Twitter appears to have blocked two anonymous accounts that were used to release secretly recorded conversations implicating Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and senior government officials in a damning corruption scandal.
Turks are currently unable to access YouTube and Twitter because of government bans. Turkey's Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, claims Twitter and other social networking sites are used to spread lies.
The prime minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, shut the lights on Twitter right about midnight Thursday, a move aimed at curtailing social media posts that suggest government corruption.
Turkish anti-terrorism police carried out raids in six cities on Tuesday, detaining at least five people with alleged links to al-Qaida, including two employees of a government-supported Islamic charity group that provides aid to Syria, media reports and officials said.
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government is considering legal arrangements that could lead to the re-trial of hundreds of military officers and other people who were convicted of plotting to topple the government, the head of Turkey's bar association said Saturday.
Turkish police on Thursday subdued a man who arrived near Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's office in the capital Ankara carrying a fake bomb, an official said.

Mass protests in Brazil and halfway around the world in Turkey are the latest manifestations of the coming of age of a politically aware global middle class that, armed with little more than Twitter and Facebook, is demanding greater government accountability, basic rights and a more equitable distribution of resources.
A commander in one of Iran's volunteer military units said that the world will know when the conflict in Syria ends — it will be marked by the fall of Israel.
Rebellion has shaken Turkey since May 31. Is it comparable to the Arab upheavals that overthrew four rulers since 2011, to Iran's Green Movement of 2009 that led to an apparent reformer being elected president last week, or perhaps to Occupy Wall Street, which had negligible consequences?
Turkish riot police fired tear gas and water cannons on Sunday at demonstrators trying to return to Istanbul's main square, maintaining a hard line against rekindled protests as the prime minister's supporters prepared to rally across town.
Police will remove protesters from Istanbul's Taksim Square within the next 24 hours, said Turkey's prime minister on Thursday, in a blunt warning that marks the end of the government's patience with a weeks-long rally that's escalated into violence.
Turkey certainly has been a reliable ally of the United States for many decades. Compared with Egypt and other countries in the Middle East, its democracy is stable and its economy is growing. But celebrating Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Turkey as a model seems not quite right.
