The Apple executive who ran the App Store for 30 years deleted his Twitter account over the weekend.
A few days earlier, Elon Musk took to Twitter to complain about “excessive” app store fees.
Twitter risks being banned from Apple’s App Store if Musk rejects the rules, a former Twitter executive said.
Apple’s high-profile executive who runs the App Store deleted his well-publicized Twitter account over the weekend.
Phil Schiller, a current Apple employee and former top marketing executive for more than 30 years, had over 200,000 followers on his Twitter account, which he started in 2008, before deleting it. The account now has one message for visitors who say “This account does not exist.”
Schiller’s camera to delete the account soon after Musk commented on App Store fees to be exalted. In a Nov. 19 tweet, Musk said, “App store fees are clearly too high due to the iOS/Android duopoly. It’s a hidden 30 percent tax on the Internet.”
Musk is referring to the 15% to 30% fee Apple and Google charge companies like Twitter for in-app purchases.
Twitter, Schiller and Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Schiller’s departure, which was made outside regular business hours.
Musk previously complained about App Store fees in May, again calling the fee a “hidden tax,” adding that the fee is “literally 10 times what it should be.”
Musk plans to launch his Twitter Blue subscription service to boost the company’s revenue. When author Stephen King complained about the price of Twitter Blue, Musk responded in a tweet: “We have to pay the bills somehow! Twitter cannot rely entirely on advertisers. How about $8?”
App Store fees would cut into the revenue generated by Twitter Blue, hence Musk’s complaints.
Writing in the New York Times, Twitter’s former security chief Yoel Roth said that “not complying with Apple and Google’s rules would be catastrophic and risk getting Twitter banned from their app stores,” underscoring the stranglehold the tech giants have on the Internet.
Despite Schiller’s departure from the platform Apple CEO Tim Cook remains active on the platformas well as Apple’s corporate accounts.
