Trump Whines That Twitter “Illegally” Removed Video

The Hill reports:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Friday responded to President Trump’s assertion that the platform’s removal of his campaign video was “illegal,” reiterating that the video was pulled because it had run afoul of the website’s policy on copyrighted material.

The Team Trump video was retweeted by Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., before it was removed with a message that said: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.” Facebook and Instagram on Friday removed the same video from their platforms also citing copyright concerns.

“We received a copyright complaint from the creator under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and have removed the post,” a Facebook official told The Hill. “Organizations that use original art shared on Instagram are expected to have the right to do so.”
