    Be very careful there Phil. More than  Half of this country  and likely more than half of the Apple users agree with Musk and his views on Free speech .

    So political statements like this is not what shareholders want to see. 
    Ironically you are advising him to be weary of expressing his own free speech.
    Well no, as long as he represents Apple and is beholden to shareholders, he has a duty to act in a manner that will not damage the shareholders

    if he resigns, he can ran around with his pants off protesting a Twitter no problem!
    While the execs and C-level personnel have a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders, I'm not sure an Apple "Fellow" does, senior or otherwise. 

    Regardless, a lot of companies and shareholders are learning that remaining on Twitter is a bit of a gamble these days:

    "Half of this country... agrees with Musk"? Either you live in a country different than mine, or you need to share what you're smoking with the rest of the group. 
    I think you like imagine your coastal state as America. Or did you think Biden won 140 million to 15 million? And not 80 million to 74 million? (California and New York was responsible for most of the difference) And the US senate is not 50-50 or Republicans don’t have the house?

    and I say this as somebody who voted for Biden

    and I will say it’s likely way more than half agree with Musk when it comes to free speech, I do and many of my friends who vote Democrat do as well.

    lastly, Schiller part of the executive team so he is c-suite
    You think half the country agrees with
    musk based on the fact that trump lost the last election!? You must be the same kind of person who declared themselves the “moral majority” in the ‘80’s (religious wackos with a million or two members)

    I don’t know how many people agree with musk but his take on free speech is convoluted and ignorant. 
    Yes, I will bet you money the at least  the 53 percent of Americans who just gave Republicans the House agree with Musk on Free speech. If you don’t think that, you are the one in the bubble.

    Musk position on free speech is convoluted? Says you? But that is ok, I disagree but you can say it because it’s your right. But don’t try to say what I say is wrong because you disagree. 
    Lol. That is the same logic the “moral majority” used. Just assume over 150 million people agree with whatever your personal opinion is. At least you’re brave enough to bet me on it (eyeroll). 

    I absolutely will tell you that what you say is wrong. Because it is wrong.

    All this hoopla over Twitter is hilarious. Virtue quitting left and right by people who *gasp* might actually have to see opinions outside of their echo chamber and group think. The horror! Oh well, it's these same people that made Twitter the shit show it is so I say good riddance.
    What “outside of the echo chamber opinions” are you referring to? Low taxes?

    No. 

    Small government?

    No. 

    then what?

    oh, you know…

  • Apple's ad agency recommends a stop to Twitter campaigns

    So now that Twitter is finally being taken seriously, NOW Apple wants out? These advertisers should be ashamed. Nothing but a political shove. 

    They can't take about trust and safety while trying to boycott Twitter to ensure it gets hurt. As if their tactic isn't blatantly ovious.
    I can assure you, no one with a brain is currently taking Twitter seriously. 
    LOL. Some assurance. 

    Literally EVERYONE with a brain is taking Twitter seriously. Now more than ever. 

    Only the advertisers with money to burn and who can afford to limit their reach by “cancelling” Twitter are doing so. 

    Business usually suffers when it gets political. 


    While not tiny, Twitter is a relatively small spend in the advertising world. No one is burning money but Twitter and Elon. 

    The reason brands don’t want to advertise on Twitter right now isn’t because of wokeness or cancel culture or a political shove, whatever that is. It’s because the new owner of twitter posts political conspiracy theories from a crackpot “news” site and the use of racial epithets shot up massively. Now with huge layoffs the concern is that the racism and other types of harassment will only increase. Companies don’t want to get dragged into this Elon trolling shit show. They just want to advertise and they’d be smart to spend their dollars elsewhere until/if Elon can figure out what twitter is doing.
