Twitter’s Chief Twit Elon Musk said yesterday that he might make an alternative phone to rival Google and Apple.
Rumours have been circling that Google and Apple may look to boot Twitter from their app store if things continue to go south.
Musk’s comments came in response to a tweet from Liz Wheeler that tagged him.
I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone

A few hours later, Wheeler posted a poll if her fanbase would use a Tesla mobile phone.

Both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store have yet to make a decision or comment on the matter, though.
However, both app stores do have policies that ban apps in their applications that contain hate or discriminatory space.
Both tech companies kicked Parler off their app stores after the January 6 riot in Washington, DC.
Since the boot Parler has now been allowed to return to the Play Store and App Store after they made some significant changes.
Musk has always been a big-picture person.
However, Tesla is not a personal electronics company, and you do not see many upstarts in the handset area because it’s saturated and has low margins.
Do you think Musk should enter the tech business and build a Tesla or Boring Company-branded handset?
Would you make the switch? Let us know in the comments below.
