Notably, the BTS WORLD account is the main account regarding BTS's activities on video games. But as of writing this article, the account can no longer be accessed. 

Following this, a plethora of netizens and ARMYs, the fandom name of BTS, were shocked when BTS WORLD's Twitter account suddenly became suspended

Fans were then surprised to find out that there has been a "team" behind the random suspension called "Team Copyright." The "team" identifies as Bangladeshi cyber security researchers.

Team Copyright has continuously reported the BTS WORLD official account, initially having Twitter remove the profile picture and cover photo of the page before eventually suspending the account.

Team Copyright has been doing the same thing to accounts related to BTS which include fan pages of ARMYs. Notably, some accounts of ARMYs' accounts have had their profile pictures and headers removed with infringement claims. 

As per Team Copyright's Facebook page, it explains that they are a non-profit organization that aims to have a "a clean cyberspace" wanting to remove "adult and atheist" content online. This made netizens and ARMYs more confused as BTS nor any popular K-pop group does not promote the aforementioned topics.

Notably as of writing this article, the BTS WORLD Twitter page cannot be reached and it is virtually unsearchable. The main Twitter page of BTS is still up and running, however.

HYBE, the label of BTS, has not yet released a statement regarding the matter.
