Twitter blocked two accounts on Sunday that had been used to spread
corruption allegations against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip
Erdogan, his government and his inner circle.
The move came after high-level meetings between the government and
executives from the company last week, and after the Turkish government
provoked a storm in March by trying to ban the network entirely.
The two accounts blocked on Sunday — @Haramzadeler333 and @Bascalan —
leaked large amounts of secret documents and recorded phone
conversations implicating Erdogan, his family and associates in a
wide-ranging corruption scandal.
