Twitter suspends the accounts of a number of top music sites
At least four major music sites were suspended by Twitter on Tuesday including Fader, Pigeons and Planes, 2DOPEBOYZ and Hip Hop N More. In protest, music fans tweeted using the hashtag #FreeFader.
Twitter gave the reason for the ban. However, this week many music sites tweeted footage from the BET Awards and NBA Awards without permission.
Pigeons and Planes editor in chief Jacob Moore told The Verge that his site was notified of a copyright violation by Viacom, which owns BET. Hip Hop N More editor Navjosh believes that his site had been suspended over a complaint from Atlantic Records. They believe it’s for tweeting the track list for Young Thug’s “Beautiful Thugger Girls.”
It’s unclear if Twitter is taking a tougher stance or just making a one-time point about infringement.
