Twitter Removes Trump’s Post Over NYT Copyright Complaint


Twitter has yet again removed another post shared by Donald Trump after New York Times filed a copyright complaint for the image.

The original tweet by Trump issued on June 30, showed a meme that read “In reality they’re not after me they’re after you I’m just in the way” with Trump’s picture in the background.

The photo was taken by NYT photographer Damon Winter for a feature on the then-presidential candidate in 2015.

However, hours after posting the image on his twitter page, the image was no available, instead Twitter now displayed the message “This image has been removed in response to a report from the copyright holder,” in place of the tweet.


Twitter spokesperson told CNBC: “Per our copyright policy, we respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives,

“Twitter responds to copyright complaints submitted under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)”

Twitter began challenging Trump’s tweets in May and has repeatedly clashed with him since then. The president has threatened to change laws on social media after Twitter labeled one of his tweets about postal voting inaccurate and hid a tweet about looting, which Twitter said fomented violence.
