Question is why does @elonmusk hate capitalism?!
 
Qu茅 buen vendedor que era Jobs...
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Oh no! Did Steve Jobs spoil elons spoiler alert 15 years ago?
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
He is appealing to the same mental giants who believe Trump's constant bullshit. It doesn't matter if it's true or not.
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Jeez. It looks like we are going to be fact-checking this guy as often as the Orange former president tweeter.
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Thank you! I support Private Companies. This faux attack as a 鈥渟ecret tax鈥 is a farce. It鈥檚 not a TAX it鈥檚 a SERVICE FEE that is upfront in the TOS. Don鈥檛 undermine yourself @elonmusk
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
As a commentator on politics, you should know the difference between tax and price. that only the state imposes taxes, while companies charge for their services.
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
And relative to others, Apple have done a pretty good job at QA for their App Store. Could be better, imo but it鈥檚 not a dumpster fire like the rest.
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
It鈥檚 almost as if you鈥檙e intentionally making a fool out of yourself Elon

It鈥檚 never been a secret tax. I know very little about tech, but I know about this. It makes sense to me why doesn鈥檛 make sense to you.
 
That "tax" language is consistent with all the "free speech" misinterpretations. #Sinkman must have had someone else take his citizenship test for him.

On April 14, 2022, Elon said he wanted to buy @Twitter at $44B All giddy & excited & forceful,threaten to take it to shareholders if not accepted. On April 25, 2022 Twitter Board accepted the offer.A week later,Elon complained about everything Twitter.-- Hmmm... Sounded familiar?

The left protecting their two favorite things: Taxes and Apple
 
2008 is when the AppStore went live and we still haven鈥檛 seen this type of innovation happen in healthcare for digital health tools.
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Chill out 鈥渟ecret鈥 agent man. everyone here was 21 when that came out. We deserved a reminder of what we agreed to with iphone 2 now that we鈥檙e agreeing to hundreds of electric agreements for iPhone 14.
 
In reply to @elonmusk
Everybody using the App Store knows this. It鈥檚 not a tax. It鈥檚 a fee users voluntarily agree to. twitter.com/briantylercohe鈥
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
So 鈥渟ecret鈥 Steve job himself announced it lol.

I mean, is like he literally lives on another planet... Mars perhaps? 馃槀 pic.twitter.com/Hf75PUSdmb
 
By calling this a "secret" tax @elonmusk has knowingly spread misinformation.
 
In reply to @elonmusk
@elonmusk thinks this is a spoiler, but we all knew back in 2008. Funny how he鈥檚 using twitter for misinformation. I guess that鈥檚 what 44 billion gets you.

Sounds like someone is looking at libel.

There is the receipt. Onto the next.
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
So you ok with Apple taking 30% of revenue from app developers? Don鈥檛 think Apple needs you defending them. Didn鈥檛 know liberals suddenly loves big tech like Apple? What happened?
 
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
He charges +10k for an 鈥渁utopilot鈥 that could kill you, but is complaining about fees.
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
This is a video from 15 years ago when the App Store consisted of 鈥渇art apps鈥. Now the app-store is a monopoly,I risolto has been prosecuted for less then that during desktop era.
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
In offline retail, this is popularly called "rent."
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
"We keep 30% to pay for the app store." "There are no hosting fees." Isn't the app store where the apps are hosted? What am I missing?
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Yeah, but secretly announced.
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
There is no reason to defend Apple鈥檚 anticompetitive business practices because you dislike Elon. You can dislike them both at the same time, like only one or like them both at the same time depending on the issues being discussed. Apple鈥檚 policies have become a monopoly.
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Why about users after 2008?! They鈥檙e just supposed to know this stuff? Clearly @Apple is intentional on burying this information.
 
 
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Get out of here with your facts. These conversations should be all about feelings.
 
 
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
How does this compare to Android鈥檚 App Store?
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Oh damn 30% of 8 bucks
 
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
It鈥檚 a pretty damn steep fee
 
Doesn't sound like a secret to me.

The Chinese people thank you Tyler 馃檹馃徑

Right?! Welcome to app development!

SHH! It's a secret! You're not supposed to discuss it!

Elon just made up the entire scenario because he knew people would eat it up鈥 There is no secret tax or anything of the like. twitter.com/briantylercohe鈥
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Maybe advocating for Apple to tax everybody 30% for right to exist is not ur best take
 
 
Elon's just jealous that Apple has a business model that actually brings in revenue.
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
maybe apple should charge for people to download Twitter then ????
 
 
 
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
Exceptionalism 鈥 isn鈥檛.
 
In reply to @briantylercohen
It's to much Brian. That's why it calls it "secret".
