Turkeys highest court ruled today that the recent nationwide Twitter block is a violation of the free-speech protections written into the countrys constitution. Thats good news for Turkish activists and a powerful vote of legitimacy for Twitter itself, which had openly lobbied for lifting the block. Its still unclear whether Prime Minister Ergodan will lift the ban to comply with the ruling, but they will have a 30-day window to do so, dating from the lower-court ruling on March 26th.
