Elon Musk’s meeting with Cook confirmed that Apple never considered dropping Twitter from App Store

Admist all of the rumors of the App Store possibly dropping Twitter, owner Elon Musk and the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook called a meeting.

Early in the day, there were rumblings on Twitter of Musk being at Apple's headquarters and sure enough, Musk confirmed those rumors to be true with a single tweet saying "Thanks @tim_cook for taking me around Apple's beautiful HQ" and a four-second video of a pound at the facility.

During this time many on both sides were speculating what this meeting means, would this be the point where Elon caves on free speech to Tim Cook? Or would Musk stand his ground and continue to fight for the other half who's been disenfranchised on Twitter for the past two years?

About two hours after the initial post alerting everywhere he was at Apple's headquarters, Elon tweeted an update about how the meeting went, tweeting:

"Good conversation. Among other things, we resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store. Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing so."

So far it seems like everything is ok between the two tech giants, for now.
