In the aftermath of the deadly mass shooting at a Tops Friendly Markets grocery store in Buffalo, elected officials are calling for tighter restrictions on big tech companies, but cybersecurity experts warn that eliminating some social media posts before viewers notice the content can be difficult.

Gov. Kathy Hochul slammed big tech companies after the deadly supermarket shooting on Saturday, which claimed the lives of 10 individuals and is being called a hate crime.

“I want them to look me in the eye and tell me they’re doing everything they can,” Hochul said. “They have a moral, ethical and legal responsibility, in my opinion, to be held accountable for what’s posted there, and take it down the second something this sinister surfaces on their site.”

Police said the shooter rigged a camera onto a helmet and streamed footage live to a platform called Twitch.

“This individual wanted some notoriety,” said Sam Jackson, assistant professor in the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity at the University at Albany.

He said companies like Twitch absolutely have the ability to shut down feeds featuring violence.

“But it’s really difficult to find something like a livestreamed attack in the moment,” Jackson cautioned.

A spokesperson for the Amazon-owned company said the stream was yanked from its site within minutes, but clips of the graphic broadcast started surfacing on other platforms.

Jackson said the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism issued a content protocol in response to Saturday’s shooting.

“Where they activate a set of response mechanisms, when they see something like the Buffalo attack happen, that sort of allows coordination between the social media companies,” he said.

Hochul believes Twitch and its counterparts can do better. But experts said it's easier said than done.

“We need a specialty agency that can look at this from the lens of multiple audiences, multiple types of users. You have your Facebook and your Twitter but then you have these deep channels that need to be monitoring,” said Kyla Garrett Wagner, assistant professor of communication law at Syracuse University.

Jackson noted that "individuals can find toxic information and toxic spaces online if they are seeking those places out.”
