Elon Musk is to "make an alternative phone" if Google and Apple remove Twitter from their App Stores he announced on his Twitter a short time ago.
The head of Apple's App Store deactivated his account on Twitter amid the possibility of tension between the Elon Musk-owned platform and the two companies that are the internet's main gatekeepers: Apple and Google.
The Apple App Store, Google Play, and even smaller players like the Amazon Appstore, have language intended to protect users from discrimination, bullying, harassment, and other kinds of objectionable content.
Phil Schiller, who also leads events for Apple, had been active on Twitter since 2008 and had over 200,000 followers. DailyMail.com reached out to Apple for comment on Schiller's departure.
Twitter still plans to relaunch its paid subscription service, Twitter Blue, at a cost of $8 per month on Nov. 29. Since most people access Twitter on iPhones or Android devices, this means that Apple and Google stand to profit if Musk's revamped subscription service takes off.
