Twitter Removes Fake Video Tweeted By Trump Over Copyright Violation

Twitter on Wednesday took down a video tweeted by President Donald Trump yesterday due to a copyright claim related to the presence of a five-second clip from a video by music group Nickelback which had been edited to mock Joe Biden.

Trump tweeted the edited video with a line from the Nickelback song from the music video: “Look at this Photograph.”

In the original video, the line is accompanied by a clip of Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger holding up a photograph of himself and his friend.

In Trump’s case, the video he tweeted featured a photo of Joe Biden and Hunter Biden at a golf course with Ukrainian gas executives.

Twitter recently said that it will not take down tweets from politicians, even if they break the site’s rules, but that the platform may suppress their reach. In the case of Trump’s tweet, the tweet remains up, but the accompanying parody video has been removed.
