Mr Mullenweg was opposed to the idea, especially as he founded WordPress to make the internet free for everyone.
“My life’s mission, and the purpose of WordPress, is to increase the freedom of the internet,” he said in a later tweet. After his tweet got thousands of reactions, he prompted an apology from the tech giant. “We believe the issue with the WordPress app has been resolved,” Apple said in a statement. “We have informed the developer and apologize (sic) for any confusion caused.”
