Elon Musk confirms that Apple has no intention of banning Twitter

In recent weeks we have experienced a small war between Elon Musk and AppleWell it really was a one way attack since Apple has never spoken. But, be that as it may, that has earned Elon Musk to get a visit to Apple Park and speak personally with Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple.

And in this conversation, Tim wanted to make it clear to Elon that At no time has Apple considered expelling Twitter from the App Store. It is a rumor that appeared in recent days, even spread by Elon Musk himself, but that did not come from official sources of the bitten apple company.

Elon Musk confirms it: Twitter is not in danger in the App Store

After uploading a video from Apple Park in which you could see the silhouettes of the two CEOs, Tim Cook and Elon Musk, the latter has updated the situation with one second tweet with more information what they have talked about.

Good conversation. Among other things, we resolved the misunderstanding about the possible removal of Twitter from the App Store. It was clear to Tim that Apple never considered doing so.

The reason for this visit was clarify that Apple has never wanted to ban Twitter, despite Musk’s latest measures. That he has assured that he plans significantly reduce the amount of content moderation on Twitterhaving reinstated the accounts of controversial figures, such as former President Donald Trump.

Occasionally Apple has cracked down on social media apps that didn’t enforce proper moderationHowever, Musk should have promised Cook an acceptable degree of restraint. Things like hate speech will continue to be monitored.

Musk has also shown outrage over the 30% commission that the App Store takes in in-app purchases, something that particularly interests Musk and his Twitter Blue subscription service. However, it does not seem that they have reached any conclusion about it.

The Musk’s decisions since his arrival at Twitter have not been without controversy. Problems with account verifications that lead to a new idea such as color verifications, the elimination of the classic “Twitter for iPhone” or “Twitter for Android” and has even threatened to make all users pay, in addition to the decision that give Twitter “absolute freedom of expression”. At least you won’t have to launch your own smartphone, Twitter stays in the App Store.
