Elon Musk's Twitter takeover saga has been a rollercoaster of emotions

From originally planning to back out of buying the social media platform, and eventually buying it anyway and firing employees, to charging users who want to be verified RM38 a month — the tech billionaire has definitely made himself busy since he decided to purchase the social media app.

And his recent tweets have got people turning their heads

According to Musk, Apple is apparently saying that they want to take Twitter off the app store, but haven't given a clear indication as to why. 

The claim was made in a tweet on his personal Twitter profile.

Additionally, this tweet came shortly after Musk said Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Musk even went on to mention Tim Cook, the current CEO of Apple, in a separate tweet, asking him why they've done this.

There might be a reason why the tension is high between these two tech icons

Previously, Musk criticised Apple for imposing what he believes to be app store fees that are 'too high'. For clarification, Apple is entitled to a 30% commission fee for the use of its App Store and in-app payment system.

Apple has yet to give a comment to several news outlets regarding this claim.
