YouTube Now Blocked In Turkey


YouTube appears to be the next site on Turkey’s chopping block, and just one week after Twitter was banned.

The world’s largest video site has been banned in the country after two leaked recordings were uploaded, according to Business Insider.

One audio tape featured an intelligence chief discussing possible Syria military operations, and the other suggested that Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan helped published a sex tape of politician Deniz Baykal in 2010.

Although Twitter is still banned in Turkey, users have managed to work around it, and uploaded screenshots of the YouTube block:

The Associated Press confirmed the ban, citing the following message regarding on a Turkish telecommunications website:

“After technical analysis and legal consideration based on the law, administrative measure has been taken for this website.”

Turkey officials have yet to issue an official statement, and one has to wonder if more social media sites will soon meet the same fate.
