Turkey blocked Twitter after the recent clashes in the country, the action could not have been implemented without Turkey’s PM “Recep Tyyip Erdogan approval. Twitter replied by removing Erdogan’s verified badge.
Still there’s no official statement by Twitter about the action; We think that Twitter has a reason here, Erdoğan showed hate toward twitter by blocking the microblog in Turkey, so that it’s time for twitter to react in their way!
War has been launched after removing Erdogan verified badge
We can tell that twitter has started the war against Erdogan on the microblog site, and here you go the two first reactions in reply to banning twitter in Turkey:
- Twitter announced a short code for the Turkish users to send their tweets via SMS
- Twitter removed Erdogan verified badge
Turkish users: you can send Tweets using SMS. Avea and Vodafone text START to 2444. Turkcell text START to 2555.
