How To Block Violent Videos On Facebook, Twitter And YouTube

  • New Zealand massacre shows how online users find ways to share violent videos

Authorities made Facebook aware of the video shortly after the video began, according to Mia Garlick, Facebook's director of policy for Australia and New Zealand.

On YouTube, the video lingered for hours after the attack as different individuals republished it. "Please know we are working vigilantly to remove any violent footage", YouTube said in a tweet. "We also cooperate with law enforcement to facilitate their investigations as required", it said. In 2017 it said it would hire 3,000 people to review videos and other posts, on top of the 4,500 people Facebook already tasks with identifying criminal and other questionable material for removal.

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the document did not detail his murderous plans. That year, a video of a man shooting and killing another in Cleveland also shocked viewers.

But the viral reach of yet another obscene video caused politicians around the globe on Friday to voice the same conclusion: Tech companies are failing.

"What's going on here?" she said, referring to the shooter's ability to livestream for 17 minutes. "Something must have changed in him during the years he spent travelling overseas".

Damian Collins, the chairman of the Commons culture committee, said it appeared to be a "terror attack designed for social media" and demonstrated why there had to be "statutory regulation of the distribution of content online through social networks".

"All content praising, supporting and representing the attack and the perpetrator (s) should be removed from our platform", Facebook instructed content moderators in India, according to an email seen by Reuters.

Uber would maintain majority control of the self-driving arm and would use the investment to fund its research and development. In addition to Uber, SoftBank has poured money into ride-hailing companies such as Ola in India and Grab in Southeast Asia.


Users intent on sharing the violent video took several approaches. Twitter and Google said they were working to stop the footage being reshared.

"We are adding each video we to find to an internal data base which enables us to detect and automatically remove copies of the videos when uploaded again", she said in a statement.

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, who uses the moniker PewDiePie, said on Twitter that he was "absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person". Magnus Ranstorp of the Swedish National Defense College told the Associated Press that the manifesto published by the New Zealand assailant, Brenton Tarrant, is shorter and "more sloppy" than the Breivik publication-popular on the dark recesses of the internet; claims proliferated Friday that Tarrant was in contact with Breivik devotees.

Britain's interior minister said the companies needed to take more action.

YouTube tweeted about the shooting video, "Our hearts are broken over today's awful tragedy in New Zealand".

Ionescu said that's because video and images are harder to block than words.

The major internet platforms have pledged to crack down on sharing of violent images and other inappropriate content through automated systems and human monitoring, but critics say it isn't working. "That's unacceptable, it should have never happened, and it should have been taken down a lot more swiftly".
