Twitter is at risk of being deplatformed by the App store ‘gatekeepers’ Apple, Google Play, and Amazon, amid new owner Elon Musk’s commitment to free speech.

The speculation came following Apple executive Phil Schiller deactivating his Twitter account days after Donald Trump’s account was restored on the platform.

Meanwhile, Apple’s official Twitter account removed all its tweets.

“Musk is playing a dangerous game that could spell game over for the platform he just bought,” Fast Company reported.

“Musk’s platforming of hateful content could get Twitter itself de-platformed,” writes Clint Rainey, warning the company was on a “collision course” with app store “gatekeepers.”

Rainey expressed anger after Musk culled the number of “moderators employed to track harmful content and enforce Twitter’s rules against it.”

Fast Company contacted Apple, Google, and Amazon to ask if they planned to deplatform the Twitter app itself, but they have yet to respond.

The article notes how both Parler and Truth Social were banned from app stores before being forced to agree to more draconian moderation policies.

But what these leftwing outlets are failing to report is Musk’s moves to address Twitter’s longstanding issue with child sexual exploitation content after years of being ignored under the previous management.

While many platforms actively fight against pornographic content showing child sexual exploitation (CSE), Twitter, before Musk acquired it, failed to make any significant effort to address the issue.

In September, before Musk finalized the deal to buy the platform, Twitter was already facing trouble after several of its advertisers complained their ads were appearing next to child pornography.

As The Daily Fetched reported at the time:

Advertisers, including DIRECTV, Thoughtworks, Dyson, Mazda, Forbes, and PBS Kids, suspended their campaigns after a Reuters report exposed the problem.

Big brands, including Walt Disney Co, NBCUniversal, Coca-Cola Co, and even a children’s hospital, were advertised on profile pages featuring child pornography, according to new research about child sex abuse online from the cybersecurity group Ghost Data.

“Some of tweets include keywords related to ‘rape’ and ‘teens,’ and appeared alongside promoted tweets from corporate advertisers, the Reuters review found. In one example, a promoted tweet for shoe and accessories brand Cole Haan appeared next to a tweet in which a user said they were ‘trading teen/child’ content,” Reuters reported.

Can you imagine getting your daily endorphin rush from being an activist? That is really unfortunate for some folks.

These left wing folks are anti-american zealots, whose skin is so thin they are lucky they don’t dehydrate daily. They can dish out their opinion, but cannot take any rebuttal, let alone FACTS. If you hate American free speech, PLEASE, move somewhere more appropriate for your weak a*s ideas, and leave America alone.

Isn’t it funny that “hate speech” is almost always the truth and what the leftists don’t want to hear?

Maybe the little children had too much milk in their oatmeal growing up. So called ” Activists” are nothing but toleration leftist democrats who need to grow up and be tolerant. Convince me with your ideas and reason,. Not throwing a tantrum and demanding censorship. The 1st A makes it pretty clear you can’t do that.

Is ‘t it funny how only conservative speech can be hateful? Leftists can say the most vile things imaginable, but it isn’t hate speech in their deranged minds. Hate speech is anything that disagrees with their party line, petty slights, and personal preferences. Snowflakes can’t survive in the furnace of free speech, because name calling will not win intellectual debates.
