rethinking autoplay

When a murderer shot and killed two US journalists last week in Virginia, he posted his video of the murders online. The video was then automatically uploaded and shared with Facebook and Twitter users without any warnings, upsetting the victims' families and many people who viewed the video without warning or desire. The viewers were linked to additional people who were then suddenly presented with the video, again without warnings.
