You recognize what they are saying… when you give a mouse a cookie, he is gonna need some milk.
Earlier this week, Apple made X the exception to a rule by altering “Twitter” to “X” on the App Retailer (earlier than that, it appeared, Apple didn’t enable an app to look of their retailer utilizing a single letter for its title).
Now, within the title of higher pay for X’s creators, Musk additionally desires Apple’s to alter its extremely contended App Retailer-wide charge of 30 %.
“Apple does take 30% [of what Twitter creators make off of subscriptions]” mentioned Musk in a tweet on Aug. 2, “however I’ll converse with Tim Cook dinner and see if that may be adjusted to be simply 30% of what X retains with the intention to maximize what creators obtain.”
