Turkey's president tweets against Youtube, Google bans



Maybe it's time to ban Twitter too in Turkey...

"Turkey's president used his Twitter account Thursday to slam the country's ban on YouTube and some Google services.

In separate tweets sent out late Thursday, Abdullah Gül said he did not approve of the bans and had instructed officials to look into legal ways to reopen access.

Courts have blocked access to YouTube since 2008 over videos deemed to be insulting to Turkey's founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

Last week, Turkey extended the ban to some Google pages that use the same Internet Protocol addresses as YouTube.

In January, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe urged Turkey to abolish or reform a law allowing it to block around 3,700 Internet sites."
