Tell Apple and Google to Remove X from Their App Stores if Elon Musk Eliminates the Block Button
Elon Musk is floating yet another awful “improvement” to the user experience on the app formerly known as Twitter: eliminating the block button that people have long relied on to protect themselves from hateful accounts and toxic behavior on the social-media platform.1
But it doesn’t have to be this way: Apple and Google have terms and conditions for a reason, and they need to enforce them. We’re calling on the gatekeepers of the app marketplace to take responsibility for the apps they offer customers: Add your name today.
