Twitter Disables Trump Tweet Over Copyright Complaint

Twitter Handicapped a campaign-style video that US President Donald Trump retweeted on Saturday, citing a copyright complaint.
The video, which included songs in the band Linkin Park, vanished from the president’s Twitter feed Saturday with the notification:”This press has been disabled in response to a report from the copyright proprietor.”

Twitter removed the video, which Trump had retweeted from White House social media manager Dan Scavino, after it received a Digital Millennium Copyright Act see from Machine Shop Entertainment, according to a notice posted on the Lumen Database which gathers requests for removal of online materials.

Machine Shop is a management company owned by the rock band Linkin Park, based on its LinkedIn page.

“We react to valid copyright complaints sent to us with a copyright owner or their authorised agents,” that a Twitter representative said in an email announcement.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Twitter started challenging Trump’s tweets in May and has clashed with him because. The social media firm has a lot of times handicapped or remarked on tweets from the president due to what it said were copyright complaints or violations of a policy contrary to threatening violence.

Twitter removed an image the president tweeted on June 30, which contained an image of Trump, because of a complaint in the New York Times, whose photographer had taken the image.

The business also put a tweet in the president behind a warning tag in late May, stating that he had violated its rules against”glorifying violence” when he suggested that Minneapolis police be demanding in responding to protests over the passing of George Floyd.
