Twitter has removed a picture from a tweet by President Trump on Tuesday after it received a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) complaint from the New York Times, which owns the rights to the photo.
Why it matters: This is the second time in two weeks that Twitter has had to take down content from Trump’s account due to a copyright violation.
Twitter and Facebook both removed a manipulated video tweeted by the president’s account two weeks ago after the parents of the toddler subjects featured in the video lodged a copyright claim.
The cultists are furious. Again.
Let me see if I have this right… Twitter removed a photo of President Trump from President Trump’s Twitter page because the supposed copyright holder of the image filed a claim against President Trump for posting a photo of HIMSELF with some text in a genetic font? What a joke. pic.twitter.com/x2rfjGuLy4
