  • Twitter-ban

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday a constitutional court ruling lifting a ban on Twitter was wrong and should be overturned. "The constitutional court's ruling on Twitter did not serve
justice. This ruling should be corrected," Erdogan told a parliamentary meeting of his AK Party. 

Access to Twitter was blocked on March 21 in the run-up to local elections, but Turkey's telecoms authority lifted the two-week-old ban last Thursday after the court ruled that the block breached freedom of  expression.
