article imageTurkey blocks access to Twitter after PM's threat

By AFP     Mar 20, 2014 in Technology

Turkey blocked access to Twitter late Thursday, hours after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to "wipe out" the online messaging service, the Hurriyet newspaper reported.

Twitter's public policy team immediately said on its official @policy feed that Turks could get around the block by tweeting through mobile telephone text services.

"We will wipe out Twitter. I don't care what the international community says," Erdogan said earlier at an election rally in the western province of Bursa.

"They will see the Turkish republic's strength," he added.
