Twitter disables US President Donald Trump’s tweet over copyright complaint.

Twitter has disabled a video retweeted by Donald Trump, citing a copyright complaint. This is not the first instance when a tweet by Donald Trump was taken off the social media platform.

The video was disabled on the grounds of copyright issue. The video included music from the group Linkin Park which later issued a cease and desist.

The clip featured Trump’s inauguration speech, with footage of Trump’s campaign rallies, battleships, machinery and rockets as the US President walks across stages and stands in front of the Lincoln Memorial. The video included background music from the group Linkin
park.

Trump’s tweet disappeared from his account and was replaced with a message from Twitter stating, “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.” This is not the first instance when Trump’s tweet was removed by the big media platform. His
tweets have been disabled on various grounds including violating their “policy against abusive behaviour, specifically, the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group”.

In one of his tweets, he took a shot at California’s mail-in voting ballots which he claimed: “lead to voter fraud.” The tweet was removed with a link from Twitter to get the correct facts about mail-in ballots.

The most controversial of his tweets include his tweet about glorifying violence. “When the looting starts, the shooting starts”. Twitter blocked users from being able to engage with the tweet, saying it violated its policy by glorifying violence.

A video relating to George Floyd’s death was also removed by Twitter. Regarding this: A “Black Lives Matter” mural painted on the street in front of President Donald Trump’s namesake New York City tower has quickly become a target for vandalism, defaced with bucketfuls of paint three times in less than a week.
