Turkey extends censorship from Twitter to Youtube

Turkey Rubber Stamp Turkey Escalates Internet Blocking With YouTube Ban | Re/code

In their continuing effort to suppress discussion of corruption in the Turkish government, they have extended their censorship efforts from blocking Twitter to blocking Youtube. This appears to be in response to Google’s refusal to remove “offending” videos.

Reports suggest that the blocking is not completely effective. If you are in Turkey and being blocked, Anonymizer Universal is able to bypass the censorship. Our two week trial provides a quick solution.
