Twitter and DMCA takedowns

I just recieved an e-mail telling me a tweet of me dating from mid 2014 is withheld due to „Links to the unlicensed broadcast of the Copyrighted Content“.

The mail is interesting regarding three things:

  1. Linking to a site which embeds and links to live streams (no deeplink, just the start page) seems to be enought to be gagged by Twitter.
  2. The email contains estimated 20-30 other user’s tweets, full URL including username. Regarding privacy issues this is… odd, at least.
  3. The DMCA takedown notice refers to „[…] cricket matches of the West Indies tour of New Zealand, 2017-18“. My tweet dated from 2014.
    So, if your tweet links to some site and the content of the site changes in the future – you will be gagged.

I’m leaving you with this, do whatever you think is best.
