Elon Musk yesterday (Monday) accused Apple of threatening to remove the Twitter application from its App Store.

Musk wrote the things in a series of tweets, in which he claimed that Apple is pressuring Twitter to tighten the control of the contents.

In addition, Musk claimed in another tweet that the technology giant had stopped most of its advertising on Twitter, accusing Apple of censorship and that it was acting "against freedom of expression".



At the same time, Musk, who purchased Twitter last month for $44 billion, addressed the CEO of Apple in a direct tweet - and asked: "What's going on, Tim Cook?". And the war of the world's richest man against the technology giant does not end here. In another tweet he published He attacked the fee Apple charges developers - up to 30% of each purchase.

Delusion or contract?

Musk predicts a billion users for the new Twitter by 2024

In a tweet he tweeted on Saturday and from a presentation he made to his new employees (those who remain), Elon Musk predicts that the social network he acquired Twitter will have a billion users within a year to a year and a half (mid 2024) - in its new version, which he calls "Twitter 2.0".



Musk has a history of overly optimistic predictions, and he tweeted these things in response to a surfer who claimed that "this is what failure looks like."

According to figures provided by a spokesperson for Twitter last month to Reuters, the network had 238 million users, so it seems that Musk's vision is indeed very optimistic, to say the least.



Also on the negative side, Reuters received an internal document of the social network which claims that Twitter is losing its "heavy players": these are heavy tweeters, who, although they make up only ten percent of all users, are responsible for 90 percent of the tweets at a given time and also account for about half of the revenue of the company.

The document defines a heavy tweeter as someone who logs in six or seven times a day,

Meanwhile, personal details of millions of tweeters on the network

And if that's not enough trouble, a report from BleepingComputer claims that millions of Twitter user details are now available on hacker forums.



This is a leak of user information of 5.4 million records including email addresses and phone numbers of users that Twitter confirmed the existence of earlier this year, to which was added another 1.4 million records of suspended accounts, which are offered for sale for $30,000.



The source of the information leak lies in the weaknesses of Twitter's programming interfaces.

According to security researcher Chad Lowder (whose Twitter account was mysteriously suspended...is Musk keeping his mouth shut?), the leak is even wider than that, and may include up to 17 million records and possibly more.
