How crazy there was a ban in the first place.

The Turkish authorities have lifted a ban on Twitter following Wednesday's constitutional court ruling, officials and media reports say.

The court had told the country's telecommunication authorities the two-week-old ban must be lifted as it was a breach of freedom of expression.

It may take a couple of hours for full access to Twitter to be restored.Turkey to Lift Twitter Ban [bbc.co.uk]

The big coincidence is that the ban happened right before local elections and ended immediately after. One wonders whether the "ban" had its desired effect.
