One more wicket down in the match of Twitter VS Trump. Due to copyright policies, Twitter once again pulled down President Trump’s retweet. Twitter has pulled down a video that was retweeted by Trump and based on campaign-style. The reason behind taking off the video is – copyright issues. Linkin Park filed the complaint against it and claimed that this did an unauthorized utilization of their music.
The video which has pulled down contains Linkin Park’s 2001 superhit track “In the end” as a piece of background music and which incorporated pictures of President Donald Trump, moreover, a part of his inauguration speech as well. As per the copyright policy, Twitter did so. On Saturday, the band tweeted that, ” cease and desist order has been issued and it wasn’t an authorize use of the song in the video”.
Cheif of the team for conferences of White House, Dan Scavino tweeted the video on Friday evening, and then, later on, Saturday President Donald Trump retweeted it. But, unfortunately, the retweeted video wasn’t longer noticeable on President Trump’s wall. However, Dan Savisco’s video was still live until Sunday morning. But, as of now, the video from Dan Savisco’s news feed has also been taken off.
Twitter has taken Action over Trump’s Tweet Before This
However, it is not the first move of twitter against President Trump’s tweets over a copyright charge. Twitter had taken off the four-minute longer video last month that contained pictures of George Floyd, the man who took his last breath on May 25th after a cop killed him by kneeling on his neck. Even, Facebook and Instagram eliminated posts from their platforms as well. Here, you’ll get every bit related to George Floyd’s custodial death.
