Elon Musk, a billionaire, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic congresswoman, engaged into an online spat on Twitter. AOC expressed her dissatisfaction with the massive communication platform’ in a tweet on Friday evening. Despite the fact that the woman appeared to be really upset, the 32-year-old responded to her message in a funny manner.
Why did Elon Musk and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have a Twitter battle?
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez turned to Twitter to express her displeasure with the rise in social media-stoked hate crimes. Despite the fact that the Rep. did not divulge the name of the person to whom she was referring, Musk felt it was him to whom AOC was speaking.
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

The world’s wealthiest man is notorious for his bizarre tweets. In his trademark funny fashion, he responded to AOC’s post. ‘Stop hitting on me, I’m pretty bashful,’ Musk remarked in a tweet.
Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy ☺️

Ocasio-Cortez then responded to Musk, clarifying that she was referring to Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook and Instagram. Regardless, she quickly erased the tweet after it was sent. Musk purchased 100% of Twitter for $44 billion earlier this week, making him the new owner.
What was the reaction of the internet to Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter?
Elon Musk disclosed his purchase of Twitter on Monday. The announcement elicited a mixed reaction. The announcement angered progressive internet users, while conservative users embraced it.
Musk’s contradictory restrictions and bans on the social media site elicited a mixed response from netizens. Liberals were concerned that users who shared “harmful content” would not be held responsible for their conduct.
Those who break Twitter rules, on the other hand, will be handed ‘time-outs,’ according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Rather than a complete ban from the platform.

Since Musk’s takeover, many Twitter employees, the majority of whom are liberals, have expressed their dissatisfaction. Musk is rumoured to be bringing in a new board of directors after sacking Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal.
