Twitter and Turkey

Turkey has reinstated access to Twitter following an order from a constitutional court ruling that the ban breached freedom of expression, according to Reuters.

The social network was blocked around 13 days ago, but the barricade only served to make people more determined to access the service, and people in Turkey flocked to it in record numbers.
