VIDEOS INCLUDING VIOLENCE VIDEOS WILL BE PENALIZED




Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Representatives from Facebook, Twitter and Google are meeting the federal government to discuss proposed laws designed to crack down on social media platforms failing to promptly remove content such as the footage streamed from Christchurch.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the proposed laws in response to the ongoing backlash following the attack which killed 50 people.

"We need to prevent social media platforms being weaponized with terror content," he says. 

The proposals include penalties of up to $10 million for corporates and personal liability for executives responsible, including imprisonment.

Representatives from social media platforms Facebook, Google and Twitter are in a meeting today organized by the Department of Communications and the Arts.
