Amazon is one of many companies to remove advertising from its social media platforms after being acquired by Musk for $44 billion in late October. Many of those companies have since returned. Amazon will be one of these companies when certain security measures are put in place.
Also in a two-hour Twitter Spaces on Saturday, Musk said that the platform’s largest advertiser, Apple, has “completely restarted” advertising on the Twitter social network.
The news followed Musk’s allegations last week that Apple had “almost” stopped advertising on Twitter and threatened to “withhold” the social media platform from its app stores.
Neither Amazon nor Apple has publicly responded to these reports.
