Twitter Blackout: Turkey’s Huge Step Into the Dark Ages!

Hours after PM Erdoğan’s threat to eradicate Twitter, Turkish government blocked access to the microblogging site

Finally, he did it!
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan threatened to eradicate “Twitter Schwitter” during a stump speech in Bursa on March 20, 2014 and access to the site twitter.com was blocked in Turkey soon after midnight on March 21, 2014.
P24 condemns this move by the Turkish government in the strongest terms.
This is a huge step backwards for Turkey that will take the country to the same league with the most oppressive regimes in the world.
We call all our friends and colleagues around the globe to stand in solidarity with their fellow “tweeters” in Turkey.
P24 is determined to fight the government’s censorship and keep struggling for freedom of expression and communication through all the national and international legal means available to us.
Until we “tweet” again!
