Yesterday there was a big election in Turkey really important for country's future. While the result is still unknown up until now the results suggest elections will see a second round. While all of these are happening Twitter has decided to restrict content in Turkey. Twitter's decision to block content in Turkey has sparked intense debates about free speech.
Twitter to restrict content in Turkey
In response to legal process and to ensure Twitter remains available to the people of Turkey, we have taken action to restrict access to some content in Turkey today.— Twitter Global Government Affairs (@GlobalAffairs) May 13, 2023
Elon Musk's stance on freedom of speech has been brought to light by the move. With Turkey's political future in limbo, the result of this political decision could reshape the country's homegrown approaches and its associations with provincial powers.
The upcoming elections in Turkey are extremely significant. Following twenty years in power, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan faces an imposing test to his administration from resistance pioneer Kemal Kilicdaroglu. Pre-political decision surveys show a nearby race, with Kilicdaroglu holding a slight lead. The result is not clear as of now but it looks like second round is coming up.
