Once again, Elon Musk’s change of direction on Twitter is falling behind. Everything is obviously linked to the Musk / Apple clash
The Twitter Blue system imagined by Elon Musk and which is intended to allow the certified identification of user accounts against a subscription of 8 dollars was to arrive this week. But all nothing is easy, the whole thing has just been delayed.
Musk vs. Apple over Twitter
Elon Musk has been at war with Apple for a few days since the company expressed its wish to no longer publish advertisements on the social network while threatening to remove the Twitter application from the Apple Store. Following this the billionaire accuses the manufacturer of being against freedom of expression. According to the very serious The Vergethis is what set “the fire to the powder”.
And that’s not to mention that the man criticized the 30% commission taken by Apple on purchases made in its Store, Elon Musk wishes not to have to pay this tax. In this context one can indeed understand the delay of the procedure. This new deadline will allow the creation of a Twitter Blue whose subscription fees will not be paid via the application available (yet) on iOS.
Did you know that Apple applies a secret 30% tax on everything you buy from its App Store?
Who else has been censored by Apple?
What do you think of this delay and more generally of Musk’s speech on Apple?
