Elon Musk Gives Open Challenge to Apple and Google

Elon Musk, the new boss of Twitter, makes a lot of statements on the site, making it difficult to keep up. Musk engaged in a public argument over whether Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced founder of FTX, owns any stake in Twitter and polled Twitter users about whether he should grant "general amnesty" to suspended accounts just this week. Musk was back at it on Friday, telling people that he might create a competing phone with Apple and Google.

Naturally, the tech billionaire's remarks were in response to a tweet Liz Wheeler, a conservative podcaster and former host of OANN, had sent to him. Wheeler suggested on Twitter on Friday afternoon that Musk build his own phone if Apple and Google decide to remove Twitter from their app stores. Given Musk's dedication to "free speech"—as long as it doesn't offend him—and lax content moderation, the future of Twitter in Apple and Google's app stores has recently been a hot topic.

The developer tweeted, "@elonmusk should build his own smartphone if Apple and Google ban Twitter from their app stores." Wheeler declared on Friday that "the biassed, snooping iPhone & Android would be happily abandoned by half the country." It should be easy to use a silly little smartphone, right? The man constructs Mars-bound rockets.

Three hours later, Musk told Wheeler that if Twitter was removed from Apple and Google's app stores—the official entryways to iPhone and Android devices around the world—he would create his own phone. Wheeler had started a poll of her own asking people if they would use a "tELONphone," perhaps as an homage to Musk, who enjoys polling people on Twitter.

56.2% of the 52,707 votes cast at the time of publication were for "Yes," making it the most popular answer.

I sincerely hope it never comes to that, but yes, Musk tweeted, "If there is no other option, I will make an alternative phone."
