Users of Apple products can breathe a sigh of relief today after Twitter CEO Elon Musk confirmed that Twitter will remain on the App Store.
In the ever-changing landscape of Twitter since Musk’s takeover, it seems that there is a new controversy every time you log in. In one of the most recent debacles, Musk shared that tech giant Apple was considering removing the Twitter app from its app store as part of its moderation process.
In a tweet from Musk on Monday, he said “Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why.”
This sent the world into a frenzy and even sparked conversation about Musk creating his own Tesla phone if Twitter were to be removed from Apple products.
It seems the world won’t see a Tesla phone (at least not yet) as Musk has stated that the misunderstanding surrounding the removal of Twitter was resolved in a meeting with Apple CEO, Tim Cook.
Musk shared a short clip of the Apple headquarters on his Twitter page on Wednesday saying “Thanks @tim_cook for taking me around Apple’s beautiful HQ.”

A follow-up response to that tweet said “Good conversation. Among other things, we resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store. Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing so.”
The public’s fear of Twitter being removed from Apple products was somewhat justified as a string of attacks against Musk and Twitter have ensued ever since Musk acquired the company back in October, and this was once done to social media alternative Parler not so long ago.
