To censor its people, the government of Turkey attempted to block Twitter, and the internet, via Twitter and other social media platforms.

Business Insider reported that ban supposedly started on March 20, but the amount of tweets coming from Turkey has remained constant.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced, “We’ll eradicate Twitter. I don’t care what the international community says. Everyone will witness the power of the Turkish Republic.”

According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Jillian C. York, “Earlier this month, he warned that his government could ban YouTube and Facebook following the upcoming March 30 elections. During last year’s Gezi protests, he called social media ‘the worst menace to society.’

More than 45% of Turkey’s 80 million people use the Internet, and around 14% of them use Twitter.

York’s article called the ban a “lesson in futility,” because with little technical know-how, someone in Turkey could easily change their computer’s DNS and access Twitter. Tweets coming from Turkey included the DNS information for alternative DNS services.

Twitter itself tweeted that Turkish users could post to Twitter using SMS.

And now Turkey remains plugged in with the rest of the world.
