As Jacinda Ardern prepares social media(censorship) crackdown, alleged gunman's video reappears - and gets huge traffic

Some 39 days after the Christchurch mosque massacres, social media sites are still struggling to stamp out copies of the gunman's video.

New York-based researcher Eric Feinberg reported he had found another 12 copies across Facebook (which was hosting five copies), Facebook-owned Instagram (six) and Google-owned YouTube (four). All were live as of Monday NZT.

One of the versions on YouTube - two minutes and 17 seconds of "highlights" - had clocked 773,009 views according to a screen grab taken by Feinberg on Monday.

"It was posted on March 15, 2019 and still up on April 21, 2019 at 5.10pm EDT," Feinberg told the Herald

The hate content researcher has been continually locating copies of the clip - which has been banned by NZ's Chief Censor - since March 15.
