  • Twitter officials are cracking down on copyright abuse.

    The website will now show users a disclaimer that a status is in violation of copyright laws rather than completely deleting the tweet.

    If a person is found breaching copyright laws, the message will now read “This Tweet from [username] has been withheld in response to a report from the copyright holder.”

    In addition to the warning message, the status will also include a link to Twitter’s copyright policies and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

    Twitter users will be able to interact with the message and ask questions about why the message was removed.
