Twitter Back Online In Turkey

The Turkish authorities have lifted a ban on Twitter following Wednesday's court ruling, according to media reports.

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

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had vowed to "wipe out Twitter" after users spread allegations of corruption.

Twitter's public policy team welcomed the Turkish court ruling, and said "we hope to have Twitter access restored in Turkey soon". The court told Turkey's telecommunication authority (TIB) to act on the ruling.

Following the Twitter ban the Turkish government also banned access to YouTube, after a video on the website appeared to reveal top officials discussing how to stage an undercover attack inside Syria.
