclosed by Elon Musk a week ago.

Then, on November 2, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, tweeted, “Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that ‘free speech’ is actually a USD 8/mo subscription plan.”

Elon responded to AOC by stating his position once more on the blue tick tax and jokingly said, “Your feedback is appreciated; now pay $8.”
