Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has been roasted online, following his desperate attempt to get paid subscribers on Twitter.

Farage tweeted: “Join my private Twitter Subscribers Club.. For just £5 per month you will get:

Monthly win a pint with Nigel prizes

Ask me anything on Twitter Spaces

Exclusive behind-the-scenes content

Plus much, much more… Head to my profile & click subscribe now!”

The plea for subscribers was met with much ridicule, with some speculating that he must be ‘skint’.

The arch Brexiteer also shared a video of himself with his tweet, where he said: “Well thank goodness for Elon Musk! Twitter is now genuinely a public space for free and open debate.”

He then went on to say that for £4.99 a month, subscribers would get exclusive, direct content, as well as access to “things that perhaps should be said in private” and free bottles of “Farage gin”.

He added: ″I promise you it will be the most enormous fun. I will be, at times, wholly irreverent, but I’ll tell you what I really think.”

His plea for subscribers was met with much ridicule.

One social media user wrote: “Dear god, I couldn’t think of anything worse!”, while another wrote: “The grifter keep on grifting … why am I not surprised.”

One Twitter user wrote in reply: “Rent a buffoon. Now on sale!”
