Twitter Takes Action against Trump’s Retweet after Linkin Park Files Copyright Complaint

Linkin Park doesn’t
support Trump and it’s obvious from their recent stance.

Trump has had issues
with Twitter in the past where his tweets/retweets have been disabled and flagged due to factual inaccuracy or other serious reasons. If you’re wondering
what Trump has done now, well… here’s the story.

On Saturday, Trump had
retweeted a video in which the song
The End
by Linkin Park was featured. The video also included
excerpts from his inaugural speech – making it seem as if the man has worked
really hard and stands by all things fair – as if.

As a response, Linkin
Park tweeted this:

To add more salt on
injury, Twitter removed the video which was tweeted by White House deputy chief
of staff for communications Dan Scavino on Friday. This action was taken after
Linkin Park filed for a copyright claim which was posted to the nonprofit
transparency initiative

The Twitter spokesperson
said: “Per our copyright policy, we
respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by copyright owner or their
authorized representative.”

As the election near,
Trump and his attempts are looking desperate. Last month, Trump ran a campaign
video on his social media, which was removed from both Twitter and Facebook.
The video had images of George Floyd as well as another old man who was
murdered by police officers on 25th May. Trump had called this
but Jack Dorsey was quick to respond as he responded by saying that it’s “Not true and not illegal. This was pulled
because we got a DMCA complaint from copyright holder.”

If you feel like you
need a recap of the last four years of Trump’s Presidency (which I feel is concerning because why would you want to relive past traumas?), then you can
Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency
This book has a lot of inside scoop and direct interviews with the sociopath himself,
but remember it’s written by a republican.

Nobody from Trump’s
campaign has responded yet.
