Libs of TikTok creator Chaya Raichik trolled the Washington Post's Taylor Lorenz when the media figure reached out to request a comment. Raichik publicly shared screenshots of the exchange.
"Hi Chaya, I'm doing a story on Twitter's monetization program for creators. Did you receive any payout from Twitter? I noticed that you haven't posted about it. Is that because you weren't invited to participate?" Lorenz asked.
"Please include my full comment: 'It's none of your business,'" Raichik replied.
Twitter is paying some users big bucks due to an ad revenue sharing program.
"You've bragged about monetization previously on other platforms, were you not included in Musk's group? Has your relationship with Twitter soured?" Lorenz asked.
Raichik responded by sarcastically declaring that she has been secretly dating Elon Musk.
"My relationship with Twitter has not soured. In fact, it's thriving! Elon and I are actually dating. Please don't tell anyone because we're keeping it quiet. You have a name for being very trustworthy and honest so I know I can trust you with this information," Raichik replied.
When Taylor Lorenz pressed the matter of whether Raichik is earning money from Twitter's program, Raichik replied, "I'm writing a story on people who suffer from Elon Derangement Syndrome and refused to pay for a blue check and/or took a lot of their content off Twitter. I'm curious if they have any regrets now that they're seeing creators get massive cash payouts. Can you give a comment as I believe you fit this category?" Raichik wrote.
"No," Lorenz responded.
Musk, who had been tagged in the post that features screenshots of the exchange, replied with laughing emojis.
