Twitter Under Advertising Ban in Turkey
Turkey has established advertising bans on Twitter, Periscope and Pinterest after they failed to appoint local representatives in Turkey under the country’s new social media law.
Ankara's new law allows authorities to remove content from platforms, as opposed to simply blocking access as they did in the past. The new regulation additionally dictates that social media companies that do not appoint their representatives are liable for penalties.
Deputy Transport Minister Omer Fatih Sayan said Twitter and Pinterest's bandwidth would be cut by 50% in April and by 90% in May.
"We are determined to do whatever is necessary to protect the data, privacy and rights of our nation. We will never allow digital fascism and disregard of rules to prevail in Turkey”, Sayan commented.
Facebook and Youtube (owned by Alphabet’s Google) have both confirmed they will abide to the new regulations.
