Just days after he was forced to lift the ban he enforced on Twitter, Turkey Prime Minister accused the social media network of tax evasion, and implied that YouTube and Facebook might be violating the country's laws as well.
US-based video-sharing giant YouTube representative Gonenc Gurkaynak filed a legal complaint to the Turkish Consitutional Court against the ban that prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued against the service.
Just over a week after blocking Twitter, Turkey is now moving to shut down access to YouTube in a bid to stem off the source of corruption scandal and reputation-damaging leaks related to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Twitter is now offering an alternative way of sending Tweets via SMS after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan lambasted social media for linking him to a corruption scandal and blocking the social network in the country.
The prime minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is planning to pass a law that will ban Facebook and YouTube in the country after recordings revealing his group's alleged corruption went viral on the Internet.
