Turkey blocks social media again to stall protests – here’s how to access them


Turkey has once again blocked access to social media in an apparent effort to keep a lid on protests; many in the capital and elsewhere are demonstrating following the arrest of a number of opposition leaders.

Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, and YouTube are reportedly blocked or at least being throttled to the point of inaccessibility, reported Turkey Blocks. The outage started late last night and seems to be ongoing.

The State Department has issued several warnings over the unrest in the country’s southeast and planned protests in Ankara today.

The government also blocked internet access entirely in some locations earlier this week for several days.

Are you in Turkey, or know someone who is? Here are some methods we collected last time to help get around these blocks.
