Shooting Outside German Synagogue Was Livestreamed On Twitch

30 minutes after being spread on Twitch, this video was immediately removed from this platform. However, some uploaded it to a few video sites.

On October 09, a shooting took place outside a synagogue in German when Jewish people were participating in one of their most important holidays, leading to two deaths. It was noted that the suspect live-streamed a 35-minute video on Twitch, a famous live streaming video platform of Amazon.

The attacker killed two people and live-streamed via Twitch.

The video recorded the moment when he shot two people and attempted to attack the synagogue. Luckily, he didn’t succeed.

This attack reminded us of the Christchurch video that was available on Facebook 06 months ago. At that time, Mark Zuckerberg and his company faced heavy criticism as they let the video approach too many watchers.

Back to the shooting outside the German synagogue, only 05 people were found witnessing the incident when it took place, and around 2,200 people watched the video before it disappeared from Twitch.

30 minutes after being spread on Twitch, this video was immediately removed from this platform. However, some uploaded it to a few video sites.

It was obvious that tech companies have learned how to give quicker reactions to struggle against extremism, as well as how to rapidly remove such videos out of their own platforms.

A Twitch spokesperson said, as quoted by CNET, “We are shocked and saddened by the tragedy that took place in Germany today, and our deepest condolences go out to all those affected. Twitch has a zero-tolerance policy against hateful conduct, and any act of violence is taken extremely seriously.”

The spokesperson also further said, “We are working with urgency to remove this content and permanently suspend any accounts found to be posting or reposting content of this abhorrent act.”

The two victims in this attack were confirmed dead and law enforcement in German has believed that there was an involvement of many other attackers in the pitiful incident. The Verge reported that only one culprit appeared in the video.
