Musk also pointed out that Apple is charging high fees for the in-app purchases of the app. In one of the tweets, he says that Apple takes around 30 percent tax on everything you purchase from the App Store.

If Apple takes the action of removing Twitter from the Apple Store, New users will not b able to download Twitter on their iPhones, and iPads. After this, Twitter’s existing users won’t be able to update the app.

The alleged threat adds to the advertiser pressure, staff departures, and regulatory scrutiny confronting Musk as he seeks to overhaul years of Twitter policies and account suspensions in his quest to push a “free speech” agenda.

As per the reports, In the first quarter, Apple was the top advertiser on Twitter. They used to spend $48 million on ads on Social Media Platforms which is more than 4 percent of Twitter’s revenue that quarter. Musk put pressure on Tim Cook in a series of tweets for pausing that spending.

However, Apple does not respond to the request

“Did you know Apple puts a secret 30% tax on everything you buy through their App Store?”

Musk reveals his intention he will even go to war with Apple.

Several liberal groups and Organizations are putting pressure on Apple and Google to ensure that Musk’s Twitter is adhering to their policies.

Angelo Carusone said in the statement:

“I think that both Apple and Google should not give an exception to Twitter when it comes to their terms of service and this is something that I’ve been saying since May, which is that it’s going to be advertisers and the app stores that are the fulcrum”
