In an awkward exchange of messages on social media, Elon Musk responded to a tweet from US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He urged her to stop hitting him after she expressed her frustration at a billionaire with an ego problem running a mass communication platform.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote on her Twitter that she is tired of having to collectively stress. It is about the explosion of hate crimes because some billionaire with an ego problem several controls a mass communication platform. And biases it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him out to dinner and made him feel special.
Elon Musk, who bought the platform for $44 billion earlier this week, responded to a tweet of Cortez that stopped hitting me. He is too shy, adding a blushing emoticon at the end.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to Musk with a now-deleted tweet. She referred to a different billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook (a social network belonging to the Meta company, classified as an extremist organization in Russia, where it is banned).
In her initial tweet, Ocasio-Cortez named Fox News host Tucker Carlson and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel. According to the media, he referred to a Politico post from 2019 whereby Zuckerberg arranged an intimate dinner with Carlson. While Thiel, Zuckerberg’s longtime mentor, was an early investor in Facebook.
Earlier, the Democratic representative wrote a series of tweets refuting Musk’s claim — without directly mentioning him — that the far-left had taken over the Democratic Party in recent years.
