Elon Musk reveals Apple is threatening to block Twitter on the App Store

Tram Ho

As reported by The Verge, Elon Musk recently revealed that Apple is threatening to block the Twitter app from the App Store for unknown reasons. This news comes after a tweet from Elon Musk, in which he also said that Apple has almost stopped advertising on this social networking platform.

Billionaire Elon Musk also ran a Twitter poll on whether Apple should publicize all its censorship actions on apps that affect its customers. Apple has yet to comment on Elon Musk’s statement.

The conflict between Elon Musk and Apple seems to be getting more and more intense. Earlier, Elon Musk criticized Apple’s App Store fee for all in-app purchases, which is 30% respectively. An Apple executive, Phil Schiller, immediately deleted his Twitter account after Elon Musk took over.

In an interview on November 15 on CBS News, CEO Tim Cook said of the negotiations with Twitter: “They said they would moderate the content. I’m still counting on them to keep doing that.”

However, after taking over Twitter, CEO Elon Musk pledged to relax the social network’s censorship rules and put forward the idea of ​​​​reviving a series of previously banned accounts. In it, the account of former President Donald Trump has been restored.

Twitter has repeatedly challenged the App Store’s censorship boundaries. Twitter is one of the only major platforms that still allows adult content on its app. Perhaps this is also the reason why the App has to take measures to prevent it.

If Elon Musk’s statement is correct, then Apple’s blocking of Twitter could be to stop updating the app on the App Store, or possibly more seriously, not allowing the Twitter app to be downloaded from the App Store anymore. However, Apple has not made an official announcement about this yet.
