Elon Musk meets Tim Cook, says misunderstanding about Twitter "resolved"

Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, stated Apple never considered removing Twitter from its App Store after meeting with Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple.

Elon Musk had earlier predicted that Apple might remove Twitter from its App Store without providing a specific justification. He continued by saying that Apple had stopped running ads on the social media network.

“Good conversation. Among other things, we resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store. Tim (Cook) was clear that Apple never considered doing so,” Musk tweeted.

Musk asked questions about several things in a string of tweets a few days ago. Before asking if Apple genuinely detested “free speech in America,” he first noted that Apple has basically abandoned advertising on Twitter. A journalist then tweeted Musk asking if Apple was “threatening Twitter’s existence in the App Store or else making moderation demands” in response to this. Musk gave a positive response.

Although it’s unclear what was discussed at the meeting between Elon Musk and Tim Cook, the Apple “tax” might have been on the agenda. Musk stated last week that the functionality would go live on December 2. But it appears that this functionality has been further postponed.

According to reports, Musk is trying to figure out a way to avoid paying Apple a commission on every in-app purchase made using the Twitter iOS app, which is the cause of the delay.

One of the issues Musk raised on Twitter was the up to 30% fee Apple charges software developers for in-app purchases. Musk published a meme suggesting that, rather than paying the commission, he was ready to “go to battle” with Apple.
