Twitter is unblocked in Turkey after the Turkish Prime Minister wanted to wipe it out. The High Council for Telecommunications (TIB), immediately removed the block on Twitter on Wednesday after an administrative court in Ankara had issued a stay on the often called Dictator Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s controversial decision to block access to Twitter in Turkey.
A number of complaints were filed challenging the controversial ban last week. The Union of Turkish Bar Associations (TBB), the Ankara Bar Associations, and Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) Deputy Parliamentary Group Chair Oktay Vural were among those who applied to the administrative court to challenge the ban, Turkey’s Hurriyet daily reports.
The Constitutional Court is expected to review individual applications pertaining to the ban on Wednesday.
Zeynep Tufekci, an assistant professor at the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina and a fellow at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University, wrote via Twitter:
“I’m told since this is a stay of execution, it can only be lifted by the court that stayed it. Probably. So the government may need a new court order,”
