Elon Musk, owner of Twitter for a month, declared “war” on Apple on Monday after already putting the social network in danger by alienating advertisers, (former) employees and regulators.
Elon Musk is talking about him again. The stormy billionaire claimed that Apple “threatened” to remove the social network needed on the iPhone from its app store. “Apple has threatened to remove Twitter from its App Store, but they’re not telling us why,” the Twitter boss said after a series of tweets accusing the Apple brand of censorship and abuse of dominance.
“Apple has effectively stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate freedom of expression in America?” he began in part, before challenging the leader of the California group in the following terms: “What’s going on Tim Cook?”.
“Apple threatens Twitter availability in the App Store or requires content moderation?” asked user Elon Musk, who answered yes. Apple did not immediately respond to AFP’s request. Elon Musk has posted a meme (parody image) depicting a car called “Elon” pulling off the freeway in the direction of a “declaration of war” instead of heading straight for the “30% fee,” Apple’s user spending commission. made through the app store.
