Turkey lifts `unconstitutional` Twitter ban
Washington: Turkey has officially lifted its ban on Twitter.
The move comes after two weeks of centralized network-level blackout.
Recently, the Turkish Constitutional Court ruled that the ban was unconstitutional.
According to the Verge, the microblogging site was initially blocked after a leaked recording of senior government officials, which had circulated through the site.
The White House openly pressured the Ergodan government to remove the block, while Turkish citizens turned to services like Tor and Google DNS redirecting to the site.
