Apple terminated a known Chinese indie developer’s account out of blue and took down all his apps immediately and left him gagged from appealing. Something’s wrong here. @panzer could you take a look? https://twitter.com/cyanapps/status/1165118305461395457 …

Twitter has now updated its advertising policies to end promoted tweets from state-backed media:

“Any affected accounts will be free to continue to use Twitter to engage in public conversation, just not our advertising products.” https://blog.twitter.com/en_us/topics/company/2019/advertising_policies_on_state_media.html
