Re: Twitter in Turkey The ban is reportedly a political flashpoint in Turkey. 

Industry Minister Fikri Isik said talks with Twitter were taking place and the ban would be lifted if the San Francisco-based firm appointed a representative in Turkey and agreed to block specific content when requested by Turkish courts.

I'm optimistic that Twitter responded with a counterproposal: The government of Turkey can get stuffed (so to speak), the people of Turkey will continue to work around the government's attempts to block Twitter, and Twitter Corp. will come back and talk to the next government after the people have overthrown their current regime later this year.

Also this: 

"Waking up to no Twitter in Turkey feels like waking up to a coup. The modern equivalent of occupying the radio stations," U.S. author and journalist Andrew Finkel, who has reported from Turkey for more than 20 years, said on his Twitter account.

Re: Twitter in Turkey I'm surprised anyone, including governments, still thinks blocking an outlet like Twitter will work, especially as a means to hide evidence of corruption...

Twitter in Turkey The Turkish Gov. is trying to block twitter ahead of the elections but this will inevitably backfire. Now Twitter is seeing more subscribers join in Turkey. There is no way to block vpn and proxies while internet access is still granted...
