Elon takes on apple in a battle

In a new round of rambling tweets, Elon Musk accused Apple of censorship and claimed the Cupertino corporation had ceased running Twitter ads. Aside from threatening to remove social media from the App Store without offering any justification, the tech corporation allegedly retweeted statements and quotations about free speech and how mankind is engaged in a conflict over the destiny of civilization.

Data from ad management company Pathmatics shows that between November 10 and November 16, Apple spent $131,600 on Twitter advertisements, which is roughly half of what it did between October 16 and October 22 – the week before Elon Musk bought the social media for $44 billion.

Apple was the leading advertiser on Twitter in the first quarter of the year, spending around $48 million there, or about 4% of total revenue. About 90% of Twitter’s revenue comes from advertising revenues.

Elon Musk claimed in a tweet that Apple requires developers to pay 30% of each in-app purchase made through the App Store. He also reposted a spoof movie about Fortnite’s problems with the App Store that said 2020 will resemble 1984.
