"the terror attack was tailor-made for social media"
"Just before the Brenton Tarrant stepped into the mosque, he posted a post in an online forum. In it, he told me that he has to carry out the attack and linked to a Facebook profile where you could see the world in a live broadcast. "
"He loaded up a 74-page ”manifesto”, where he explains the motive for the terror attack. Tarrant finished with a call to the users on the forum, which is popular among right-wing extremists the world over: ”please, take this”."
"the Whole deed seems to have been optimized for just this. To become viral. "
"The social media platforms have the last day worked at high pressure in order to erase the video showing the mass killing."
"There are many good arguments why one should refrain from spreading it. The movie can spur the so-called ”copycats” to do the same. Every retweet is a further tremendous violation of a grieving relative. "
"For the media, it becomes a large dilemma. When a man commits an ideologically driven mass murder, there are a large newsworthy to tell what drove the killer. At the same time, we know, they say it themselves, that the objective of a ”manifesto”, images and live broadcasts is to get the spread."
"When Anders Behring Breivik, a other as Tarrant writes, murdered 77 people in 2011, although he manifests and images. "
"Then as now, wanted to Breivik that it would be printed in newspapers, cranked on the tv and spread online. Then as now, chose – and choose – most of the media to show some of the pictures and to quote from the manifesto. The public interest considering."
"In other cases have drawn the opposite conclusions. "
"In August 2014 was spread a film on social media that showed the beheading of an american taken hostage by terrorsekten IS in Syria. Initially, several medieredaktioner – also Swedish – moving images from the film (but not on the actual execution). "
"But it would not be long before they started to shut down. You no longer wanted to spread the propaganda. IS atrocious movies contributed not only to spreading terror among the enemies and civilians, they have also proven to be an important part in the recruitment of new terrorists."
"ICE has since produced many videos on the murder, one vidrigare than the other, but usually without the big media's help. We have reported on them, but have not used their materials. It is possibly not konsekvensneutralt, but not impossible that the attitude will soon apply to all social media-optimized and terrorism."
