Twitter sidelined a pair of popular sports publication accounts after fielding complaints they ran afoul of copyright rules for sharing video snippets from US football games. An @SBNationGIF account at Twitter remained out of commission on Tuesday while that of @Deadspin was back in action. "We are working with Twitter to resolve the issue and restore the account," VoxMedia said of its @SBNationGIF.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Tuesday that there was "not much clarity" about the current trial of Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post reporter jailed in an espionage case in Tehran. The U.S. government has heard reports that Rezaian has been convicted, but has not received any announcement through official channels, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.
