    The Facts

    • On Wednesday, Elon Musk tweeted that he and Apple boss Tim Cook had met and "resolved the misunderstanding" over Twitter potentially being removed from the iOS App Store.

    • This follows allegations from Musk on Monday that the iPhone maker had threatened to remove the social media platform from its App Store for unknown reasons as he accused Apple of censorship and monopolistic practices.

    The Spin

    Right narrative

    The mainstream media has been histrionic since Musk took over Twitter and started implementing changes. They fear increased hate speech and misinformation, but a strong democracy can withstand untrue opinions and outlandish comments without falling apart. Musk's new Twitter marks the end of the Orwellian foundations that the company stood on for years.

    Left narrative

    Musk's brief few weeks as Twitter's CEO have been overwhelmingly marked by chaos, and with the platform set to have no barriers to what can or cannot be said, advertisers have rightly started applying pressure. While the feud with Apple may have simmered down, for now, it's only a matter of time before the erratic billionaire picks another fight.

    Nerd narrative

    There's a 5% chance that Elon Musk will hold a major political office in the US before February 2033, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
