Elon Musk has posted waves on twitter threads aiming at Apple and companies who have paused advertisement on twitter since his takeover. On Monday 28th November, Elon Musk posted “Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?”
Elon musk later doubled down on the tweet aimed at Apple, and asked his 118 Million followers on Twitter that “Apple should publish all censorship actions it has taken that affect its customers” in a Poll. Later on Elon Musk posted “Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why”
Later on, Musk posted a tirade of shots on twitter claiming “Did you know Apple puts a secret 30% tax on everything you buy through their App Store?”
This comes off as many have disagreed with the direction of twitter since Elon Musk takeover prompting Apple’s App Store chief to canceled his Twitter account, increasing rumors the corporation is unhappy with Elon Musk’s freewheeling manner since taking over the social media app.
