Social media has made it simpler for the public to keep up to date on what their local government is doing thanks to innovations like live-streaming.
A provincial government in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa found out how easy it can be for a livestream to go awry after broadcasting a meeting between ministers with the Facebook Live cat filter turned on.
The error was noticed by an eagle-eyed viewer. “Filter hata lo. Banda billi bana hua hai (Remove the filter, the man has been turned into a cat),” the viewer said.
While the filter was quickly turned off, the images still went viral.
