Elon Musk Puts Apple CEO Tim Cook On Notice: “Who else has Apple censored, should Apple publish all censorship actions it has taken that affect its customers”

Twitter CEO Elon Musk put Apple CEO Tim Cook on notice on his social media platform calling out the cell phone maker for not advertising on Twitter and for censoring speech Musk said:

“Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America? What’s going on here @tim_cook?”

A Twitter user said: “During Covid, Apple demanded our apps filter some search terms from being returned. If we did not filter the terms, our apps would not be allowed in the store. Apple may make good products, but they have been opposed to free speech for some time.”

Musk asked his followers: “Who else has Apple censored?”

A Tesla owner asked Musk:

“Is this really a fight we want to pick.

“An awful lot of your Tesla customers use iOS to access their cars.

“If that app gets pulled, it’ll significantly impact your ability to sell to Apple customers.

“Cards are way less convenient than BT entry.”

Musk fired back with:

“Are you suggesting Apple would use its duopolist powers to hurt Tesla?”

Musk asked the first poster about what they claimed Apple censored, “What terms?”

They responded:

“Apple disallowed almost anything related to Covid, especially vaccines or human origins of the virus.

“We had to build a list of over 20 terms to not show results for, only on Apple devices.

“Apple also later rejected us because users included Pepe images in videos.”
