Elon Musk Says Apple has “Threatened to Withhold Twitter” From the App Store

Listen Here

“Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why” – Elon Musk

Musk also claimed that Apple has “Mostly stopped advertising” on the platform.

Elon Musk created a poll saying “Apple Should publish all censorship actions it has taken that affect its customers. 85% replies YES.

Seems like Apple might be caving to public pressure or the pressure behind the scenes.

To “withhold” could mean temporarily rejecting an update to the Twitter app or could involve a more serious threat to boot Twitter from the iOS App Store

It is possible that apple could have just been making a warning to Elon to make sure things align with apple’s TOS.

Elon Musk could be doing 1 or 2 things.

1 – Pre-emptively coming out strong against Apple to scare them away due to public backlash, boycotts and competition.

2 – Starting a fight now so Musk supporters could get onboard to dump Apple for a Musk phone

No matter how this ends, Elon Musk will become richer.

If Elon is forced to start ANOTHER new company, it would add possibly $10s -$100s of Billions to his networth.

Elon Musk has a Multi-Billion dollar market he has access to for FREE, this is why Tesla spends nothing on advertising,. The brand of Elon’s companies are mostly tied to his public presence.
