Turkish court upholds appeal against Twitter blockage: media


A Turkish court upheld an appeal on Wednesday to end a blockage of Twitter which has provoked public outrage, local media said, though it was not immediately clear whether that meant the bar would be removed. Turkeys telecoms authority (TIB) blocked access to Twitter on Friday as Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan battles a corruption scandal which has seen a stream of anonymous postings purportedly revealing government wrongdoing appear on the social media platform in recent weeks. The blockage triggered local and international criticism days ahead of critical elections. Its earlier attempt to challenge the blockage failed when a court in Istanbul said there was no legal ruling for it to overturn.
