Why has Apple Inc. threatened to withhold Twitter from App Store?
Though Musk in his tweet wrote, “Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why”. It’s unclear as to what exactly made Apple do that to Twitter. However, Musk did hint that Apple wanted Twitter to have some content moderation. Meanwhile, Musk wants Apple to publish all its censorship that can have an impact on its customers.
Though Apple didn’t make any comment on the tweets of Musk. Previously, Apple did remove apps like Gab and Parler over its rules. Though Parler did get a restoration from Apple in 2021 when the app made changes connecting to its content and moderation practice.
