Elon Musk said Apple Inc.
is threatening to remove Twitter Inc. from its App Store and criticized the tech giant for what he called censorship. He also said the iPhone-maker has withdrawn most of its advertising spending from the social-media company.
In a series of tweets Monday, Mr. Musk asked if Apple supports free speech and posted a poll asking users whether Apple should publish all censorship actions it has taken that affect its customers. Mr. Musk also asked Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook in a tweet, “What’s going on.”
“Apple has also threatened to withhold Twitter from its App Store, but won’t tell us why,” Mr. Musk said Monday. In another tweet, he asked: “Who else has Apple censored?”
Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
