The craziness that Elon Musk has embarked on after taking ownership of Twitter, this time the reaction has started coming from outside the company as well. On Monday, Elon Musk complained that the phone company Apple threatened to withdraw Twitter’s app from its iOS app store.
Elon Musk said in his tweet, “Apple has threatened to remove our Twitter app from their app store. But they didn’t say exactly why they wanted to do it. Needless to say, if Apple did that, Twitter’s business would suffer a major collapse.
In another tweet, Musk claimed that Apple had stopped advertising on Twitter. It is, of course, an expression of Apple’s disdain for free speech to him. In another tweet, Musk criticized Apple’s business policies. Said, Apple takes 30 percent transaction fee from big apps, which in his eyes is a form of censorship.
That is, Apple’s relationship with Mask is not going very well. But the reality is that Google and Apple are the biggest gatekeepers in the mobile app world. That is, users download applications for mobile phones from their app store. Another notable thing is that long before buying Twitter, when Musk’s parent company Tesla was not doing well, he considered selling the company to Apple; But Apple CEO Tim Cook did not have time to meet with him.
