"We are responding to a complaint about the copyright notice, which was sent to us by one of the right holders or by one of its representatives," said a spokesman for Twitter, without specifying who was at the origin of the complaint. The campaign team of the president was quick to denounce the decision, while calling on its supporters to discover the video "inspiring and unifying" on YouTube, where it is still available.
