South African-born billionaire Elon Musk has revealed that should Apple and Google decide to remove his Twitter app permanently, he may just create his own cellphone brand.

The father of 10 says he however hopes it does not get to that. This was in response to a tweet from political commentator Liz Wheeler who said the Twitter CEO should produce his own smartphone if the two companies decide to remove Twitter from their app stores.

According to Hollywood Unlocked, the analyst said, “If Apple and Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone”.

Wheeler said half of the country (the United States of America) would “happily” ditch the biased companies and it should be easy for Musk to develop his own smartphone.

In response to the tweet, Musk wrote “I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternate phone.” In a report by the Daily Wire, Musk’s response stemmed from advertisers asking the platform to monitor content that promotes hate speech – as per the publication.

According to the Daily Wire, Elon responded to the pressure campaign this week by saying that the company had cracked down on hate speech.

“Hate speech impressions down by 1/3 from pre-spike levels,” Musk tweeted. “Congrats to Twitter team!”

“I have half a mind to wag my finger at the 1500 accounts that caused the spike, but I shall forebear…Reducing the max allowed tweets/day to a number below what a speed typist on meth could do was helpful,” said Elon.
