Erdogan Defends Twitter Ban


Turkey’s Prime Minister confirmed on Sunday that he was the one who gave the orders to shut down Twitter in the country, reports The Associated Press (AP).

Speaking at a campaign event in Istanbul ahead of March 30 municipal elections, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he had given the order because Twitter was not obeying Turkey's laws.
