From Sarah Needleman's "Elon Musk Claims Apple Is Threatening to Remove Twitter From App Store" posted Monday by the Wall Street Journal:
Elon Musk says Apple is threatening to remove Twitter Inc. from its App Store and criticized the tech giant for what he called censorship. He also said the iPhone-maker has withdrawn most of its advertising spending from the social-media company.
In a series of tweets Monday, Mr. Musk asked if Apple supports free speech and posted a poll asking users whether Apple should publish all censorship actions it has taken that affect its customers. Mr. Musk also asked Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook in a tweet, “What’s going on.”
“Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why,” Mr. Musk said Monday. In another tweet, he asked: “Who else has Apple censored?”...
Last week Apple executive Phil Schiller, who oversees the company’s App Store, deactivated his Twitter account, which he had used to promote Apple products. Also last week Mr. Musk said he would make his own smartphone if Apple and Google were to boot Twitter from their app stores.
“I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone,” he tweeted.
My take: Musk's ideas about free speech and censorship may be too black-and-white for the job he's taken on.
