Twitter owner, Elon Musk has subtly shrugged off the ongoing feud with Apple after a stroll around Apple headquarters with the iPhone maker’s chief, Tim Cook.

Thanks @tim_cook for taking me around Apple’s beautiful HQ,” Musk tweeted.

Musk had complained about Apple on Twitter this week, when he claimed Apple had threatened to boot the app from the App Store without explaining why.

He also complained that Apple had pulled most of its advertising from Twitter, and questioned whether Apple “hated free speech in America“.

However, the meeting with Tim Cook seems to have defused the situation.

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,” wrote Musk.

It was not immediately clear from the tweet how this ‘misunderstanding’ had occurred. Tim Cook hasn’t yet tweeted about the meeting.

Musk on Friday said Twitter was addressing the bot problem that he said the platform had prior to completing his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter in late October.

Recently, Musk has boasted that Twitter’s daily active user numbers have reached record levels. But he warned that some users may now see their follower numbers decline.

Twitter is purging a lot of spam/scam accounts right now, so you may see your follower count drop,” he wrote.

Twitter on Wednesday published a blog explaining the drastic and rapid changes the company has undergone since Musk took the helm. Those changes, according to Twitter, are leading towards Musk’s vision for Twitter 2.0.
