In a series of tweets on Monday, Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, accused Apple of sabotaging his social media company by cutting back advertising and threatening to remove the Twitter app from the App Store.

By Wednesday, any potential feud appeared to have been avoided.

On Twitter, Musk posted a video of himself being shown around Apple's campus in Cupertino, Calif., on Wednesday, walking past a meditation pool. While the video did not show whom Mr. Musk was walking with, Apple employees said they had seen Musk with Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive. Mr. Musk said in a later post that he and Mr. Cook had discussed their dispute.

"We resolved the misunderstanding about Twitter potentially being removed from the App Store," Musk said in a tweet. "Tim was clear that Apple never considered doing so."
