Turkey blocks Twitter

  • Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has blocked Twitter access and is now threatening to totally wipe out the service. 

    "We now have a court order. We'll eradicate Twitter. I don't care what the international community says. Everyone will witness the power of the Turkish republic," he said. Erdogan has recently been bothered by the leaked documents and recordings revealing corruption. 

    He has also threatened to ban YouTube, which had been banned in the nation until 2010 since the videos were apparently insulting to Turkey.
