Twitter Censorship On Behalf Of Turkish Government

twitter-turkey-censor-460

The link Post Coup Censorship takes you to a list of twenty-three (23) journalist/publicist accounts verified as withheld by Twitter in Turkey.

I have tweeted to Efe Kerem Sözeri about this issue and was advised the censorship is based on IP addresses. Sözeri points out that use of a VPN is one easy means of avoiding the censorship.

Hopefully that was productive than a rant about Twitter’s toadyism and self-anointed role to prevent abuse (as opposed to empowering Twitter users to avoid abuse on their own).
