Elon Musk visits Apple Campus, meets Tim Cook to talk Twitter

Apple Campus

Elon Musk has confirmed he’s held meetings with Tim Cook at Apple’s HQ, Apple Campus.

Earlier this week, Musk claimed Apple was “threatening to remove Twitter” from the App Store and made some comments about Apple’s 30% App Store percentage, which is reportedly one of the reasons why he paused Twitter Blue. This new subscription service allows consumers to pay for verification on the platform.

Musk has since taken to Twitter to confirm he had a “good conversation” with Tim Cook, adding that the Apple boss was not planning to remove Twitter from the App Store.

Some speculated that Apple could be forced to remove Twitter from the App Store following a week of controversies, which saw thousands of major brands be impersonated on the platform. Apple has previously taken action against social media apps that don’t offer appropriate moderation, and Twitter was appearing to become something of a ‘free for all’. Since then, Musk seems to have changed his tune on moderation.

However, Twitter reportedly stopped enforcing its COVID-19 misinformation policy, a controversial move.
