Taking into account an election result which shows that most Turks do not care if their government is corrupt, the Turkish Prime Minister simply slammed a constitutional court ruling which lifted a ban on Twitter. While he is currently purging the state of anyone who disagrees with him, the constitutional court may find itself on his list as well.
Prime Minister claimed that the court should have rejected a request to restore access to the micro-blogging website. He was cited in the news before departing on a trip to Azerbaijan that although the government did comply with the ruling, he didn’t respect it.
Apparently, Twitter’s appeal should have been rejected on procedural grounds. We remind that access to Twitter was blocked last month in the run-up to national elections, but the country’s telecoms authority had to lift the 2-week-old ban after the court ruled the block breached freedom of speech.
Turkish Prime Minister wanted the service offline so that opposition groups would stop using it in order to point out a corruption scandal that involved both Prime Minister and his ministers. The government had managed to silence the press, but couldn’t stop people chatting about it online.
Unfortunately, his electoral base is in the less well-connected poorer regions of the country, and his voters didn’t actually care about corruption or whatever, so Prime Minister did well in the elections.
Ironically enough, that means that all the politician has to do to become incredibly popular is be nicer to the well educated parts of country and allow more free speech. Perhaps, for Turkey this way is “too easy”.

|One more reason why turkey should never become a member of European Union.|
|Yes it's safe to live in Turkey.|
The problem is twitter don't respond to court orders as they do in UK or France and they don't pay tax while they earn money in Turkey.

|Just another bullshit news by an anonymous user who spreads lies about his own country all over the net. Infact, twitter is bypassing the user's accounts for U.S goverment's intelligence services like F.B.I, C.I.A or N.S.A. Additionally, the twitter is unlawful and they got a huge pile of income from Turkish users like 30 million usd. In this way, the government has said;" PAY YOUR TAX" otherwise i will fight against you. Recently the twitter's Head Of Global Public policy Colin Crowell is in Turkey to negotiate the demands of Turkish Government about vandalism and taxes:) And when you see some rebels doing vandalism on the net to terrorize the streets by fighting against the government forces. You know what i meant by saying;" VANDALISM" though? It means, some dickheads gathering up together and try to make their own rules, but they get middle-finger instead :)And, you the people guess it's a lawfull protesting and they want peace? The user who has written this article/news/topic/ bullshit is not even aware of the public policy... Am i right? And, does it make him/her right to be able to write on this site? Go get out your head out of the ground and critisize the bullshit that it's smell comes until here...|
