Tech companies scramble to take down New Zealand shooting video

Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are struggling to halt the spread of the horrific footage that appears to show a massacre at a mosque in New Zealand. One of the shooters live streamed the attack on Facebook. Twitter said it suspended an account related to the shooting and is working to remove the video. New Zealand police asked social media users to stop sharing the purported shooting footage.

Does this mean that we can now call them hate filled dens of anger and push back on their domain holders? I mean, they have no problem doing that to Gab, Minds, and BitChute ~ the MSM that is.

Why not let people share the video? I get that it's an atrocious act, but it will let people see first hand just what happened and what we are dealing with.

Censorship doesn't work. Everyone has seen the vid already and many have saved copies.

YouTube sounds like a publisher rather than a platform.
