Elon Musk loggerheads with Apple over Twitter advertising


New York: Elon Musk claims that Apple has “mostly” halted advertising on Twitter and that the Cupertino-based tech firm has “threatened” to remove Twitter from its App Store.

“Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?” Elon Musk said in a tweet.

Continuing his series of tweets targeted at Apple, Musk mentioned Apple’s CEO, “What’s going on here @tim_cook?”

Later, Musk went on to ask his followers if they knew that Apple secretly charges a 30% tax on everything you buy through their App Store.

“This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead,” Musk said later.

Several companies including General Mills Inc and luxury automaker Audi of America have paused advertising on Twitter since Musk completed his purchase, while General Motors Co said it had temporarily halted paid advertising on the social media platform.
