Musk Keeps Jabbing Back at Powerful Dems on Twitter – Hilarious! – Watch

Elon Musk has been attempting to allow people to get the blue check mark on Twitter if they will pay for the Twitter Blue subscription plan. The idea is that this subscription service will help support Twitter so that it can be less reliant on ads and not as prone to pressure from advertisers. This could be an independent town square for all voices. 

But this simple plan has annoyed a whole lot of people on the left who now don’t seem to like that ordinary people could also have a blue-check mark. The process now is that you click on the blue check mark to tell whether it was there because of Twitter Blue or because it was a blue-check “notable” person.

There’s a bit more effort and because it is new, there is some confusion. 

Musk has now put the application for the new Twitter Blue program on hold while it is being refined. 

But Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) went nuts about it, saying that someone had impersonated him.

Markey wrote, “A @washingtonpost reporter was able to create a verified account impersonating me—I’m asking for answers from @elonmusk who is putting profits over people and his debt over stopping disinformation. Twitter must explain how this happened and how to prevent it from happening again.”

He demanded answers by “November 25, 2002.” Hmm…that is twenty years ago.

Musk had a hilarious response to Markey: “Replying to @SenMarkey and @washingtonpost Perhaps it is because your real account sounds like a parody?”

He also asked why Markey was wearing a mask in his profile picture.

Sen. Bernie Sanders got in on the fun writing, “Replying to @elonmusk @SenMarkey and @washingtonpost. Probably not a great idea to troll a high ranking Senator with a history of taking down rich people who just so happens to sit on multiple committees which regulate your businesses the day after his party retakes the Chamber.”

To which Musk responded, “Are you suggesting the Senator will abuse his political power to attack me?”
