Indeed, the whole attack appeared to have been organized for the age of social media. Before it took place, it appeared that there was a job on the board of anonymous 8chan – a forum that was particularly lawful without the elements of racist and extremist jobs – previewing the horror. It linked to an 87-page manifesto filled with anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim ideas, and guided his Facebook page users to host the live stream. Apparently, the attack was happening on Twitter.
The attacks took place on the Christchurch site, New Zealand, which seemed to have struggled to recover from a devastating earthquake which had brought thousands of buildings down and killed almost 200 people in 201
But this attack was far more than that influx in Christ. This related to the rise of online white supremacy and the power of social media in the dissemination of this message.

Take another example. Before the attack, the gunman told its online audience subscribed to a PewDiePie YouTube channel, which has 89 million trailers on the platform. PewDiePie, Swedish gaming gaming whose name is right as Felix Kjellberg, has promoted alt-right themes in the past and attracted criticism on YouTube's anti-Semitach channel.
