All's fair in WAR? Twitter removes Trump's post featuring his OWN IMAGE after NYT files copyright complaint
Added 07-02-20 12:37:02am EST - “Twitter has taken down a post by US President Donald Trump, in which he used a photo of himself to make a meme. The tweet was yanked shortly after the Times, embroiled in a bitter feud with Trump, filed a copyright claim.” - Rt.com

The tweet in question was posted by Trump on Tuesday and featured a photo of him along with words:”In reality they’re not after me, they’re after you. I’m just in the way.”
Trump is no stranger to using photos of himself to make a statement on his social media of choice (cue his Game of Thrones social media phase). This time, however, the US president apparently made a mistake, using a picture snapped by Times’ photographer Damon Winter.
UNREAL!!! Twitter is censoring this photo @realDonaldTrump tweeted. ???????????? It’d be a shame if we made it go viral again ???? pic.twitter.com/3PrAkSYIs3
It did not take long for the paper, which has recently escalated its attacks on the Republican leader, to spot Trump's apparent blunder and file a copyright claim, Axios first reported on Wednesday.
Upon removing the post, Twitter confirmed that the company acted upon a copyright complaint from a rights holder. The Times, in turn, acknowledged that they urged the social media giant to take action.
