(Pocket-lint) – Elon Musk’s tumultuous time at the helm of Twitter so far took on a minor new twist when the new CEO revealed he had visited Apple’s headquarters in California to meet Tim Cook.
He said they had visited Apple headquarters and Tim Cook clarified that Apple had in fact never considered removing Twitter from the App Store.
This is actually a rebuttal of Musk’s version posted earlier in the week, in which he claimed that Apple viewed the potential removal of the App Store as a threat.
Good conversation. Among other things, we resolved the misunderstanding regarding Twitter’s potential removal from the App Store. Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing this

It’s been widely reported that Musk isn’t keen on the idea that Apple has long taken 30% of transactions made by apps from the App Store.
It is not yet known whether this problem has been fully resolved or not, but it would seem that the dialogue between the figureheads of these large companies is now a little more intense.
Part of Musk’s general grievance currently revolves around the flood of advertisers who have quit or suspended their use of Twitter since his takeover, after controversial and extreme figures returned to the platform.
It remains to be seen whether this meeting will help change the situation.
