If Apple and Google remove Twitter from their stores, the “telonphone” could arrive

Ever since the purchase of Twitter – and even before, when the deal was just speculation – Elon Musk has been in the news, daily. Among the many claims he has made this time, there is one thing to retain: “telonphone”.

It is, yes, a smartphone, and it could become real, if Apple and Google decide to remove Twitter from their application stores.


The new owner of Twitter says so much there that it becomes difficult to follow. From the announcements, the threats, through the joke and the panic, in some cases, to the recent polls. Now, Elon Musk is back on (now his) social network.

The future of Twitter in Apple and Google’s app stores has been a frequent topic in recent days, as Musk has mentioned a somewhat distorted concept of “free speech” and moderation. Following this theme, the former host of One America News Network (OANN), Liz Wheeler, challenged Elon Musk to develop his own smartphone, if the two giants moved forward with the removal of the social network from Play and the App Store.

The tweet made by Liz Wheeler reads: “If Apple & Google remove Twitter from their app stores, Elon Musk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would gladly ditch the biased and snooping iPhone & Android. Man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?”

In response, Elon Musk these who would effectively build their own smartphone if Twitter were banned from the Apple and Google app stores. However, he revealed that he was hopeful that the matter would not escalate to that point. 🇧🇷

Following in the footsteps of the approach that Elon Musk has recently adopted, Liz Wheeler created a poll, in order to find out if users would switch to the “tELONphone”. Surprisingly, at the time of writing this article, “Yes” leads the way, with 52.8% of the 102,072 votes.

Apple and Google have very clear rules and for Twitter there are no exceptions

As tech giants, Apple and Google don’t craft their policies from the knee. Therefore, both have paragraphs that prohibit the applications of their stores from containing hateful or discriminatory speech, intimidation, harassment and sexually explicit content.

Now, taking into account the history of the two companies, Twitter would not be the first application to leave its stores due to similar issues. For now, however, the output is just speculation, as well as the “telonphone”.
