Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren thinks that Apple should break up its App Store.




Warren outlined a significant plan on Friday calling for Facebook, Amazon, and Google to be broken up, too.




It's not the first time that Warren has expressed interest in breaking up Apple.




On Friday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, outlined a sweeping proposal to break up and regulate the largest tech companies.
Warren's plan specifically examined Facebook, Amazon, and Google, and asks them to eliminate marketplaces that limit competition and undo mega-mergers like Google's DoubleClick and Facebook's Instagram. She also said that new regulations wouldn't allow tech companies to share data with third parties.
"Today's big tech companies have too much power too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy," Warren wrote in a Medium post. "They've bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else. And in the process, they have hurt small businesses and stifled innovation."
