Twitter CEO Elon Musk, on Friday, tweeted that he would create a smartphone if the Google Play and Apple stores took Twitter off of their platforms.

Musk, who has been revamping the Twitter to bring back free speech to the platform while making it profitable, responded to Liz Wheeler, a conservative podcaster, per The Daily Wire.

“If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, [Elon Musk] should produce his own smartphone,” Wheeler tweeted. “Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?”

In response, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, wrote, “I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone.”

Musk has seen considerable pushback from members of the media over the direction he is taking Twitter, which has served as an echo chamber for progressives for years.

A recent piece in The Atlantic criticized Musk’s decision, via an online poll, to reinstate the account of former President Donald Trump. The article explained that the “entire incident is terrifically stupid. The story revolves around the whims of two wealthy and self-involved men who enjoy nothing more than public attention. It is an enormous waste of everyone’s time, and I resent having to think about it.”

The author, Quinta Jurecic, would go on to claim that Musk “is clearly unconcerned about the risk of future violence” in response to his decision to bring back a major presidential candidate for the 2024 presidential election.

In response to such criticism, Musk has decided to double down and offer a general amnesty to all Twitter accounts that have been previously suspended.

The month-old Twitter CEO tweeted a poll that asked users to decide whether Twitter should “offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?”

The poll had overwhelming support for reinstating previously suspended accounts with 72.4 percent of the 3,162,112 votes being in support of the policy while only 27.6 percent were against it.

Musk is taking the social media site in the right direction. On Saturday, Musk tweeted screenshots of a presentation that was given at the Twitter company talk which showed that new user signups are at an all-time high, hate speech is down, and the introduction of multiple new features including long-form tweets, the launching of Twitter verified, and encrypted direct messages.

The billionaire is using the skills he has accumulated from building some of the most successful companies in the world and utilizing them to completely reform Twitter. It is about time that a competent innovator throws a wrench into Big Tech.
