Sajid Javid, the Home Secretary, condemned tech firms' failure to stop the 17-minute video being shared for more than 10 hours after the self-professed white supremacist killer Brenton Tarrant opened fire on Muslims at prayer.
The @brentontarrant Twitter account was suspended not long after the shooting on Friday, as was the brenton.tarrant.9 Facebook page.

Users intent on sharing the violent video took several approaches ― doing so at times with an nearly military precision. Copies reviewed by Reuters showed that some users had recorded the video playing on their own phones or computers to create a new version with a digital fingerprint different from the original to evade companies' detection systems. Others shared shorter sections or screenshots from the gunman's livestream, which would also be harder for a computer program to identify.
In August past year, a shooting at a Madden NFL 19 video-game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, was captured on live video. It starts with the attacker driving to a mosque. Footage from this stream later found its way into other platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Reddit.
It also was using audio technology to detect Christchurch broadcast footage, in which gunshots could be heard and music played in the attacker's auto, according to a copy reviewed by Reuters.
With billions of users, Facebook and YouTube are "ungovernable" at this point, said Vaidhyanathan, who called Facebook's livestreaming service a "profoundly stupid idea". Facebook says it does not want to act as a censor, as videos of violence, such as those documenting police brutality or the horrors of war, can serve an important objective.
