Apple never considered removing Twitter from the Apple’s app store: Elon Musk

Elon Musk went to Apple Park in Cupertino and resolved his disagreements with the company, avoiding a “war.”

After speaking with Apple CEO Tim Cook, Elon Musk tweeted that the confusion around Twitter’s potential removal from the App Store had been resolved.

“Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing so,” Musk said in a tweet.


Previously, Musk claimed on Twitter that Apple had “threatened to withdraw Twitter from its App store,” but Apple made no comment in response. Tim Cook and Elon Musk have reconciled their disagreements after visiting Apple Park in Cupertino.

Musk also alleged that Apple had “mostly” stopped advertising on Twitter and went after Tim Cook directly, tweeting, “What’s going on here @tim cook?”

Although it is appreciated that Twitter and Apple have quickly resolved their disputes, more information is still required regarding the 30% fee Apple charges software developers for in-app purchases on the App Store. In fact, Musk continued by inquiring of his followers whether they were aware that Apple’secretly’ levies a 30% tax.

“This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead,” Musk tweeted while targeting Apple.

Musk even made a joke about “going to war” with Apple, referencing a prior legal dispute with the company that created Fortnite, Epic Games.
