Elon Musk says Apple ‘threatened to deny’ Twitter on its App Store

Elon Musk claims that Apple has “threatened to deny” Twitter on its App Store. Definitely a problem with failing moderation on the platform.

In other tweets, Elon Musk rails against the 30% commission on in-app purchases and claims that the owner of the App Store has censored other developers. He also claims that Apple “has pretty much stopped advertising on Twitter.” The American giant would not be the only major advertiser to have done so in recent weeks.

In any case, it would not be the first time that Apple has grievances against Twitter. Former Twitter trust and safety manager Yoel Roth said Apple App Store analysts often identified content on Twitter during their analysis process. “When I was at Twitter, representatives of the stores often recalled their fears about the content available on our platform,” he wrote, specifying that the analysts brought up insults or nudity on the service. “Even though all of this is mostly escalated through manual checks and other anecdotes, these procedures have the power to derail company plans and trigger all sorts of crises for weeks or months.”

Definitely a problem with failing moderation on the platform

Elon Musk Didn’t say whether Apple is currently blocking new updates to the service or threatening to remove the app from its store. However, a number of recent issues may have actually triggered Twitter’s close attention at Apple.

This Sunday, The Guardian reported that Twitter had failed to have a video of the 2019 attack on a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand removed. Members of the government had to report its existence to the platform. The activity of some activists following the reactivation of highly public accounts has also raised serious concerns. Especially since the new CEO said he wanted to offer “amnesty” to banned accounts.

Apple has very strict rules around the content that can appear in the applications present on its store. Talka Twitter competitor emphasizing “free speech”, was removed from the App Store for several months due to its lack of moderation (it was allowed again after the implementation of a moderation system driven by theartificial intelligence). In 2018, Tumblr banned adult content from its platform after it was temporarily removed from the App Store.
