In a series of tweets on Monday, the billionaire CEO of Twitter and SpaceX accused the smartphone maker of no longer advertising on Twitter, insinuating it was because the company is trying to censor content on the platform.

“Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?” Musk wrote.

Later on Monday, Musk created a poll on the social media site asking his followers if “Apple should publish all censorship actions it has taken that affect its customers.” Some 85 percent agreed with the poll which garnered over 2 million votes.
