Twitter disabled a campaign-style video that US President Donald Trump retweeted yesterday, citing a copyright complaint.
The video, which included music from the group Linkin Park, disappeared from Mr Trump's Twitter feed with the notification: "This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner."
Twitter removed the video, which Mr Trump had retweeted from White House social media director Dan Scavino, after it received a Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice from Machine Shop Entertainment, according to a notice posted on the Lumen Database, which collects requests for removal of online materials.
Machine Shop is a management company owned by the rock band Linkin Park, according to its LinkedIn page.
"We respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorised representatives," a Twitter representative said in an email statement.
Linkin Park also said on Their twitter feed that they do not endorse Mr Trump and that a "cease and desist has been issued".

Twitter began challenging Mr Trump's tweets in May and has repeatedly clashed with him since.
The social media company has several times disabled or commented on tweets by the president because of what it said were copyright complaints or violations of a policy against threatening violence.
Twitter removed an image the president tweeted on 30 June, which included a picture of Mr Trump, because of a complaint from the New York Times, whose photographer had shot the image.
The company also put a tweet from the president behind a warning label in late May, saying that he had violated its rules against "glorifying violence" when he advocated that Minneapolis authorities be tough in responding to protests over the death of George Floyd.
