Turkish Court Halts The Government’s Application To Ban Twitter


Breaking: A Turkish court has granted a motion for stay of execution of the Turkish government’s application to block Twitter in the country.

The decision was taken following appeals to courts by by the Turkish Bar Association, Journalists’ Association of Turkey and some politicians, reports local tech blog Webrazzi.

According to local legal experts, even if the telco appeals the court’s decision it must still allow access to Twitter, at least until an upper court makes a final ruling.
