Elon Musk meets Apple CEO Tim Cook, says it was a ‘good conversation’ – Times of India

Days after suggesting that Apple wanted to boot out Twitter from the App Store — and that he might not have a choice but to go to ‘war’ — Elon Musk has tweeted that he actually met Apple CEO Tim Cook. In a tweet, which included a short video, Musk thanked Cooked for “taking me around the beautiful Apple HQ”. In a follow-up tweet, Musk said that he had a good conversation with Cook and that Apple never had plans of removing Twitter from the App Store. “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,” Musk tweeted. Curiously, Apple or Cook haven’t confirmed anything about the meeting with Musk. And even more curiously, Musk has deleted the tweet where he suggested going to war with Apple.

Why was Musk ‘unhappy’ with Apple

A few days ago, Musk in a series of tweets questioned about more than a couple of things. First, he said that “Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter,” before wondering if Apple actually hated “hate free speech in America?”. This prompted a journalist to ask Musk on Twitter if Apple was “threatening Twitter’s presence in the App Store or otherwise making moderation demands?” Musk replied in the affirmative.
It’s not clear what Musk and Cook spoke at the reported meeting but the Apple ‘tax’ may have been on the menu. Last week, Musk revealed that the feature would launch on December 2. However, it looks like that feature has further been delayed. According to a report by The Platformer, the expected launch on December 2 has been delayed. A report by The Verge concurs and also confirmed that the launch has been delayed. The reason for the delay is reportedly Musk figuring out a way to get out paying Apple a commission of all the in-app purchases made on the iOS app of Twitter.
