Earlier this week, Elon Musk faced growing concerns that Apple would yank Twitter from its App Store. Wednesday, Musk announced that the problem was due to a misunderstanding. Apple CEO Tim Cook said pulling the plug on Twitter was never under consideration.
On Monday, Musk claimed that Apple had “threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store” without any rhyme or reason. He announced that if Google and Apple were to be uncooperative with the platform, he would develop a smartphone to combat the issue.
Since the billionaire can build rocket ships and electric cars, indeed, a smartphone is an easy feat. Thankfully for Musk, it doesn’t appear necessary to go down that avenue.
Musk has made several bold moves since his Twitter takeover that have leftists in tears. He has reinstated previously banned accounts such as former President Donald Trump. But he has also made these decisions based on polling results that indicate the majority and minority views on Twitter.
In his latest poll, Musk asked users whether he should grant amnesty to suspended accounts that have not violated the law. When the majority supported the proposal, he announced its implementation.
Much anticipated “Twitter Files” are coming soon, revealing the former suppression of free speech on the platform before the CEO took office. Musk said, “The public deserves to know what really happened. This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.”

Democrats and far-left-wing supporters are outraged over Musk’s takeover. Many claim that his mission to bring back free speech threatens democracy. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke out about the new CEO yesterday.
She said, “One human should not be able to go into a dark room by himself and decide … That’s not how it should work.” But many of the Dems speaking out make no sense when you can clearly see that Musk asks the public to make decisions for him through his polls and surveys.
