‘This incident is yet another reminder that Twitter is making up the rules as they go along…’
(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) Twitter censored President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign on Thursday by removing a video tribute to George Floyd and claiming it violated the company’s copyright policy.
The Team Trump account shared the four-minute video, in which the president commemorated the “grave tragedy” that was Floyd’s death.
The video shows peaceful protesters mourning Floyd’s death, and then Trump warns against the “violence and anarchy” that “radical left-wing groups” are trying to stir up in Floyd’s name.
Twitter took the video down, and now Team Trump’s tweet displays a message that says, “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”
