A Turkish court has ordered its government to lift the statewide block on Twitter that it imposed last week after tweets began spreading linking the prime minister to a corruption scandal, the AFP reports. Access to Twitter is reportedly expected to be restored later today; The Associated Press reports that the court has only issued a temporary injunction against the ban, so its unclear if Twitter access will remain restored, should the blockade be lifted. Turkeys government initially placed the ban as protests rose and a corruption scandal began to embroil the government just days before an election.
