The UK has urged authorities in Turkey to reconsider any ban on access to social media. Freedom of speech and expression is a fundamental right for all, it said.
A Foreign Office spokesperson said: “We are concerned about reports suggesting that access to Twitter from Turkey may be blocked.
Social media has a vital role to play in a modern democracy, and helps to promote transparency and vibrant public debate.
We have long supported Turkey’s accession to the EU. As a candidate country, it is important for Turkey to promote the EU’s core values of freedom of expression, democracy and the rule of law.”
