Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has suffered a meltdown over Elon Musk’s takeover of the social media giant Twitter.
AOC complains that her account was censored because her notifications weren’t showing up.
Apparently, leftists suddenly have a big problem with censorship.
The same liberals were completely fine with social media censoring information about Hunter Biden and the origins of COVID-19.
AOC said, “So I pulled up my Twitter app and it’s, like, gone. Like, when you pull up your mentions and stuff like that, it’s just like literally a blank screen…so turns we got under a certain little billionaires’ skin.”

Yo @elonmusk while I have your attention, why should people pay $8 just for their app to get bricked when they say something you don’t like?
This is what my app has looked like ever since my tweet upset you yesterday. What’s good? Doesn’t seem very free speechy to me 🤔 pic.twitter.com/e3hcZ7T9up

More from Townhall:
In an Instagram live, Ocasio-Cortez said the alleged censorship came after she criticized Musk for wanting to charge users $8 a month in order to be verified. Musk simply replied, “Your feedback is appreciated, now pay $8.”
Ocasio-Cortez has since posted a screenshot showing her verified notification tab is empty. She said she was unaware Musk had responded to her because she has not been getting notifications. It is possible that due to Musk’s response from Wednesday, it has crashed her notifications due to high number of users interacting with the thread.
Musk has defended the idea to charge money for users to be verified because he says it will make Twitter profitable and give users better perks, including paying users.
