A photo circulating on social media purports to show a screenshot of a tweet from Apple CEO Tim Cook telling Elon Musk to "pay 30%" after the Twitter owner complained about Apple's business practices. But the image is altered; live and archived versions of Cook's page show he published no such post, and the user who created the picture told AFP it was meant as a joke.
