Sky News Business Editor Ross Greenwood says it’s been a turbulent month at Twitter as Chief tweeter Elon Musk took control.
“Today Musk zeroed in on a new target and that’s Apple – his barrage of tweets started when Elon asked Apple CEO, Tim Cook, why it had stopped advertising on Twitter,” Mr Greenwood said.
“Then Musk revealed that Apple has threatened to pull Twitter from its app store, that would be a massive blow – so, what’s behind Apple’s threat? Musk’s next tweet shines a light.
“He reveals that Apple charges a 30 per cent tax – he calls it a tax but it’s actually a charge – on everything purchased through the app store, a fee that directly impacts Musk’s plan to charge Twitter users $8 a month.
“Musk ended the attack by tweeting; This is a battle for the future of civilization, if free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.”
