“Facebook cannot be trusted.
“(They) let the live streaming of suicides, rapes and murders, continue to sponsor and publish the mosque attack video, enable advertisers to target’Jew haters’ and other hateful market sections and refuse to take any responsibility for any content or injury. They #DontGiveAZuck,” Edwards said in a followup tweet.
He deleted the tweets, saying he was bombarded with poisonous traffic on his Twitter account.
“I’ve deleted the tweets promoting my conversation concerning Mark Zuckerberg’s interview due to the quantity of toxic and misinformed visitors that they prompted,” Edwards mentioned.
According to a report in New Zealand Herald, Edwards lashed out at Zuckerberg after the Facebook CEO, during a meeting in America’s ABC TV network,”poured cold water on even a small delay for Facebook Live, saying it could’break’ the service that’s often used for two-way communicating”.
The Facebook livestreaming of this New Zealand terror assault sparked international outrage. The movie was viewed over 4,000 days before it was removed. The video was later shared in countless on other social media platforms, including Twitter and YouTube.
In an interview with Radio New Zealand on Monday, Edwards stated Zuckerberg’s”greater good” argument was”disingenuous” because”he can not tell us won’t tell ushow many suicides are livestreamed, how many murders, the number of sexual assaults”.
“I’ve asked Facebook exactly that last week and they just don’t have these figures or will not give them to us,” he added.
Edwards also requested Facebook to hand over names of people who shared with the alleged gunman’s video to NZ Police which the social media giant refused to discuss.
Following New Zealand, Britain has gone tough on Facebook as it comes to live-streaming.
Internet providers and technology giants like Facebook and Google is going to be forced to eliminate violent content in a brand new law passed in Australia last week.
Under the law, which passed both houses of Parliament, obligations will be placed on net organizations to stop the spread of violent material. Failure to do so could observe executives face up to three years in prison, or penalties of around 10 percent of their platform’s annual turnover.
Social networking firms, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, also face hefty fines or prohibit in Britain should they don’t remove harmful content fast under new legislation.
The new”duty of care” laws may even hold social media executives personally liable for terrorist and child abuse content on their platforms.
