Elon Musk announced his intention to “Go to War” against Apple. The CEO of Twitter has voiced his discontent with Apple’s 30% levy on software sold through the Apple Store. According to Musk, Apple has threatened to exclude Twitter from its App Store. The software is still accessible on the App Store, though.
Elon Musk criticised the “secret 30% tax on everything” in the Apple App Store in a series of Tweets. He then demands that Apple make all of its prior censorship decisions public.
Elon Musk published a tweet in which he declared his willingness to “Go to War” with Apple in order to avoid paying the 30% tax. The billionaire appears to have deleted the tweet, though.
In another recent tweet, Elon Musk called it a “battle for the future of civilisation”. Claiming that all that lies is tyranny, “if free speech is lost even in America.”
Apple has allegedly already stopped running ads on Twitter, according to the newly appointed Twitter CEO. In a statement, he said, “Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?”
If Apple or Google decide to block or prohibit Twitter, Musk has made strong suggestions in a previous tweet that he would create his own line of cell phones.
The billionaire’s response to Apple’s threat to “withhold Twitter” has yet to be seen. Elon Musk has directly criticised Tim Cook for allegedly stifling “free expression” on the site.
