New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s Twitter display picture removed by the microblogging site on Thursday, in response to a “report from the copyright holder.”

Clicking on Shah’s Display Picture on his verified handle showed a blank page with the message: “Media not displayed. This image has been removed in response to a report from the copyright holder.”

The image was restored after a while. There were no other details available from Twitter.

Twitter had recently also removed the display picture on the official Twitter handle of BCCI, also citing copyright violation.
