Twitter disables Trump ‘campaign’ tweet over copyright complaint

Washington: Twitter disabled a campaign-style video retweet by US President Donald Trump, citing a copyright complaint.

The video, which included music from the group Linkin Park, disappeared from the President’s Twitter feed late on Saturday (US time) with the notification: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”

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

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