US on Turkey's Twitter ban: more tweets than before

Protesters demonstrate against the ban on Twitter in Ankara on March 22, 2014The United States on Monday noted there have been more Turkish tweets since the prime minister controversially banned the micro-blogging service than before. Turkey’s telecommunications authority blocked local access to the US social network Thursday under orders of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after opposition members used the social network to post telephone recordings implicating him in a major corruption scandal. The move has attracted ire from the international community, with Washington on Friday denouncing the blow to “the right to free speech.” But State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf noted Monday that “there have been more tweets from Turkey since the government blocked (Twitter) than there were before.”
