Phil Schiller, in charge of Apple events and the App Store, has deactivated his Twitter account because of recent changes on the platform.
Schiller often used his account to talk to customers and tell them about new Apple products, services, software, and projects. Mark Gurman of Bloomberg wrote on Twitter that Schiller’s account no longer exists. A web archive of the report from November 4 shows that it was made in November 2008 and had more than 200,000 followers.
While I expect lots of leeway, there is a real scenario in which Apple/Google remove Twitter because of content moderation issues or because Twitter decides to bypass the 15%-30% cuts. Notably, we appear to now know how Apple’s App Store chief feels about the new Twitter. https://t.co/PCjOEsWA1L pic.twitter.com/LWjFCgxINA
