Elon Musk and Apple could be on a collision course as Musk tries to rebuild Twitter

Elon Musk has announced big plans for the social media service since he took over the social network last month.

Musk wants to vastly increase the revenue the company makes through subscriptions, but that could put it in conflict with Apple.

Musk is already stirring trouble, complaining in a tweet about the high costs of the Apple app store.

Plus now concerns about his plans violating the App store’s rules.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk has a new 24 hour poll going on his Twitter.

He asks:

Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?

It comes after Donald Trump’s suspended account was re-instated to the platform after a similar poll over the weekend.

Sexually explicit materials will also be banned under the new policy.

Musk says signups to Twitter are averaging over two million per day over the past week.

Reported impersonations on the platform spiked earlier this month, before and in wake of the Twitter Blue launch.

Musk says buying Twitter will speed up his ambition to create an “everything app” called X.
