Apple Pulls Ads From Twitter… Elon And Linda, You Have A Serious Problem

Earlier today, I wrote about IBM pulling ads from Twitter because they were put alongside Nazi and antisemitic posts. That is a big problem for Twitter along with the two people who run the shop which are Elon Musk and Linda Yaccarino. Now Elon and Linda have a new problem. Apple has decided to pull its advertising. Let’s see what Axios has to say:

Apple is pausing all advertising on X, the Elon Musk-owned social network, sources tell Axios.

Why it matters: The move follows Musk’s endorsement of antisemitic conspiracy theories as well as Apple ads reportedly being placed alongside far-right content. Apple has been a major advertiser on the social media site and its pause follows a similar move by IBM.

I for one am glad that Apple is walking the walk on this issue because Nazi content, antisemitic speech, or hate speech of any sort is something that nobody should stay silent on. And here’s the thing that you need to watch for over the coming hours or days. How many companies will pull their ads from Twitter? Because if IBM and Apple have yanked their ads, other companies will not want to be on Twitter and be perceived as supporting Nazi content, antisemitic speech, or hate speech of any sort. Thus I see a mass exodus of advertisers from Twitter. And I am pretty sure that most of them will not return regardless of what assurances that the duo of Elon Musk and Linda Yaccarino give the planet. That in turn will accelerate the demise of Twitter, which we all knew was coming when Elon took over. And finally it will cement Elon’s legacy, which is that he’s a grade “A” scumbag. And Linda Yaccarino will get associated with that forever.

Get the popcorn out folks. This is about to get spicy.
