Elon Musk Blasts Apple for Pulling Ads, Threatening to Remove Twitter from App Store

Elon Musk spoke out against Apple for removing its advertising from Twitter and threatening to remove the app from its App store.

Musk made the remarks on his own Twitter account on Monday.

"Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?" he tweeted.

"Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store but won't tell us why," he added.

The searing words were not the first time Musk has criticized advertisers fleeing Twitter over his free speech emphasis.

"Twitter has had a massive drop in revenue due to activist groups pressuring advertisers, even though nothing has changed with content moderation, and we did everything we could to appease the activists," Musk wrote in a previous post.

"Extremely messed up! They're trying to destroy free speech in America," he added.

General Motors, General Mills, Pfizer, and Volkswagen were among the companies stopping ads after Musk's takeover of Twitter, according to the Blaze.

Other progressives on Twitter urged users to stop using the platform or to delete their accounts in response to Musk's actions. Some have also suggested moving to other platforms such as Mastodon that some former Twitter employees have embraced.

Musk has also recently opened a poll on Twitter that asked if Apple should "publish all censorship actions it has taken that affect its customers." A total of 84.7% of users said yes, while only 15.3% disagreed.

UPDATE: Musk has since met with Apple and worked out their differences.
