Twitter Challenges Turkish Access Ban Through The Courts

 6:21 pm on Mar 26, 2014 (gmt 0)

That's an interesting step, and I wonder if it's doomed to fail.

It’s now been six days since the Turkish government blocked access to Twitter. Throughout this time, we’ve been engaged in discussion with Turkish authorities to hear their concerns, inform them about how our platform and policies work, and try and bring this situation to a resolution. But still, the millions of people in Turkey who turn to Twitter to make their voices heard are being kept from doing just that.

So today, we filed petitions for lawsuits we have been working on together with our independent Turkish attorney over the last few days in various Turkish courts to challenge the access ban on Twitter, joining Turkish journalists and legal experts, Turkish citizens, and the international community in formally asking for the ban to be lifted.Twitter Challenges Turkish Access Ban Through The Courts [blog.twitter.com]

Some countries have stronger views on libel and privacy than others. The wonder to me is that many more countries haven't blocked them.
