Twitter suspends FADER & other hip hop twitters over a tracklist?

The Fader suspended from twitter

Twitter accounts for The FADER, Pigeons & Planes, 2DopeBoyz, and HipHop-N-More all appeared as suspended simultaneously today (6/27). Navjosh, editor of HipHop-N-More, explained that HHNM’s suspension was because Atlantic Records filed a complaint with Twitter after they posted the track list to Young Thug’s new album, Beautiful Thugger Girls, before its release on June 16. Read Navjosh’s tweets about the situation below.

UPDATE: Vice reports that the other suspensions were from posting BET Awards content:

Sources at multiple publications say that at least some of the takedowns were related to content from the BET Awards, and came at the behest of Viacom, BET’s parent company. The editor of one publication confirmed this to VICE News, and there’s evidence of Viacom’s request — including a specific takedown request from Viacom to Twitter that includes tweets from the FADER and Pigeons & Planes — on Lumen, a searchable database of DMCA-related actions.

In other news, Young Thug added a last-minute release show happening at Terminal 5 this week.
