News Brief


The Turkish Constitutional Court ruled on Wednesday that a countrywide Twitter ban violated principles of free speech in Turkey, and ordered Turkey’s Telecommunications Directorate to cease the block on the microblogging service immediately. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan blocked access to the service nearly two weeks ago, just days before nationwide critical elections were held. “We welcome this Constitutional Court ruling, and hope to have Twitter access restored in Turkey soon,” Twitter’s policy team said in a tweet.
