    Turkey's premier repeats threat to block social media


    by PressTV

    Turkey's Prime Minister has repeated a threat to ban online social media websites like Facebook and Twitter in the country.

    Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan was addressing thousands of his AK party supporters in the northern province of Bursa. He also said he doesn't care about the international backlash from the global community, and said he would QUOTE wipe out all such websites. Erdogan said two weeks ago that Turkey could ban Facebook and YouTube, which he says have been abused by his enemies after a stream of audio recordings purportedly revealing corruption in his inner circle emerged online.
