Following Elon Musk's takeover of Twitter, many companies pulled their advertising from the platform. This was due to the widespread overreaction to his actions and the demands for censorship to be reinstated.
Following the demands of several former blue-checks, Twitter has now become a dangerous platform.
In an article published in the New York Times, former Twitter safety and trust officer Yoel Roth stated that under Musk's leadership, the platform might be removed from the app stores of Google and Apple if it doesn't follow guidelines.
According to Roth, if Twitter doesn't follow the guidelines of Google and Apple, it could be removed from the app stores of these two companies, which would make it harder for people to access the platform. He also noted that these two companies have enormous power over the decisions that Twitter makes. As he was leaving the company, he said that the reviews of apps had already started.
In response to the rumors, Elon Musk confirmed that Apple is threatening to remove Twitter's app from its app store. He did not provide a reason for this, but he did say that the company's CEO Tim Cook is not a fan of free speech.

Phil Schiller, the head of Apple's App Store, deactivated his Twitter account. Despite this, observers are not entirely convinced that this is a great sign. According to Mark Gurman, a reporter for Bloomberg, it's clear that Schiller is unhappy with the new Twitter.
In response to the rumors, Elon Musk stated that he feels that Apple's monopoly over the app market is unfair. He also discussed his thoughts on the company's pricing model for the App store.
Musk's new subscription service, which is called Twitter Blue, would greatly benefit Apple, as it would allow the company to easily earn a 15 to 30 percent share of the revenue.
During his Friday night speech, Musk revealed a simple plan that he would implement if Google or Apple decided to remove Twitter from their respective app stores. He said that he would build a smartphone.
In response to a conservative commentator named Liz Wheeler, who said that if Google and Apple remove Twitter from their app stores, then Musk should create his own device. She noted that half of the country would happily use a silly little smartphone if Musk built one.
