Turkey Bans Twitter and We Along with the Rest of the World Think it’s Bullsh*t

turkey bans twitter

Thursday evening, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan shut down Twitter as a result of a scandal involving recordings that allegedly reveal corruption in his administration, which was made public and exacerbated though social media.

It’s a shame that Erdogan and his posse thought that banning Twitter would put the kibosh on continued public scrutiny because his actions just triggered a very angry reaction the world over. We happen to hate politician bullies that attempt to take away the voice of the people. So in the interim, while the Turkish people fight their battle, we as a global society have their back and we’ll fight to the Twitter death…


@alauraschneiderLooking at the reactions that #TwitterisblockedinTurkey is causing, Erdogan will have to care about what the int. community says quite soon.
