The Metro quotes Paul Stone on Elon Musk's feud with Apple over Twitter advertising

Elon Musk has said Apple has halted most of its advertising on Twitter and accused the company of threatening to remove the platform from its app store.

The feud comes as many companies have halted spending on Twitter amid concerns about Mr Musk's content moderation plans for the site. Companies including Cheerios maker General Mills and Volkswagen are among the firms that have halted their spending in recent weeks.

Paul Stone, Senior Counsel, provides comment for Metro on the feud:

“As fears mount over Musk's intentions to transform Twitter and its content moderation processes, his most recent feud has turned out to be with Apple.

From a legal standpoint, it’s worth remembering that the UK Competition Authority has an ongoing investigation into how Apple operates its app store, and therefore Musk’s complaints may have damning implications for Apple and the investigation.”
