Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are struggling to remove New Zealand mosque shooting videos
Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are struggling to remove New Zealand mosque shooting videos. Shortly after, tech giants scrambled to remove his accounts, but versions of the video remained on some sites hours after the shootings, which killed at least 49 people. In July, YouTube said in a blog post that its Top News section would highlight videos from news organizations and it would link to news articles immediately in the wake of a breaking news event. Reddit removed the video and similar links at the request of New Zealand police, according to a Redditor who first posted the video. But users who found the video elsewhere online claimed to have downloaded copies and were offering to share the files in direct messages.
