Meta Roll In Massacre

Meta Platforms Inc. said the gunman accused of killing 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, sent direct messages related to his attack on one of its platforms, which the company learned of after the shooting happened. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) had said initially that the gunman posted his plans publicly on social media, but two Meta spokespeople said the posts were in “private one-to-one text messages,” and did not say which platform the shooter used to communicate.
