Mr. Musk, who had said the company was trying to sabotage Twitter, met with Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, on Wednesday.
SAN FRANCISCO — In a series of tweets on Monday, Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, accused Apple of sabotaging his social media company by cutting back advertising and threatening to remove the Twitter app from the App Store.
By Wednesday, any potential feud appeared to have been avoided.
On Twitter, Mr. Musk posted a video of himself being shown around Apple’s campus in Cupertino, Calif., on Wednesday, walking past a meditation pool. While the video did not show whom Mr. Musk was walking with, Apple employees said they had seen Mr. Musk with Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive. Mr. Musk said in a later post that he and Mr. Cook had discussed their dispute.
“We resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store,” Mr. Musk said in a tweet. “Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing so.”
Apple declined to comment. Mr. Musk did not respond to a request for comment.
The meeting appeared to sidestep what had threatened to become a big spat between two of tech’s titans. Mr. Musk had taken aim at Apple’s power over the App Store, which is the only distributor of apps on more than one billion iPhones worldwide. His complaints — about Apple’s policies for approving apps and its practice of taking a cut of the sale of apps — resurrected an issue that had been raised by other companies, such as Spotify and Epic Games. Lawmakers and regulators around the world have been scrutinizing Apple’s power over software distribution.

Its always great to win elections and take over The House.
“...walking past a meditation pool...”
Can anyone ‘splain this to me?
Didn’t Apple turn on the protesters and help the Chinese Communist Party
I guess we’ll know soon if Elon was successfully hypnotized by Tim Cook or not.
Elon is taking a Donald Trump approach.
I like that.
My bet is Apple has still cut back advertising on Twitter. That Musk pledged that he would keep the worst hate out of Twitter. They declared a truce.
Apple has China problems with product deliveries. Due to the CCP lockdowns. Some of the latest iPhone 14 models are on 34 days delayed delivery.
I guess one just looks at the pool and meditates.
NO PEEING IN THE MEDITATION POOL!!!
Pee makes ripples though...
Cook bought it at the Twitter Firesale where they got rid of their meditation rooms, fired the chefs, and got rid of safe spaces.
I wonder if Musk brought Cook one of those Stay Woke t-shirts?
That would be great.
I figure most CEOs don’t take trolling well...
When you walk around the veranda you’ll see the car pool, then the drowning pool (not that one), then the money pool (you’re getting close), THEN the meditation pool and lastly the swimming pool.
So no Let the Bodies Hit the Floor?...
That’s a pooltastic campus.
The car pool is full of cars which makes no sense to me. Why submerge your automobiles? That’s just wrong.
The advertising is not too much of a problem.
Twitter is now growing so fast that other advertisers will come in either in America or overseas, where the majority of Twitter users are. Plus the new $8 a month fees should bring in some money too. Plus Twitter costs have dropped sharply, after getting rid of most of the fer left, very woke "workers".
That Musk pledged that he would keep the worst hate out of Twitter.
Virtually all the “hate speech” I have seen on Twitter comes from the left wing retards.
This close call was enough for me. I’m done buying any Apple products. At least with Android you can sideload any app you want.
Apple, like many others, are betting on China.
